Driving the use of data in teaching maths at schools came under the spotlight when education bigwigs got together in Grassy Park at the weekend.
Hosted by the Metro South Education District together with Green Shoots, education directors, circuit and curriculum managers, and principals attended the School Management: Data Informed Decisions Conference to encourage and support a maths online curriculum experience, and highlight the value data can add to teaching and learning.
Metro South Education District curriculum coordinator for Grades R to 9 Lorraine Bailey said 52 630 pupils were accessing the maths online curriculum, most of whom were in the south district.
“We have always had teachers using the chalkboard to teach maths. This programme boosts teaching, and gives teachers insight into what pupils are struggling with.”
