    Stemiverse 0059 – Dr. Chris Matthews on teaching mathematics through dance & story

    In this episode, Dr. Peter Dalmaris talks with Dr. Chris Matthews. Dr. Chris Matthews, a Noonuccal man, is passionate about connecting culture and mathematics, having developed a method of teaching maths to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students through dance and story. He teaches students to bring maths to life by crafting stories in which characters take actions that add, subtract, or divide. As Chair of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mathematics Alliance (ATSIMA), Dr. Matthews also organizes camps and conferences designed to promote Indigenous participation in STEM and to support mathematics outcomes for Indigenous students. Dr. Matthews highlights the importance of engaging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in mathematics to ensure they are prepared for life beyond school. “Maths is one of those subjects that is a gatekeeper to jobs, it gives access to other opportunities in life, and it’s important for every student,” said Dr. Matthews.

    Stemiverse 0058 – Kieran Nolan talks about the Blockchain in education, RocketShoes

    Stemiverse 0058 – Kieran Nolan talks about the Blockchain in education, RocketShoes

    In this episode, Dr. Peter Dalmaris catches up with Kieran Nolan.
    This is Kieran’s second appearance on Stemiverse.
    Kieran is an Educational Technologist based in Melbourne, Australia.
    He’s an International Speaker, CoderDojo Mentor, Blockchain Expert, and Business Development Executive.
    Kieran is driven by innovation, disruption, and lifelong learning. These drivers empower him to play his part in revolutionizing the EduTech space as we know it.
    Kieran is an Educational Technologist at Wooranna Park Primary School, where his strategic leadership has led the school to launching a 24/7 International Virtual Learning Environment in Minecraft, Victoria’s first CoderDojo, Australia’s first Immersive Education Club, the world’s youngest Cisco class, and the very first School on the Blockchain.
    Kieran is also a Co-Founder & Business Development Executive of RocketShoes.io which is an educational platform designed for a learner-centric approach and providing powerful tools to manage content in a decentralized way. Learners will be able to produce and keep track of their own learning materials, including assignments, notes, and digital assets. Organizations can manage large amounts of content in a way that is not possible with today’s systems, allowing for radically new functionality, and deep integration with the Blockchain.
    This is Kieran’s second appearance on Stemiverse. The first time around, back in episode 25 we discussed the school in the Cloud and how the blockchain influences education, as well as cryptocurrencies and its social and educational implications. In this second interview, Kieran talks about RocketShoes, the Interplanetary File System, Nem.Education and we catch up with some exciting technology news.
    For the first time for Stemiverse, this interview comes in audio and video! If you want to watch me and Kieran conducting the interview, and also see the various web resources that we were looking at during the recording, please go to the episode page.
    This is Stemiverse Podcast episode 58.
