On a Thinking Classroom - Reflections after 8 years of Implementation

About This Webinar

After spiraling courses for 5 years, I was lucky enough to hear Peter Liljedahl speak about Building Thinking Classrooms. With the energy of a young teenager I immediately implemented his ideas and never looked back. During this hour we will share the best of the practices in a thinking classroom and reflect on next steps.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts On a Thinking Classroom - Reflections after 8 years of Implementation
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
