Spring into TEAMP DAY
MONDAY 10th OCTOBER, 2016
Mathematical Association of Victoria
61 Blyth Street, Brunswick,
9:00am to 3:30pm
The Mathematical Association of Victoria held Spring into TEAMP Day, an exciting professional face-to face and online learning experience for primary teachers and early years teachers.
The full day professional learning was conducted from the the Mathematical Association of Victoria Professional Learning Centre, however access was available locally, nationally or from anywhere around the world. Online teachers were able to attend one or more sessions during the day through Adobe Connect's video-conferencing platform. Teachers attedned as individuals and in groups professional learning on the day.

TEAMP Day Sessions
Keynote: Using Inquiry to Engage All Learners
Webinar | Resources
Dr Judy Harnett has a particular passion for getting students thinking
about maths, understanding the concepts behind the
skills and using maths in authentic, purposeful ways.
Judy believes this can be done effectively through the use
of inquiry as a pedagogy and through the use of computation
strategies rather than traditional written algorithms. Judy currently works as an
independent mathematics education consultant and part-time as an associate
researcher on the YuMi Deadly Maths team (QUT) working to empower teachers
to assist disadvantaged students to achieve with mathematics.

Crystal Kirch is a Digital Learning Coach and flipped classroom
expert who is passionate about helping teachers find the most
effective uses of technology to transform teaching and
learning. Crystal has trained teachers on flipped learning and
technology integration since 2011, and published Flipping with Kirch: The Ups and
Downs from Inside my Flipped Classroom in 2016. "The flipped classroom is a
transformational pedagogical strategy that utilizes technology and teacher-created
video instruction to free up classroom time for more differentiated support and a
deeper learning experience for all students.
We can count on more than Frank: Using
picture books to engage students in
Dr Tracey Muir and Dr Sharyn Livy identify many of the reasons for using picture books in the classroom to develop students’ mathematical interest and understanding. We have found that picture books that are not explicitly mathematical in nature are particularly useful for engaging students in stimulating conversation about potential mathematical content. We will share some of our favourite examples of these and demonstrate how mathematical concepts and activities can be developed from the books. All participants will leave the session with lots of practical ways to incorporate picture books into mathematics.
Targeted teaching to challenge and engage
highly able students in your classroom
Andea Blake believes students who are highly able in Literacy and Numeracy have specific needs as they differ from average students in the ways they think and learn. How can teachers recognise their characteristics and respond with appropriately challenging, rigorous learning tasks? This practical session explores some ways to match the traits of advanced learners with high-quality differentiation strategies and resources. Teachers can investigate these strategies further to adapt existing tasks or design new curriculum with the depth, complexity and variety that is vital to ensure growth and stimulation for highly able students in the mixed-ability classroom. The strategies offer flexibility in terms of low or high preparation requirements, so whatever your level of differentiation expertise you will find something of value!
Developing Multiliteracies through ACMI Initiatives
Anna Kuchl eads a committed, inspiring team of educators, who enjoy finding new and effective ways to engage with learners. She encourages teachers from early years, primary, secondary and tertiary settings to collaborate with the ACMI Education team to help learners become critical and creative thinkers equipped with flexible and dynamic screen and digital literacy skills. Explore multimodal literacy, moving image and the arts and intersections with the world your students will engage with now and in the future.

Matthew Magain used to get in trouble for doodling in class. But written notes are boring to look at—and they're boring to create in the first place. Sketchnoting, or visual note-taking, is a technique for capturing content using a combination of words and pictures. The end result is a more compelling reference, for you and for anyone you share it with, that can lead to improved retention and recall. In this hands-on session I'll share a range of tips for becoming better at sketching, so that you and your class can make taking notes fun again. No drawing skill required—if you've always thought "I can't draw!” then this session is for you!
Zero is my hero
Dr Angela Rogers developed the App "Zero Our Hero" after completing my PhD in Mathematics Education. I am passionate about using my knowledge to help improve the teaching and learning of place value across the world.
