As part of the RMS Virtual Learning Series, four sessions focused on Supporting Indigenous Learners, in Mathematics will be offered from 1-3 p.m. on October 5, November 9, December 7, 2017 & January 11, 2018.
Ruth Beatty (Lakehead University) and Danielle Blair (on assignment with Ministry of Education) created and are facilitating these sessions which are based on their six years of research and, more specifically, the last five with Pikwakanagan First Nation, The Algonquin Way Cultural Centre, Omamiwinini Pimadjwowin, and Eganville and District Public School. Ruth and Danielle are both Indigenous Knowledge CoP members, and are happy to share their work via link to these sessions on the RMS Learning Exchange, which those interested can register for.
You can register for these sessions here. Details on the Supporting Indigenous Learners, in Mathematics sessions can be found in this PDF.

Our Mathematics Leadership CoP member organizations (pictured below) have been busy collecting data and monitoring their professional development activities.
To learn about their research findings so far, check out this Research Report on Mathematics Educator Leadership in Ontario by Dragana Martinovic, co-Lead of our Mathematics Leadership CoP.
This report will be revised annually to address their recent activities and new data, and relate those to the findings of others. This living document will detail their work and inform further research-practice-policy conversations about mathematics educator leadership in Ontario.

We asked our four Communities of Practice how their work aligns with the Ontario Ministry of Education’s Renewed Mathematics Strategy. To see what they said, check out this 1-page summary!
