See below for PD Session Facilitation Guides and recordings!
Members of the Critical Transitions in Early Math Group will share and provide access to resources for educators that support K-Grade 3 mathematics. Presenters will include Melanie Martin and Dr. Lynda Colgan (The Roots of Coding); Dr. Sandy Youmans (Early Math at Home and Early Math at School); Dr. Heather Douglas (Early Math Assessment Screening Tool); Hannah Wickstrom (Structured Play); and Angeline Hunter (Greater Essex County District Classroom Support Documents).
Mathematics Leadership has partnered with Dr. John Mighton from JUMP Math to talk about evidence-based principles of instruction, and share the results of research and implementation of JUMP Math.
Members of the Computational Modelling CoP will present on Math+Making activities and Computational Participation (Kafai, 2016) activities. Moreover, you will have an opportunity to explore a new virtual tool, CoSpaces Edu, and a lesson plan which provides an idea of how to use patterns while creating a virtual garden in CoSpaces Edu.
George Gadanidis (Western University) of the Computational Modelling CoP will present on Math+Coding Grades 6 to 10 in a collaborative learning setting. This session will introduce a research-based resource offering: low floor & high ceiling tasks, coding starting points to bring math to life dynamically, conceptual surprises & insights, and a revitalized classroom culture. Participants will receive a free PDF copy of the resource, Math + Coding Teams, Gr. 6-10.
