OAME Leadership Conference 2018: Learning in the 21st Century

The Mathematics Leadership CoP and partners will be presenting twice at the upcoming OAME 2018 Leadership Conference. We look forward to engaging with attending educators from across Ontario and guests from the US!

More information and session descriptions will be available soon on the OAME website.

The Math Pod Cycle 2 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 2 of The Math Pod occurred from January 17 – February 7, 2018. Check out the highlights from Cycle 2 in this NEW report by our Mathematics Leadership Community of Practice!

Cycle 3 of The Math Pod begins tonight (April 4th) at 8 p.m. This time around, the theme is “Arithmetic to Algebra: Looking for the Powerful Moments, K-8.” Cathy Fosnot will be opening up her online platform, P2S2, for the month of April and will be running an online Professional Learning Community (PLC) to accompany the weekly radio show on VoicEd Radio.

Math Leadership: Professional Learning Guides

Take a look at the two guides used by the GECDSB facilitators to lead the professional learning in their board!

The Moderating Mathematics Guide is a protocol for professional development in mathematics especially developed for the whole school inquiry or for work with teams of educators from across all grades. The goal of the Facilitator (e.g., Coach, Math Lead) is to support the school’s professional learning community until the group is confident enough to lead their own learning. Building educator efficacy and leadership is a central goal of this process and is what contributes to its sustainability over time.

The Professional Learning Facilitators’ Guide was used by the GECDSB Principals to support sessions on Number Sense, organized in their schools.
