Math Leadership Learning Project in GECDSB

The GECDSB’s Mathematics Leadership Learning Project (MLLP) was designed to build capacity of mathematics lead-learners and mobilize them within schools in order to build expertise of all educators. This project supported Math Leadership Learning Teams in 6 schools to lead math learning through Professional Learning Communities (PLCs).

Project Goals:

  • Building mathematics content, pedagogy and leadership knowledge and skills of school-based math leaders
  •  Better understanding the supports needed for math leaders
  • Improving student achievement in mathematics
  • Informing system planning and supports

Data were gathered in the 6 MLLP schools from MLLP teams (surveys and interviews) and students (PRIME mathematics assessment).

Further details, results, and implications for future learning can be found in the NEW report by our Mathematics Leadership CoP & GECDSB.

The Math Pod Cycle 3 Overview

The Math Pod  is a collaborative open learning opportunity for all educators lead by three Ontario math leadership networks, the MLN, ML2N, and NWML2N.

Cycle 3 of The Math Pod occurred from April 4-25, 2018. During these 4 weeks of professional learning with Dr. Cathy Fosnot, participants moved from arithmetic to algebra. Check out the highlights from Cycle 3 in this NEW report by our Mathematics Leadership Community of Practice!

Visible Learning for Mathematics

In partnership with Ontario’s Principals’ Council, Corwin (a publisher of PreK–12 professional learning resources) organized a two-day institute around Visible Learning research. Keynotes John Hattie, Jenni Donohoo, John Almarode, and Olivia Amador-Valerio will contribute to professional learning about creating Visible Learning Schools. The second day is dedicated to Visible Learning Mathematics, when John Almarode will talk about what works best in the teaching and learning of mathematics and how to maximize learner growth and achievement.  Participants will be actively engaged in doing mathematics during the session.
