Hi Zsolt,

Definitely interested in this! Please keep us 'in the loop'. We have a lot of 
Further Maths students at Havering Sixth Form College, to say nothing of record 
numbers of AS Maths students this year.

Subject: [ncetm-geogebra] GeoGebra CPD with Further Mathematics Support 

Dear Friends,

I have just had a meeting with Sharon Tripconey from the Further
Mathematics Support Programme, which is supported by the Mathematics
in Education and Industry (MEI) and funded by DCFS.

The FMSP is interested in offering GeoGebra professional development
for teachers in England. They already has a capacity to deliver CPD
both physical and on-line, but according to Sharon they miss the
expertise in GeoGebra. It would be a possibility to develop teaching
materials and CPD courses for KS-5 and Further Maths (and it could be
extended to KS-4 and AS Maths through MEI). If you were interested in
participating in this development that would be great and afterwards
in the delivery/support of these course both on-line and face-to-face.

According to Sharon FMSP could support the development of these
materials and delivering of these courses would be paid for presenters
(the courses are self funded by teachers and presenters are paid from
this money). Also, we could develop research projects around this
development and apply funding (probably from government agencies,
ESRC, NCETM or other funding bodies, FMSP could advise us for
possibilities for funding applications) for doing research both on the
development and delivery of these CPD courses.

If you have interest being involved in this, have recommendations or
ideas please let us know and we can go further in this area. It would
be definitely a good step forward getting GeoGebra known and used in

All best wishes,


ps: if you know anyone who might want to be involved in this please
also let us know
