The Critical Transitions in Early Math Community of Practice hosted the first ever Canadian Early Mathematics Education (CEME) Conference from March 1st to 4th, 2021. The conference had over 1,200 people registered.
The presentations were pre-recorded and live streamed during the virtual event, with presenters taking part in live Q&A periods with attendees.
Drs. Lynda Colgan and Sandy Youmans presented the MKN resources that have been developed: Roots of Coding and Math @ Home activities. The practical teaching and assessment materials will be “classroom ready” – designed for educators. Sample activities were demonstrated, and participants had the opportunity to try some out.
The success of the conference is highlighted by Queen’s University in this article.
