Thinking Mathematically From Minute One (Presentation 2019)

I LOVE WARM UPS!

Here’s a presentation I gave about them. It’s been fun sharing with people how I structure my warm ups. If I could, I think I would do all of them all day every day. I love them, the learners love them, and real math conversations happen because of them. I also wrote more about them in this post: Some Warm Up Files.

Fun Free Tech Tools that Aren’t Kahoot

I’m making a presentation at my district’s Teaching and Learning Conference in a couple of days and made this presentation. I don’t plan on actually showing much of this during the presentation – this is more for when people want to look back at it later.

I remember a few years ago when everyone and their mother was playing Kahoot in class and I hated it from the first time I played it. I felt like my learners were just guessing to try to get the fastest answer and I didn’t like that the questions all had to be projected…I also was already using Plickers and quickly found Quizizz so I never really saw a reason to go back to Kahoot. Maybe I’m missing something about it – please inform me if I am! It still seems to be something that a lot of people use at my school and I want to show teachers that there are other (better) free options. The free part is important because I know I’d never try anything new if I had to pay a cent.

I’m really excited about this stuff. I may have gone a bit overboard with how much there is when I only have 55 minutes to share, but it still should be a good time for everyone and hopefully people learn a bit.

Est-ce que quelqu’un utilise plus Kahoot?
