Videos have the power to bring concepts to life so I’m super excited about the new resources from ORIGO Education. They just launched Stepping Stones 2.0, a comprehensive math program for students in kindergarten through sixth grade. This program uses a range of instructional tools including exemplar videos. It combines print and digital media to bring resources to the hands of students.
Video Math Program
The team at ORIGO Education just released Stepping Stones 2.0: Comprehensive Mathematics at the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM) and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) annual conference this week. It is designed to help students build conceptual understanding through videos and discussions. ORIGO Education’s Vimeo channel hosts a bunch of example videos like the one featured below.
Stepping Stones 2.0 includes a new tool called SlateCast. It lets teachers project a resource onto the class whiteboard. All it takes is a finger swipe across their tablet or a click on their screen. This makes it easier to emphasize or reteach a concept when you identify that a student, group of students, or the whole class needs extra support. Teachers can decide how to use these extra enhancements to meet the needs of their students. Stepping Stones 2.0 also includes MathEd professional learning videos. You’ll also have access to the ORIGO 1 Minute Mathematics video library. This is also where you’ll find the point-of-use implementation classroom video exemplars mentioned above.
When you check out Stepping Stones 2.0 you’ll find lots of teacher supports including exemplar classroom videos like the examples here. The team at ORIGO Education is also hosting a free webinar later this month that will cover best practices for teaching mathematics and highlight more of their videos.
