Blogosphere of Math Educators

The Global Math Department is a community of math teachers who communicate online via Twitter and blogs, so they use the nickname Math Twitter Blogosphere (MTBoS). Over time this diverse group of teachers (preservice to retired) has grown in number and scope of activities. They have different contexts and experiences, as specific as urban high school teachers of students with disabilities, providing a broad perspective. Members have developed resources, curricula, and websites, and co-authored a book. They run online workshop sessions, problem-solving groups, and a weekly “department meeting” via webinar. The online connections have even spilled over into “real life”—with an annual conference called Twitter Math Camp. MTBoS is an informal organization—there are no membership fees or requirements to participate.
