Getting the right team- A whole School culture for mathematics and numeracy

The first session will communicate the key factors and pre requisites common to schools successfully implementing elements of the initiative. This session has been designed for  school leaders and Mathematics HODs wanting to  prioritise numeracy and problem solving.
• Identification and remediation of common resistors
• Strategies for selecting a core key team and setting an agenda
• Valid and rigorous data professional learning communities

The right  pedagogies- Implementing curriculum intent requires a repertoire of pedagogies

Effective teaching of mathematics and numeracy capabilities require a range of pedagogical practices . This workshop is for teachers and school leaders who want to look at the processes involved in creating a common language around effective delivery of all mathematical proficiencies. It will focus heavily around
• Valuing teacher voice and building supportive and trusting culture for all
• Enacting the growth mindset in all classrooms
• Designing protocols and routines to support coaching/mentoring and reflecting.

The right knowledge – A clear valuing and understanding of mathematical content, the connections and a working knowledge of the proficiency strands underpins successful teaching

This workshop targets teachers and school leaders and aims to upskill their assessment literacy by:
• Creating cognitive activation tasks that promote critical thinking in all students
• Ensuring a consistent and shared responsibility for numeracy transfer
• Differentiating tasks through a focus on the proficiency strands
• Classifying the different problem solving types.

The Presenter: Rob Proffitt-White
Rob has been a Principal Education Advisor for Mathematics in  Queensland’s Department of Education and Training for the past five years. His initiatives focus on aligning the right pedagogies, the right knowledge and the right team to successfully implement the intent of the Australian Curriculum. State primary and high schools commit to and invest in ongoing workshops that build teacher capability, norm effective delivery and upskill teachers in designing robust tasks and assessment tools.  Awards have been given to schools enacting and sustaining this initiative- Outstanding Presentation Award at ACER Excellence in Professional Practice Conference (May 2016) and Queensland State School of the Year (2015).

Rob has presented throughout the state of Queensland and by an online platform created to reach all teachers has recently reached 400 000 hits. The 'Building Culture and Capacity' initiative is flexible and under constant refinement as more schools take part and share best practice.
