I filmed this video at the researchED event held on Saturday 1st July at Brighton Grammar. Stephen Norton is someone who I have wanted to meet and hear speak for some time. This particular presentation does not lend itself well to filming – Norton eschewed PowerPoint and had more of a discussion with the people in the room, some of whom challenged him on a number of points. You can hear these interventions on the audio track. As Norton walks around, he bobs in and out of the video and you can’t always see what he is doing. There are also a couple of errors in places. However, I still think it is well worth viewing if you want a sense of the debate around teaching elementary maths in Australia.
Stephen Norton gave a keynote on Monday 3rd July. This is a more traditional kind of presentation and I hope it is available soon.
