Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast, with me Craig Barton.
This is another of my conference Takeaways, where I sit down at the end of a conference with a fellow delegate to share our main takeaways for the benefit of people who are unable to attend. This time the event was researchEd Blackpool, which was held in the Las Vegas of Lancashire on March 23rd 2019.
At the end of a busy day, I sat down with organiser Simon Cox (@MathsMrCox) to discuss our takeaways from sessions by:
- Mark McCourt (@EmathsUK) – Phasing learning
- Mark Lehain (@lehain) – Everyone’s banging on about a knowledge-rich curriculum
- Anne Watson (@annemathswatson) – A reflection of the relationship between research and practice in mathematics education
- Oliver Cavigiloi (@olicav) – Dual Coding with teachers
- Colin Foster (@colinfoster77) – Using confidence assessment in low-stakes tests
- Simon Cox (@MathsMrCox) – Mobilising metacognition
- Ben Gordon (@mathsmrgordon) – Rise n Shine to Rosenshine
Huge thanks to researchEd Blackpool organiser Simon Cox for organising such a wonderful event, and squeezing out a few final drops of energy to talk to me for this podcast after such a long day. And to the living legend that is Tom Bennett, for creating a movement which truly does have the power to change students’ and teachers’ lives for the better all around the world.
