This summer, our campus hosted over 200 math teachers from all over the country for Twitter Math Camp, a four-day conference focusing on K-12 math education. TMathC is a conference run by teachers, for teachers. The participants, speakers and organizers communicate year round via Twitter, blogs and other social media. This four-day conference in July is a chance for everyone to get together for face to face interactions.
Coordinated by Dave Sabol '99, the sessions and keynotes during the conference focused on technology, pedagogy, social justice, and content in the math classroom. Eight Saint Ignatius High School faculty participated with two presenting. Cindy Reagan presented a session on using metacognitive journaling in math classes, and Sabol presented on incorporating maps into math classes.
The participants were extremely complimentary of the school's staff and facilities and were pleasantly surprised at Cleveland as a host city. Participants flooded the streets of Ohio City and frequented our local coffee shops and lunch spots.
Several departments on campus went above and beyond to make the conference successful. Thanks to Campus Operations for managing all the set up and cleaning of the campus, Technology for assisting with countless tech hiccups, and Campus Security for keeping an eye on everything.
