We are excited to announce the fifth Professional Development session in a series from our Communities of Practice: Math Leadership, Critical Transitions, Indigenous Knowledge & Computational Modelling.
This is a TWO-DAY PD Session, and requires registration and attendance for June 7 & 8 from 9:30am to 12pm.
Members of the Indigenous Knowledge CoP will explore how…
Mathematics, along with other subjects, are not exempt from colonial bias and harmful practices that lead to inequities in student achievement.
Exploring the impacts of colonialism will help to understand the importance of destreaming.
Indigenous knowledge systems, pedagogies and methodologies can enhance and support the teaching and learning of mathematical concepts.
Colonialism, through the education system has dismissed, devalued and erased Indigenous knowledge systems.
Welcome to Volume 2 Issue 1 of the Math Knowledge NetworkQuarterly!
We are starting our fifth year with some leadership changes. Dona Kotsopoulos, a soon to be Dean of Western Faculty of Education is continuing as a Co-Director, joined by Dragana Martinovic, Professor from University of Windsor, who is replacing George Gadanidis, while he is on sabbatical. This year was challenging for all educators, school leaders, parents and students, making it even more important that we celebrate resilience and successes in our communities. In this Newsletter, you can read about activities of our four communities of practice in the previous quarter. Wishing you all health and happiness as we are closing on 2020!
Donna & Dragana (MKN co-Directors), & Arielle (MKN Coordinator)
