I’m a big fan of virtual professional development, and this week the folks at ORIGO Education are hosting a free math webinar for educators. Titled “What’s the Problem? Finding the Right Math Problem to Challenge Students,” you can join in on this live event led by Sara Delano Moore. She is a nationally renowned educator, speaker, and ORIGO manager.
This webinar is the first course in a two-part series and is all about finding the right balance when challenging students with new math problems. The webinar host, Sara Delano Moore is a contributing author to Visible Learning for Mathematics, and in this session, she will share strategies for how to choose tasks of the right difficulty and complexity based on both students’ needs and classroom dynamics. It will include examples of the phases of learning using John Hattie’s Visible Learning research.
Free Math Webinar
Registration is now open for both webinars, including the first one in the series, Finding the Right Math Problem to Challenge Students scheduled for Wednesday, January 17, 2018, at 4 PM EST.

The second part of this webinar series will take place on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, at 4 PM EST. Sara Delano Moore will also host this session titled, Creating a Supportive Environment for Problem Solving in the Math Classroom.
