Steve was director of The Math Forum since the mid-nineties through 2017, and principal investigator on a number of NSF-funded research projects developing ways for math educators to interact and form knowledge-building communities. Currently Steve is working with Annie and Dave, along with a team of software developers to build:
– the EnCoMPASS platform for reviewing student work, generating feedback using our notice and wonder approach, and teacher collaboration to think about student work and formative assessment
– the Virtual Math Teams environment for small group collaboration in mathematical problem solving. VMT incorporates GeoGebra and (soon!) Desmos into a real-time collaborative chat that can be replayed and studied for the development of mathematical practices.
Annie and Steve also work with colleagues at Bootstrap on professional development for math teachers who want to teach Algebra while introducing students to computer science through the Bootstrap program.
