I have been off the radar with my blog in recent months, but alas, I have returned from my hibernation! :P
I received a few emails asking where photos of my previous displays have disappeared to!
Let me explain!
Unfortunately, I had to remove previous posts and photos as I have now moved to new teaching position in a new school.
However, if there were any posts/displays which you were interested in, feel free to give me an email or comment and I will gladly share any details with you!
In the meantime watch out for new displays coming soon. Also, I often post on my class twitter account http://www.twitter.com/misswardsclass.
In terms of the blog itself, this year I'm going to be taking a slightly different approach. While I will still post classroom displays, I hope to also broaden the nature of the blog to demonstrate my use of active, discovery learning within my daily teaching practice.
Finally, I hope to give readers some insight into some of the work I am currently undertaking as part the Masters in Education and Training Management (e-learning strand) in Dublin City University.
This year as part of my final year thesis I hope to conduct some work in the area of mathematics and inquiry based learning. This is an active, discovery based approach to teaching mathematics which I will be blogging about in the distant future. As I go through my journey, I hope that it may give teachers (particularly senior teachers) some ideas for their maths lessons.
Watch this space!
Enjoy the final week of Term 1 (where has the time gone!) and Happy Halloween!
