April 21, 2015

Register Here

With students coming to the classroom with a variety of backgrounds and skill levels in math, it can prove difficult to meet each of their needs. By combining high quality curriculum, instruction and digital tools, blended learning has the potential to meet each student’s individual needs at their own pace.

Attend this webinar to hear how the United Nations International School (UNIS) in New York City has transitioned to a 21st century math program by combining Cathy Fosnot’s Contexts for Learning Mathematics with adaptive technology to give students more autonomy and inspire them to take ownership of their math learning.

Topics will include:

  • Why and how the pedagogy of adaptive math technology is just as important as the pedagogy of classroom instruction
  • Logistics surrounding blended learning and parent involvement
  • How to equip teachers with professional development to best leverage technology

Scheduled speakers:
Cathy Fosnot
Professor Emeritus of Childhood Education
Founding Director of Mathematics in the City
City College of New York

Rebecca Murry
Math Coach
United Nations International School (N.Y.)

Barbara Kennedy
Assistant Principal
