Simon Ball teaches A level and GCSE resit at a sixth form college in central Manchester. The college are reducing numbers of students on site by only having half year groups in at a time. Since September Simon has been teaching half his class online while the other half engage with the lesson from home. He talks to us about this juggling act, what works well, the pitfalls and also some unexpected benefits.
Taking part in the discussion are:
- Simon Ball: Teacher of A level maths, A level statistics and GCSE maths resit and Level 2 Maths Curriculum Lead.
- Gwen Tresidder: NCETM Communications Manager
Simon tweets as @ballyzero. He is a regular contributor and occasional host to our #mathscpdchat on Twitter on Tuesday evenings. Simon Ball is also involved in organising TeachMeetIcons maths events, free subject-specific events by teachers, for teachers.
