Kent and Medway Teacher Network

Starting the New Academic Year

Overview

The Kent and Medway Teacher Network is a composite of the 3 teacher networks which normally run in our region and which are expected to return in September 2020. Because it runs in an online classroom, it negates the gegraphical challenges that we would normally encounter with network meetings and allows itself tp be opened up to the whole region. It is an AMSP funded project, allowing teachers of maths to meet, collaborate and to share best practice during this period when our schools are closed.

Content

This will be a discussion based meeting and a chance to catch up with colleagues and discuss some of the following. Please let me know if there are particular issues you'd like me to include in the discussion.

  • Any changes made to the curriculum and teaching in your Maths departments in response to the ‘new normal’
  • OFQUAL changes to the Summer 2021 public examinations or not
  • Any resources that might be useful for the coming year
  • Topics/needs for future Network meetings

Materials and Equipment

The AMSP uses Big Blue Button (BBB), which is an online conferencing system that allows participants to collaborate in real time.

You are advised to use a headset or headphones with an inline microphone to provide the best sound quality and to prevent audio issues for other users. A laptop with a built-in webcam and microphone may be sufficient if you’re in a quiet area but please take the time to check this before the session. BBB is designed to be used on a variety of platforms but you will get the best experience via a desktop or laptop computer, running either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as the browser.

Note: Internet Explorer and Edge are not suitable currently.

Other Information

Sadly, I won’t be able to provide refreshments in the normal way, but I hope that you’ll be able to join us with your own tea/coffee and cake/biscuits! 

Due to the nature of the online classroom, places are strictly limited.  Please complete the booking form on the flyer to request a place.
