Thursday I had the honor of providing the opening keynote for the AMATYC Conference in Denver, “Learning Math is Not a Spectator Sport.” I expect the video of the talk will be available to share next week, and rather than provide the slides (124 mostly stick-figure drawings), I’ll point you to some resources that will likely give you the information you’re looking for between now and when the full presentation becomes available.
We covered three main themes:
- Interaction & Impasse (this post)
- Challenge & Curiosity
- Durable Learning
I’ll provide resources for each of these categories, starting with Interaction and Impasse, in this post.
Interaction and Impasse
- Slides that show Classroom Interaction Maps
- Reference: Student participation in mathematics lessons taught by seven successful community college instructors
- Reference: Bloom 2-sigma Problem: The Search for Methods of Group Instruction as Effective as One-to-one Tutoring
- Reference: Learning from Human Tutoring
- Video Explanation: Learning from Human Tutoring
- Reference: Why do only some events cause learning during human tutoring?
- Elite Classroom Designs (Engaged Learning Interactive Technology Environments)
- Speed Rounds (a way to do group work where all groups have an incentive to participate)
- Change the Classroom, Change the Learning
- The 1-9-90 Rule and Observations of a Classroom Experience
