Sinopse

Hello! My name is Craig Barton and I am a secondary school maths teacher at Thornleigh Salesian College, in sunny Bolton, Lancashire. I am also the TES Maths Adviser, creator of mrbartonmaths.com, diagnosticquestions.com, and a bit of a maths geek. This is my podcast! Each episode, I interview someone from the world of education who interests and inspires me. They may be a maths teacher, such as Dan Meyer, Kris Boulton and Greg Ashman, or they may be from the wider world of education, such as Dylan Wiliam, Tom Bennett or Robert and Elizabeth Bjork. We cover issues such as lesson planning, problem solving, motivation, cognitive conflict, behaviour, memory, cognitive load theory, and a lot more. Be warned, these interviews are intended to be long and in depth, and are probably best digested across a few journeys to work or a few laps of the park with your dog. At lot of people are using them as CPD on the move! I hope you find my guests as interesting and inspiring as I do, and please help spread the word!You can contact me on Twitter, where I am @mrbartonmaths

Episódios

  • Dan Draper: Overlearning and conceptual leaps

    21/10/2021 Duração: 01h58min

    I have been a big fan of Dan’s work for a few years now. Along with last episode’s guest, Paul Rowlandson, Dan’s blog is one of the few I have notifications on for new posts because I find it essential reading. I love the way Dan reflects on his thinking from the ideas he tries out in his lessons. In this episode we discuss overlearning and conceptual leaps.

  • Paul Rowlandson: Getting mixed up with interleaving

    27/09/2021 Duração: 02h20min

    Paul is a maths teacher with a strong interest in research - so much so that he is now embarking upon a doctorate. He also holds the prestigious title of being Jo Morgan’s favourite maths blogger. In this conversation we discuss Paul's research into Interleaving - what is it, what is it not, and how can teachers harness its power?

  • Jo Morgan - depth and sequencing of the maths curriculum

    13/09/2021 Duração: 01h48min

    Jo is a legend of the maths teaching community. Her website, resourceaholic, is the go-to site for many teachers to find hand-picked, curated, top-quality resources and her Maths Gems series of posts are a must read for the latest mathematical gold out there. But as we all know, Jo is perhaps best known for her frequent appearances on this very podcast as my co host for several Conference Takeaways episodes as well as a some standalone episodes like this one.

  • Tom Harbour: engaging parents in their children's learning

    18/07/2021 Duração: 01h48min

    Tom is the CEO at Learning with Parents. Regular listeners might recall that I was lucky enough to attend Tom’s session at the virtual MA conference earlier this year, and I loved it. The session was all about how schools can engage parents in their children’s learning, and dispelled a few myths I held to be true. About 2 minutes into that session, I knew I wanted Tom on the show, and fortunately he was kind enough to accept my invitation.

  • Anne Watson and Kris Boulton in conversation

    16/04/2021 Duração: 03h17min

    Anne Watson and Kris Boulton join me to discuss their answers to 8 big questions in maths education: 1. What do you see as the goals of mathematics education? 2. What does it mean to “be fluent” in something in mathematics, and is fluency important? 3. What does it mean to “understand” something in mathematics, and is understanding important? 4. Please tell us about one of your favourite maths resources/activities. Why do you like it? 5. What do you see as the key similarities and differences between variation theory and Engelmann's approach to direct instruction? 6. Is the distinction between a “novice” and an “expert” a useful one? If not, why not? If so, how might we tell if a student has moved from being one to being the other? 7. What - if anything - are the most important things for teachers to know and implement from cognitive science research? 8. What is an example of something important that you have changed your mind about? You can access all the links on the episode show notes page here: http:

  • Michael Pershan: Teaching with worked examples - part 2

    19/03/2021 Duração: 01h59min

    In a follow-up to Part 1, US teacher, blogger and author Michael Pershan joins me to compare and contrast our two approaches to delivering worked examples. And then we discuss two fresh and fascinating areas: the role of mistakes in worked examples, and then the issue of using names in worked examples (either real or fictions). I loved this conversation.  For more information about today’s guest, plus links to the websites, resources and ideas they mention, please visit the show notes page: http://www.mrbartonmaths.com/blog/michael-pershan-teaching-with-worked-examples-part-2/
