Description

Join us as we share and discuss a framework for supporting mathematics teachers’ evaluation of digital instructional materials (DIMs). In a research study, K-8 teachers considered how technology integrates with research-based practices for teaching mathematics and generated indicators to guide the evaluation and selection of DIMs. The resulting framework suggested the potential for positive transformations of effective mathematics teaching practices through technology integration. During the webinar we will discuss implications for mathematics teacher educators and possible uses of the framework with preservice and inservice teachers, including the potential to support AMTE Standards C.1 Mathematics Concepts, Practices, and Curriculum; and C.2 Pedagogical Knowledge and Practices for Teaching Mathematics.

Description

According to Paul Mahieu, Senior Vice President of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, the mode for teacher service has dropped from 15.2 years in 1987 to one year in 2014. As a nation, we are facing a significant teacher shortage as a result of an improving economy, allowing for school districts across the country to reduce class sizes and hire more teachers. With regard to subject areas, mathematics teachers are particularly in demand. We invite you to join us for a one-hour webinar which investigates mathematics teacher recruitment and retention, most specifically from the perspective of higher education teacher preparation programs and induction.

Description

Mathematics teacher educators often feel challenged when they discuss equity-related topics with pre-service and in-service teachers. To address this challenge, the AMTE Board of Directors chose equity and mathematics teacher education as the focus of the first book in the AMTE Professional Book series. The book, Cases for Teacher Educators: Facilitating Conversations about Inequities in Mathematics Classrooms, is a collection of cases centered on equity as a vehicle to prepare MTEs to discuss inequities in their mathematics methods, content, and professional development courses. Each chapter includes a case accompanied by three reflective commentaries. In this webinar we will provide an overview of the book through a sample of some of the dilemmas faced by the case authors, and the strategies offered by the authors and commentators for creating inclusive and equitable mathematics classrooms. Attendees will also have an opportunity to read abbreviated versions of two chapters and to share their thoughts.
