Podcasts (#notabookstudy participants)

  1. Mark Carbone and Asima Vezina explain the purpose of #notabookstudy, why we are choosing to learn this way, and how learners can interact with the various open platforms.
  2. Mark Carbone and Donna Fry look at how our work in open learning has led to this method of sharing math learning openly across the north and throughout Ontario.  How did we get here?
  3. Melissa Peddie joins us to share the work she is doing in Near North District School Board. This is an excellent podcast for teachers looking for a short description of the way Cathy Fosnot’s Landscape impacts our work in the classroom.
  4. Matthew Oldridge stops by for a quick chat about his #MathematizeThis idea on Medium Series. If you are looking for new ideas to support math thinking, this one will interest you!
  5. Melanie Courchesne expertly tells the story of how she and a classroom teacher made quick decisions around an unanticipated “happy surprise”, allowing them to explore thinking further.  It’s such a great opportunity to see into deprivatized classroom math practice.
