Weird to Wired Mathematics Event 11 July 2014

We would be delighted if you could join us to try different ways of teaching maths using iPads - no experience necessary…we didn’t have any at all when we started!

This free event is to celebrate the success of the Weird to Wired project and will give you the opportunity to try it for yourself.

Following a successful European Commission bid, Bradford Council was awarded €45 000 to collaborate with the maths departments of Parkside School, Bradford College and an International School in Rotterdam to develop the use of new technologies in the mathematics classroom.

Feedback from all those involved in the project has been overwhelmingly positive.  Teachers have found this innovative approach to CPD invigorating, energising and exciting, while being pushed far outside of their comfort zones. Anecdotally, one teacher said that they had "not been so excited about teaching in years".

This free event will give you the opportunity to try different ways of using iPads to enhance learning in maths, at sessions delivered by teachers using them on a day -to-day basis.

While the interim independent evaluation showed that 84% of pupils found these lessons more fun, 80% found them more interesting and 55% felt that they understood these lessons more.

If you would like to attend please can I ask you to complete the attached reply slip, if you are unable to attend yourself, please feel free to offer this opportunity to a colleague in the maths department.

Please see attached flyer and agenda for further details.
