At Mathsconf4 yesterday I went to a talk given by Craig Jeavons, in which he reminded me of many of the great resources American teachers are churning out.
During the talk, Craig mentioned the MathTwitterBlogosphere – essentially a directory of all of the ‘math’ teachers from the US who are actively involved in the world of online professional development, through twitter and blogging.
He wondered why we don’t have anything similar in the UK. I wondered that too. At least, I don’t think there’s anything like this out there yet… So anyone who’s interested, let’s see if we can start to build one! Nothing as fancy as that website to start with; I think it would just be useful to have a list of names and twitter handles of maths teachers on twitter, as a start.
Later, I reckon something like this would be particularly useful for a country as geographically small as the UK:
So, if you’re keen to get involed, fill in the form below (we can add in more information later), and then let’s take it from there!
As the directory expands, it can be accessed by anyone from here.
