Mathematics, Research and More with Craig Barton

Episode 95: In what seems like the blink of an eye, Term 1 is in the rearview mirror and we’ve arrived at the end of Season 5. But fret not, because I have a wonderful Finale to share with you today. I usually try to get in and out of the description as quickly as possible but I need to take a moment to thank all of our wonderful guests from this season for sharing their wisdom and experience these past few months. To Clare, Becky, Sam, Aidan, Juan, Dan, James, Richard, and Kate your generosity knows no bounds and I know that I am a better teacher for my conversations with you, and I am certain that there will be countless others listening who feel the same. Speaking of being a better teacher. I, like many others, owe a huge professional debt of gratitude to my guest today. For many years, he has worked tirelessly to bring some of the brightest minds in education into our cars, trains, bikes, kitchens, and living rooms as well as sharing what he has learned through engaging with research in some of the most important education books of the last decade. It is, of course, the one and only, Craig Barton. They say you shouldn’t meet your heroes. Well, I’m here to tell you that they are wrong. Craig is a stone cold legend and I’ve been bursting to share this since we recorded all the way back in July. So what do you do when you meet a living legend? You try and ask them as many questions as possible in 60 minutes. So that’s what I did and I know you’re going to love the result. Without further ado, for the final time this season, let’s spend some time Thinking Deeply about Primary Education.
