Hands-On Tools for Mathematics: Stop Learning Loss in its Tracks and Propel Students Forward

Presented by: Ann Elise Record

Tuesday, April 13 2021 at 03:45 pm CDT

See it. Move it. Grasp it. This is what students need to do in order to conceptualize mathematics and make the connections that will lead to deeper understanding. Manipulatives are important tools that help young learners make sense of complex math ideas. They are critical in easily transitioning them from the concrete to the abstract through movement and touch. A hands-on, multisensory learning environment is one of the most effective ways to overcome learning loss and engage students and this is especially true in math. Our classrooms have been completely redefined in the Covid-19 era and continually keeping students engaged in hands-on learning is far more challenging given the various learning models we find ourselves in. But it’s not impossible. Join Ann Elise Record, a math consultant specializing in hands-on learning, for a one-hour webinar to learn about hands-on strategies, tools, and resources that will stop learning loss in its tracks!

Keeping the Primary Promise: LAUSD’s Commitment to Making Learning Accessible and Engaging at Home…Without Technology

Presented by: Jackie Harvey and Cora Watson

Tuesday, April 27 2021 at 03:45 pm CDT

At the start of this school year, educators and administrators at Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) found themselves struggling with how to counteract the combined impact of students’ loss in literacy proficiency from COVID-19 and lack of engagement in remote learning that relies on technology. That’s when they decided to take a different approach and make hands-on resources available to all their K–5 students. Join Cora Watson from LAUSD’s Division of Instruction and Jackie Harvey from hand2mind as they discuss why they made this decision, what resources they decided to use and why, as well as what results they hope to achieve.
