Hello! My name is Craig Barton and I am a secondary school maths teacher, the TES Maths Adviser, creator of mrbartonmaths.com, diagnosticquestions.com, the author of "How I wish I'd taught maths", and a bit of a maths geek. This is my podcast!

Each episode, I interview someone from the world of education who interests and inspires me. They may be a maths teacher, such as Dan Meyer, Kris Boulton and Greg Ashman, or they may be from the wider world of education, such as Dylan Wiliam, Tom Bennett or Robert and Elizabeth Bjork. We cover issues such as lesson planning, problem solving, motivation, cognitive conflict, behaviour, memory, cognitive load theory, and a lot more.

Be warned, these interviews are intended to be long and in depth, and are probably best digested across a few journeys to work or a few laps of the park with your dog. At lot of people are using them as CPD on the move! I hope you find my guests as interesting and inspiring as I do, and please help spread the word!

Fantastic

I find these a great form of CPD as I can stick my headphones in and listen when I’m taking care of my son during lockdown. Usually I would listen during my long commute to work. So good when you need to multi-task.

Lots to take away as an English teacher

I just love this podcast. I discovered it a while back but have been catching up with many more episodes during lockdown. Although I am not a maths teacher (fortunately for my students), there are a large number of episodes that have a lot to offer any teacher. I wish I could find an similarly excellent English podcast to be able to benefit from the equivalent in depth topic episodes! The guests have a wide range of experience and perspectives. The topics covered are hugely varied. Ultimately, Craig Barton’s enthusiasm, dedication and fantastic questioning make it.

This podcast has changed my life!

I now look forward to my drive to work because I get an opportunity to listen to more insight from Mr Barton and whoever he is interviewing! It inspires me for the day ahead and is changing the way that I teach. Even though the episodes are long, the way that they are broken up with questions makes them easy to listen to. I started listening because of the recent Tom Sherrington episode and have now I’ve recommended it to all of my colleagues (and I’m a science teacher!). Thank you and keep up the great work!
