 Do Your Students Have Math Fact Fluency? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 24:35

In this episode of the TeacherCast Podcast, we welcome ASCD authors Jennifer Bay-Williams and Gina Kling on the program to discuss how students can easily pick up complex math concepts no matter what grade or ability level.  Please check out their new book available from ASCD Publications for more information on how you can provide quality math education to your students today! We wish to thank ASCD for helping to put this podcast together. In this episode, we discuss: * The phases children progress through as they master their facts What does fluency mean? How is it different from automaticity? How do games provide meaningful fact practice? What are the disadvantages of timed testing? What alternatives are there to timed testing? Why is it important for teachers and parents to understand the distinction between foundational facts and derived facts, and how should that impact instructional choices? How do we help families understand there are better ways to teach and assess facts? Follow our Podcast The TeacherCast Educational Broadcasting Network | @TeacherCast Follow our Host Jeff Bradbury | @JeffBradbury About our Guests Jennifer M. Bay-Williams Jennifer M. Bay-Williams is a mathematics teacher educator at the University of Louisville, Kentucky. She has written many articles and books related to K–12 mathematics education, including the popular Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally and the related three-book series, Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics. Bay-Williams is a national leader in mathematics education, having served as a member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Board of Directors, secretary and president of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE), lead writer for the Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics (AMTE, 2017), and a member of the TODOS: Mathematics for ALL Board of Directors. Bay-Williams taught elementary, middle, and high school students in Missouri and in Peru. She currently works in elementary classrooms in the Louisville area, helping teachers and students attain basic fact fluency while also developing strong mathematical identities. Gina Kling Gina Kling is fortunate to serve the mathematics education community in a variety of ways. Since 2011, she has worked as a curriculum developer for the elementary mathematics curriculum Everyday Mathematics (based at the University of Chicago) with a focus on grades K–3. Recently she served as the grade 1 lead author for the Everyday Mathematics 4 State Editions, the author of the Everyday Mathematics 4 Quick Looks Activity Book, and one of the authors of Everyday Mathematics for Parents: What You Need to Know to Help Your Child Succeed. Kling has taught elementary mathematics content and methods courses for the past 15 years at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. About Math Fact Fluency Mastering the basic facts for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division is an essential goal for all students. Most educators also agree that success at higher levels of math hinges on this fundamental skill. But what's the best way to get there? Are flash cards, drills, and timed tests the answer? If so, then why do students go into the upper elementary grades (and beyond) still counting on their fingers or experiencing math anxiety?

 Intel Tech Learning Lab | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 29:28

In this episode of the TeacherCast Podcast, we welcome Raysana Hurtado from Intel and California Educator, Kennan Scott, onto the program to discuss how Intel is transforming education by demonstrating what might be possible in not just the “classroom of the future”, but the “classroom of the present”. This year, Intel traveled across the country working with teachers and students to showcase their Intel's Tech Learning Lab, a custom-built, mobile truck that is filled with the most amazing virtual reality and augmented reality workstations to provide hands-on activities to teach students about coding and robotics. I'd like to thank Intel for joining me for this podcast. In this episode, we discuss: The future classroom is one that incorporates powerful technology and encourages creative approaches to learning, supporting education goals today and for tomorrow. Until now, classroom technology has been used as an add-on to existing instructional methods rather than as tools to improve or revolutionize instruction. Cutting-edge technology-based educational programs can emphasize deeper collaboration and engagement, versus student instruction on software that likely will be obsolete by the time they enter the workforce. Intel’s Tech Learning Lab is an example of how innovative teaching methods, like hands-on, dynamic learning, can help educators build the leaders of tomorrow by developing fundamental career skills like communication, collaboration, self-awareness, problem-solving, critical thinking and more. Some of the demo sessions on the tour include coding a drone to fly, hands-on lessons through virtual reality, introduction to artificial intelligence, design thinking skills, and more. Some of the truck’s VR experiences allowed participants to: Take a virtual field trip to the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. Develop virtual robots in the Robotics lab using RoboEngineers by Filament Games. Pilot a spaceship and travel the universe to explore the Milky Way galaxy via virtual reality by VictoryVR. Participate in virtual frog dissections, providing a safer, cost-effective, and more humane life science/anatomy lessons by VictoryVR. Program highlights to-date include: 2,150+ students, educators and general public have participated in immersive educational experiences through the Tech Learning Lab 1,020+ virtual tours of the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s “No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man” exhibit 700+ frogs virtually dissected through hands-on science lessons   Technologies in the campaign included Intel AI, PCs by Intel, Lenovo, Alienware, HP, virtual reality by Oculus and HTC Vive and more. Follow our Podcast The TeacherCast Educational Broadcasting Network | @TeacherCast Follow our Host Jeff Bradbury | @JeffBradbury About Intel Intel, a leader in the semiconductor industry, is shaping the data-centric future with computing and communications technology that is the foundation of the world’s innovations. The company’s engineering expertise is helping address the world’s greatest challenges as well as helping secure, power and connect billions of devices and the infrastructure of the smart, connected world – from the cloud to the network to the edge and everything in between.

 5 Ways To Change School Culture | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 29:48

In this episode of “Ask the Tech Coach,” Jeff and Nick discuss the importance of not only identifying what school districts want their student and staff cultures to be but how to set up a successful roadmap to help everyone achieve their goals each year.
