Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast, with me Craig Barton.
This time around I spoke to Ollie Lovell.
Ollie is a maths teacher from sunny Australia. He is also a head of department, blogger, research ravager, pioneering podcaster, and best-selling author
Now this marks Ollie’s fourth appearance on the show, today talking about his wonderful new book: Tools for Teachers.
- What has Ollie learned in 5 years of his fantastic ERRR podcast?
- What is Tools for Teachers about and how is it for?
- Then we discuss a few ideas from the book that we haven’t focussed much on on the podcast over the years:
- Regulation and relationships
- Finally I challenge Ollie to recommend a podcast episode or something to read for three types of teachers:
- A trainee/novice teacher
- A teacher who has been teaching for 20 years
- A senior leader
