In-Person Professional Development

ST Math program training is designed to introduce educators to ST Math software and the neuroscience behind it. Understanding “why” ST Math works, how schemas are constructed, and the focus of the teacher as a facilitator helps educators utilize the program as an instructional tool. Additional coaching and consulting services are also available to support program implementation.

ST Math is more than just a software program. It is a dynamic tool for instruction and learning. These in-person workshops help teachers get the most out of ST Math as students play individually, and teachers integrate puzzles in the classroom and use reports to guide instruction.

MIND Research also offers workshops to deepen participants’ content knowledge while developing instructional practices to move math instruction from practicing procedures to solving and making sense of problems. 

Other workshops help participants learn how to shift classroom culture from a procedural, teacher-centered classroom to one that is student-centered. Teachers are provided with hands-on problem-solving lessons that engage learners, resulting in a more productive, creative learning environment.

In addition to formal professional development offerings, the Education Success team of master teachers and ST Math experts offer site-based, job-embedded coaching for teachers and administrators.

Maximizing ST Math Series
"I walked into the first training day with a negative view of ST Math. It was based on observations I had made 4-5 years ago on my campus. Boy, was I mistaken. After the first 15-20 minutes of training, after learning the REAL purpose and mission of ST Math, I realized that the makers were actually geniuses! I now understand and respect the spatial temporal process as well as the perception action cycle which it takes to learn!"
