Coffee and Pi (Oxfordshire Teacher Network)How we Learn (with Natalie Vernon)
Coffee and Pi is a network meeting for teachers in Oxfordshire secondary schools as part of the Oxfordshire Mathematics Community. A post-16 group, funded by AMSP, meets half-termly, allowing teachers of Core Maths and of A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics to meet, collaborate and to share best practice. The programme is planned in response to teacher requests and is a mixture of presentations and discussions. Additionally, an 11-16 group meets half-termly.
Natalie Vernon is a well respected educator. She will be talking about what cognitive science can teach us about learning mathematics. This will include Memory, Cognitive Load, and Retrieval and Practise. I heard this talk back in January and thought it was brilliant. This is your chance to find out 'How we Learn'.
It will also be an opportunity to catch up with other teachers during these extraordinary times.
This meeting is suitable for any Maths teacher. The meeting is primarily for teachers from Oxfordshire or Buckinghamshire, but other teachers are welcome if there is space.

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.
In order to fully participate in the meeting please be willing to use your camera and microphone, although if this is impossible the chat option will be available.
We will be using a Desmos activity so you will need to be using a device which can support this.
