The third of our conversations exploring how schools and teachers are managing the challenges of providing remote learning in maths, supporting students and looking after their own well-being during the 2020 Covid-19 school closures.
We hope that this interview, and others, will generate ideas and allow listeners to reflect on their own practice, remembering that different contexts will require different approaches.
