How I got here from there...
What does it feel like to step into my classroom?

Degree in Computer Science and Mathematics
Trained wilderness guide
Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education
Further study in mathematics
Studied electrical engineering and circuit design
Voracious reader of fiction and informational texts
"open-sourced" my own interests
Daily Math Problem
A problem aligned with the curriculum
Given at the start of class every day.
Small Group Work
Grade 7 Math
Daily Math Problem
Small group work
One-to-many, one-to-few, one-to-one
Learning happens for everybody all the time.
Mistakes are necessary.
It is safe to question, to critique, to reflect.
I do not own the rights to information.
I am not smarter than my students,
I'm just a talented information aggregator.
Assessment for learning
Assessment using the flubaroo script
Feedback on student comprehension level.
Students have a list of tasks to accomplish each day.
Self-directed, collaborative, and/or independent.
Students will take charge of their own learning.
Students will be self-starters in their math education.
Formative evaluation through the Daily Math Problem
Khan Academy coaching reports
Students co-learning to solidify understanding of concepts, through collaboration on given tasks.
Develop a more thorough understanding through discussion of complex concepts.
Circulation through the class
Monitor discussion "on the sly"
Observe work done on the board, on the smart board, on paper, ...
Feedback from students about their level of comprehension through DMP & small group work
Target specific areas of learning through differentiation
Have students build support networks for one another
Work with students until they "get" it
Have student explain their learning to ensure understanding
"That tall guy in the tie."
It's about more than just

Google Apps Script
to support the pedagogy
to facilitate learning and collaboration
to optimize teacher time
to provide different pathways for learning
Students create an instructional video using WeVideo, and overlay it on a physical representation of the problem using Aurasma.
Students contribute to and build a problem & solution bank, shared with the entire class using a Google Drive folder.
Students collaborate in person and through digital communication to co-construct knowledge.
Problems can (and do) appear in the Daily Math
Tasks start as concrete learning goals
As the class progresses up the SAMR model, tasks become more abstract, collaborative and unstructured.
