This past weekend, I was honored to join 40 other new Desmos Fellows in San Francisco for a weekend to talk about access & equity, classroom practice, instructional coaching, math history, the future of math education, lesson study & we even squeezed in time to talk desmos.com and their online platform for visualizing math concepts!
The welcoming crew at Desmos organized a great weekend with a group of passionate and skilled teachers from around the US and Canada. Every conversation all weekend was a gold mine of information.
Our time at Desmos HQ included several break-out sessions. In these flexible work times, we had conversations about teaching practice, increasing student agency, and we explored the Desmos platform.
Desmos CEO, Eli Luberoff talked with us about the growth of Desmos and showed off the new statistics features. Michael Fenton modeled a lesson and was so open with us as we engaged in a debrief about the lesson.
