    Dan Draper: Overlearning and conceptual leaps

    Dan Draper: Overlearning and conceptual leaps

    I have been a big fan of Dan’s work for a few years now. Along with last episode’s guest, Paul Rowlandson, Dan’s blog is one of the few I have notifications on for new posts because I find it essential reading. I love the way Dan reflects on his thinking from the ideas he tries out in his lessons. In this episode we discuss overlearning and conceptual leaps.

    Paul Rowlandson: Getting mixed up with interleaving

    Paul Rowlandson: Getting mixed up with interleaving

    Paul is a maths teacher with a strong interest in research - so much so that he is now embarking upon a doctorate. He also holds the prestigious title of being Jo Morgan’s favourite maths blogger. In this conversation we discuss Paul's research into Interleaving - what is it, what is it not, and how can teachers harness its power?

    Jo Morgan - depth and sequencing of the maths curriculum

    Jo Morgan - depth and sequencing of the maths curriculum

    Jo is a legend of the maths teaching community. Her website, resourceaholic, is the go-to site for many teachers to find hand-picked, curated, top-quality resources and her Maths Gems series of posts are a must read for the latest mathematical gold out there. But as we all know, Jo is perhaps best known for her frequent appearances on this very podcast as my co host for several Conference Takeaways episodes as well as a some standalone episodes like this one.

    Tom Harbour: engaging parents in their children's learning

    Tom Harbour: engaging parents in their children's learning

    Tom is the CEO at Learning with Parents. Regular listeners might recall that I was lucky enough to attend Tom’s session at the virtual MA conference earlier this year, and I loved it. The session was all about how schools can engage parents in their children’s learning, and dispelled a few myths I held to be true. About 2 minutes into that session, I knew I wanted Tom on the show, and fortunately he was kind enough to accept my invitation.

I listened to this podcast while climbing Striding Edge!

Thoroughly enjoy the podcast, am not a teacher yet. But very useful, found loads of resources and tips to teach my kids at home. Yep, it calmed my nerve when I was climbing Striding Edge.

Brilliant CPD!

This year, I have listened to almost every episode during my drive to/from school and it has opened up a world of knowledge and practical tips for the classroom. I’m a relatively new teacher but someone who has switched careers and Mr Barton has been so helpful in making me begin to think like a teacher rather than a novice. Thank you!
