Hello and welcome to another episode of the Mr Barton Maths podcast, with me Craig Barton.

This is another episode in my Teaching from Home podcast series – a series dedicated to supporting teachers who are working from home amidst the Covid-19 outbreak of 2020.

My aim is that you will hear from a wide variety of teachers, sharing a wide variety of experiences. There will be technology focussed episodes – just how does remote teaching work? But also episodes focussed on the practicalities of coping with setting students appropriate work whilst also having to look after your own children at home. Then there are issues of safeguarding, differentiation, mindset and more that I hope will come up as we progress. There will be maths teachers, teachers of other subjects, and primary school teachers. There will be teachers from the UK and overseas. Hopefully something for everyone. I have no idea how long this series will go on for – but so long as people keep listening and hopefully finding it useful, I shall continue!

This time I spoke to teacher and general maths legend, Jamie Frost – or Dr Frost as he is possibly better known. We discussed what Jamie’s live teaching looks like during school closures, including issues such as modelling, questioning and differentiation. We then discussed Jamie’s platform – Dr Frost Maths – and the different ways schools around the country are using it. The virtual whiteboard tool in particular is excellent – do check it out if you haven’t seen it. There is the ability to import exam questions, share your screen with students, and also see what they have written. And it is all completely free.
