  • Go through the timetable for the remainder of the week and next week
  • An organisation existing largely through its rich-in-content website
  • A full description of the Professional Learning Framework can be found here: https://www.ncetm.org.uk/personal-learning/framework This diagram is intended to indicate how various kinds of activities (not just findings classroom resources) can contribute to professional learning and how the different elements can be connected, linked and referenced through your own personal learning space. The PLS allows each teacher to collect together and organise a bank of personalised PD resources, record their own reflections, and build up evidence of their learning over time
  • This slide shows certain key features and resources that can be found on the home page. Don’t forget to register with NCETM – it’s free and very quick to do! - to get the full benefit of the web-site including use of your personal learning space; For anything you can’t find immediately, use either the basic search or the more filtered search The new National Curriculum button contains loads of information and resources including videos of classroom practice and will be regularly updated; The ‘Essentials’ package is a good way of quickly finding resources linked to a particular theme or interest.
  • This slide give a bit more of a flavour of how the framework headings are used to structure content and shows you where you can find some of our key resources. Of particular note is the microsite especially for students entitled ‘Mathematics Resources for Teachers in Training’ . One element of this is the ‘Reflective activities for ITE students’ https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/31989 . There are three sets of activities, ideally to be explored as part of a small group – maybe with a friend on their course or with a mentor or colleague during teaching practice:   a set of reflective activities exploring issues that you might face during your course; a set of three articles looking at three of the big ideas in mathematics including some reflective discussion for you and some ideas to try in your classroom; a set of videos of newly qualified teachers’ reflections after half a term in their first post. There is also a resource for ITE tutors which you might find helpful at https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/32569 You may also wish to mention other categories not highlighted on the slide: The ‘News’ section for up to date educational news; The ‘Courses and Networks’ section where you can search for current courses, networks and events including details of subject association membership; The ‘Community’ section where you can join a variety of online communities where teachers are discussing issues, asking questions and sharing resources. It is also possible to set up your own community specifically for a named group (further details here - https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/601) Make sure you change the subscription on any community you join; so that you are emailed when something new is posted or added to the community!
  • Introduction to the NCETM portal The purpose of this session is three-fold: 1) to register you as members of the National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics ( http://www.ncetm.org.uk ); 2) to introduce you to some of the features of the NCETM portal; 3) to introduce you to the mathematics content knowledge self-evaluation tool in the PLS (personal learning space). As an outcome of the session, you are expected to: 1) take a hard copy of your completed mathematics content knowledge snapshots for KS3, KS4, KS5(AS) and KS5(A2) to your tutorial in week 5 for discussion with your tutor; 2) share a summary snapshot of your completed mathematics content knowledge snapshots FOR KS3 ONLY with Julie-Ann at username jedwards (Group A) or Ian at username ICampton (Group B); 3) familiarise yourself with the NCETM portal, using the coloured tabs along the top, to follow your particular mathematical/teaching interests. In the short term, make sure you explore, in particular, Mathemapedia, and the functions of the Personal Learning Space, using the 'My Favourites' and 'Self-Evaluation' tools; 4) find out what there is on the NCETM portal about a) Gattegno and b) the empty number line in preparation for the session on Developing calculation skills.  For future use, consider using: 1) the 'Career Portfolio' tool to track professional development, such as your involvement in INSET days in your placement schools; 2) the 'My Files and Folders' tool to store electronic copies of your phase 2 tasks, or your developing assignments; 3) the 'Learning Journal' tool, if this is a comfortable way to record your thoughts/feelings about your professional development.

    9. 9. The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) aims to ensure all teachers of mathematics have access to high quality continuing professional development (CPD). It does this by working to develop a sustainable national provision of mathematics CPD, and by encouraging teachers of mathematics to work collaboratively to improve their practice. The NCETM is a consortium managed by Tribal Education in partnership with Myscience, Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI), and the Institute of Education, University of London (IOE); it is funded by the Department for Education (DfE).
    10. 10. The NCETM aims to: • raise standards by supporting high quality mathematics-specific CPD, so that the mathematical potential of learners can be fully realised • support all schools, organisations and individuals with a CPD role, in collaborating with teachers to improve mathematics teaching and learning • raise the professional status of all those engaged in the teaching of mathematics. The support and guidance provided by the NCETM is underpinned by the three elements of effective teaching identified by Ofsted and ACME: • strong subject knowledge • understanding of the ways in which pupils learn mathematics • skills and confidence in using subject knowledge and understanding
