This Innovation Lab is a hands-on, deep dive into the connections between a problem solving framework, the mathematical practice standards, and support for students’ mathematical conversations. We will be using the CueThink platform for this purpose, an iPad application developed to foster digital creativity and deep learning.
In this session, participants become active peer-to-peer problem solvers, and experience how an end-to-end platform enhances student engagement and mathematical thinking. They will work through Polya’s four phases of problem solving and use annotation tools to provide intelligent feedback to peer’s math solutions. Our approach resembles Bansho, an instructional strategy that captures the development of students’ individual and collective thinking. We hope to have local students to facilitate this process.
Examples of student generated “thinklets” will be shared, framed as opportunities for professional learning directed at teaching strategies for 21st century skills such as formative assessment, communication, collaboration and critical thinking.

Leaving the lab, participants will retain access to their CueThink accounts, thinklets, and content that can serve as as exemplars of metacognitive problem solving to bring back to their classrooms. After the conference, CueThink will host #makemathsocial twitter chats to continue the conversations and encourage more teachers in the community to share best practices on problem solving.
CueThink has been designed to improve students' math problem-solving skills. At the heart of the platform are ""thinklets"" - video vignettes of solution strategies created by students with the help of scaffolds and rubrics. As learners develop systematic problem-solving skills, they are also able to share and learn from peers ""just like me"" while building a rich portfolio of strategies. CueThink leverages what students already know and do well – social media, content publishing, and gaming - and brings those experiences to the math classrooms, thereby deepening student engagement and learning.

4/5 Teacher, Poway Unified School District
Dena is a grade 4/5 teacher from San Diego. She is passionate about all things ed. tech and redesigning education as we know it. Having worked for over twenty years in education, Dena is constantly in awe at how technology literally transforms learning and, when students are put in the driver's seat, "edu-amazing" things happen. See feels fortunate to work at a site with 1:1 iPads and recognized as an Apple Distinguished School. .

Chief Academic Officer, CueThink
I am excited to brings STEM, Edtech, and almost 20 years of school, district, and state level public education experience to this workshop. I have enjoyed teaching, coaching, curriculum development and professional development for mathematics teaching and learning as well as effective and engaging classroom (technology) strategies. One passion of mine is supporting diverse and all student populations (students with disabilities, english... Read More →
