SmartBoard interactive whiteboard professional development resources for mathematics
The Mathematical Association has worked with Steljes plc to develop a half-day professional development course is designed to help teachers use the power and functionality of the SMART Board interactive whiteboard (IWB) to enhance teaching and learning in mathematics.
The course is strongly focused on subject specific resources and issues. Teachers will be given the opportunity to work with and adapt resources that have been tried, tested and found specifically helpful to teachers and learners of mathematics.
The Mathematical Association has also developed a series of Smart NoteBook resources and accompanying lesson plans, all of which can be freely downloaded from the Smart Exchange website.
National Professional Development Standard
The purpose of this mathematics-specific CPD Standard is to help teachers of mathematics at all levels, and their institutions, to access information about the CPD provision on offer, its appropriateness and quality.
In order for the NCETM to be confident about promoting CPD, a clear set of criteria were developed describing the quality and the type of provision being proposed, which would be described in a CPD Standard.
The benefit to recipients of CPD is that they can have confidence in the providers they choose for their CPD, while for the CPD providers involved, a commitment to a CPD Standard can enable them to gain access to a wider audience of CPD participants via the NCETM portal.
