Calls to Action
Sometimes social media and blogging can feel like an echo chamber of cyclical thinking and limited action. For those who feel this way the mini-conference at NCTM Boston, ShadowCon15, is here to help!
ShadowCon15 introduced us to the idea of a social media-related, pedagogical call to action. Click on the link above to find out more about Tracy Zager, Kristin Gray, Michael Pershan, Laila Nur, Christopher Danielson, and Elham Kazemi and their calls to action from ShawdowCon15.
Another call to action that went out recently was from Justin Lanier during his Global Math Department conference on May 12th. In response to Justin’s call Heather Kohn, Dylan Kane, and I responded to Justin’s call with these tweets and blog posts: Heather’s, Dylan’s with teachers and students, and mine.
Tracy Zager also recently reminded us all that a call to action is not a spectator sport!
Here are some other blog post responses to the ShadowCon15 calls to action:
If you are also tired of just talking, tweeting, discussing, debating, or chit-chatting about how to make math education in this country a little bit better, use a call to action to focus on the change you want to see in your teaching practice next school year.
