Are you willing to share your ideas about how to support children’s maths learning?
Maths4All will host an online TeachMeet on Thursday 15th October from 6 o’clock.
A TeachMeet is an organised but informal meeting for practitioners and teachers to share good practice, practical innovations and personal insights. Teachers can choose to listen or to present. Presentations should be for 3 minutes or 6 minutes on a topic of your choice.
We will begin the evening with two sessions of invited speakers from preschool, primary and secondary settings (details below). These two sessions will both run at the same time 6pm – 7pm. Please register using the link below if you are interested in attending.
Other educator presentations will take place between 7pm and 8pm. If you wish to present during this time slot please register using the link below. We will update this page with details of these presentations as they become available.
