This past weekend Desmos invited 50 math educators from North America to join
us for our 3rd annual Desmos Fellowship Weekend. We were grateful for the
chance to hang out during the weekend with this group of incredibly talented
and inspiring educators, and we are looking forward to the journey ahead.
Some highlights from the weekend included:
Sessions from the Desmos Teaching Team and Desmos Fellows helping educators
learn how Desmos supports teachers in using Desmos tools.
- A keynote from Eli Luberoff.
- Desmos Trivia hour and other after hours outings.
Above all else the weekend focused on community and helping teachers learn from each other. From sharing activities to discussing next year’s textbook adoption and how to use Desmos for assessment, Desmos Fellows gathered ideas to bring back to their schools, and built relationships that will sustain them throughout their careers.
See what the Desmos Fellows had to say about our Cohort 3 Weekend:
