Erasmus+ project team
Meet the Erasmus+ project team.
Jill Brown - Schools' Support Officer CSSC
"We are delighted to be leading this important project that supports the development of teachers in two priority areas for education: the effective use of technology and problem solving in mathematics.
We look forward to sharing our expertise and learning from our international and local partners, as well as engaging and supporting teachers from the controlled sector." For additional information on Jill Brown, click here.
Jonny Hall - Kilcooley Primary School
"I am delighted to be part of the project as I am very passionate about the importance of problem solving within the whole school curriculum and the benefits it has for people in their everyday lives.
I look forward to learning from like minded professionals, developing my own skills and incorporating this in my own practice as well as disseminating good practice to my peers."
Jemma McAlonan - Bangor Academy and Sixth Form College
"I am very excited to be working with such a dynamic and inspiring group of teaching practitioners from all over Europe.
This project will have a really beneficial impact on our teaching and on pupil success in mathematics at Bangor Academy. It will also be of great value to other mathematics teachers across the province who are involved in the dissemination activities."
Jackie Howie - Learning Link Scotland
"We at Learning Link Scotland are delighted to be partners in this project. We have a lot to learn from our partners across Europe and a lot to contribute from the adult learning perspective in Scotland.
We are particularly pleased that we are adopting a cross-sectoral approach to problem solving in mathematics with an emphasis on using technologies to increase learning."
Mark Prendergast - Trinity College Dublin
"This is a very topical and timely project especially given the current international curricula reforms which are placing more of an emphasis on both problem solving and digital technologies in the classroom.
Trinity College Dublin are particularly excited to collaborate with our European partners and to use this opportunity to develop best practice in mathematics education."
Søs Spahn - UCC Denmark
"Problem solving is an important issue when you teach and learn math.
I want to focus on how problem solving and posing can be a bigger part of the way math is taught and how the students learn to solve and pose problems. "
Tiina Vesaaja - Vamia Finland
"It is nice to be a member of the group, who are really interested in developing math teaching. I´m sure that I’ll learn new ways to teach and to think about math problems.
I hope I’ll be a better teacher after this project! And of course it´s nice to learn more English!"
Misa Muotio - Vamia Finland
"I'm so excited to be involved in this project. I hope to build up my confidence for teaching problem solving and inventing my own math problems.
In addition, I hope that I can spread my knowledge to other teachers."
