*Teaching & Learning Through Problem-Solving (Grades 4-6)
“The most effective method for developing and consolidating students’ understanding of mathematical concepts …is teaching through problem-solving.” This two-day session will go beyond the Problem-of-the-Week to focus on how problem-solving can be an integral ingredient in your mathematics program. It will help teachers and students to understand and connect the big ideas in mathematics, and focus on improving students’ communication of their mathematical understanding. Participants are asked to bring a copy of
A Guide to Effective Instruction in Mathematics, K-6
Volume 2: Problem-Solving and Communication.

Key focus areas include:
-what a high quality program looks like, feels like, sounds like
-creating a rich, differentiated math environment, including manipulatives and technology
-three-part problem solving lessons
-instruction and assessment before, during, and after.

*ICT Collaborative Technology Training – parts 1 & 2 (provided by Virtual GrandE Project)
Part 1: Participants will be exposed to VIDEO-CONFERENCING, SKYPE, and ADOBE CONNECT tools with the goal of considering their viability for safe use within daily teaching and learning practice. Participants will also be exposed to a number of video clips and real-time video connections during the session.
Part 2: Prerequisite: Completion of Part 1. Participants will further examine our current ICT tools with the intent of framing their use within the classroom. The links between ICT tool usage and student safety, differentiated learning strategies, as well as student engagement strategies will be explored.
While both of these identical sessions are open to all GEDSB teachers, part 1 of the training should be accomplished prior to beginning PART 2 of instruction. Teachers can sign up for these two training modules separately or together on eCENTRE, as desired.
