Learning Math “in the Open”

We’re trying something new.

It’s an innovative approach to a challenging problem, and it has the commitment of leaders from throughout northeastern Ontario.

We are building our understanding of how to learn and lead mathematics in our elementary schools, and we are doing it out in the open.

Embedded in our learning is a commitment to sharing openly in social media (#mathleaders NEO on Instagram and Twitter), and on our website.

We have made a conscious decision to avoid the use of an LMS.

We are not hiding our work behind a password unless privacy is necessary.   In this way, we are embedding the learning of digital literacies into our work.

We are also modelling practices that can be used by anyone to share, collaborate, and learn together.  We are supporting the integration of collaborative technologies to transcend the geographic barriers we face as a region.

We invite you to learn with us, to question our thinking and to push our understanding.  Watch our site and our social media presence for prompts, live-streamed events, conversations and challenges.
