"Waking Up My Math Class!" by John Herbert
John Herbert was our second presenter at Ignite Parents and he shared with us, "Waking up my Math Class!"
John Herbert is a secondary math teacher at South Huron District High School. John started teaching math in the early 90s, and has enjoyed integrating his love of math with his passion for technology. As an early adopter of using computer assisted software in his classes, to using graphing calculators so students can see what is really happening, John has always been “that math teacher” in the school. Now, John is using the social tools of twitter to connect to other teachers, facebook to connect with students and parents, and many, many different online tools to not only get kids enjoying math, but deepening their understanding at the same time. The only concern for John is, during his presentation – can he ask questions?
