SCHOOL DISTRICT PARTNERS
The MKN Advisory Panel will meet at the end of February, and we will be announcing our initial school district partners. Their professional experience and knowledge are key components of the Math Knowledge Network.
Educators are active agents in any successful reform process. Mathematics teaching and learning needs they identify will be at the core of our collective work, as we seek to engage educators in reform that is personally and professionally meaningful and rewarding.
Ministry directions, particularly the RMS, and evidence- and practice-based knowledge will frame how we collaborate to address these needs in pedagogically and mathematically powerful ways that produce actionable, and shareable resources to improve student learning.
The MKN has been officially announced … see http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/news/Fields-to-Host-KNAER-Mathematics-Knowledge-Network
The Math Knowledge Network (MKN) is hosted by the Centre for Mathematics Education at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences.
The MKN is a KNAER Phase 2 project. The KNAER has made tremendous progress in knowledge mobilization in Ontario and the MKN will work closely with the KNAER Secretariat to build on this progress and further contribute to the education sector. The KNAER Secretariat includes co-directors Dr. Carol Campbell Dr. Katina Pollock, and knowledge mobilization managers Shasta Carr-Harris and Kelly Bairos.
