Comments from users about the email list community
"This list is an efficient way of connecting instantly with the mathematical teaching and learning community around Australia, resulting in a faster, better informed and more involved mathematical community."
"As a teacher living in a regional, remote community, the AAMT list community gives me a feeling of being professionally connected with other kindred spirits."
"The AAMT list is a brilliant resource for Australian teachers - it enables teachers young and old to tap into a wealth of knowledge and experience and receive instantaneous feedback - not just from within all Australian states but also from member teachers from other countries. The depth and breadth of knowledge of those 'lurking on the list' is incredible."
"As a new teacher, I have found it the fastest way to access a wide pool of ideas and resources from people who have, between them, hundreds (thousands?) of years of teaching experience. The generosity is amazing - colleagues are only too willing to share ideas and materials. And very welcoming."
"This list is perhaps the only way to have lively conversation with such a broad variety of Maths teacher and other Maths education professionals across Australia."
"I have been on (and am on) many discussion lists over the past ten years. Reading (and even better - contributing to) a discussion list is the best (and cheapest!) form of professional development available. An effective discussion list has a very positive tone - even new members feel safe in posting a question or response. On this criterion, the AAMT list community scores 10 out of 10!"
"The AAMT listserv is one of the most professional, generous, and helpful I have known in a decade of on-line collegial sharing.
The many AAMT listserv "voices" I have come to know, and rely on, are like colleagues in the room next-door, friendly, interested, and always eager to answer questions and offer sound advice from their wide personal experience.
Sometimes the speed of assistance, and the brilliance of the insight, or advice, is breath-taking.
Real researchers, real teachers, sharing real classroom experiences and life-times of passionate attention to mathematics education - you can't get better than that!
Simply an invaluable resource for my own work in mathematics education!"
