Steve Robert, Openzone @ The Word
This session will introduce a new, easy and 21st century supplementary approach to teaching and learning Maths using Scratch +Ready-Steady-Code (RSC). This actively encourages learners to engage with a wide range of mathematical topics utilising Scratch in an exciting and purposeful way which will empower teachers to embrace technology through Maths.
Relevant Key Stages: KS2, KS3
Steve Robert's biography
Having graduated from Manchester University with a Classics degree, I went on to take my PGCE and begin my teaching career in Primary Schools in South Tyneside where I have worked ever since. In 2003 I became an E-learning adviser and then went on to also become the Primary Maths adviser working in school improvement. My dual role means I get to work with teachers and pupils alike. I luckily get to teach the computing curriculum to the schools that visit us at OpenZone@TheWord and I also get to advise and train teachers with all things maths and e-learning.
I am an Apple Teacher, NCETM PD Lead, CEOP Ambassador and Numicon Trainer.
