Robertson Program and partners present at OAME 2017

The Robertson Program and many of our partner educators are in Kingston, Ontario for the next three days attending this year’s Ontario Association of Mathematics Educators (OAME) Conference.

Bev Caswell and Joan Moss have been collaborating with teachers from the Rainy River District School Board (RRDSB), Seven Generations Education Institute (7 Gens), Matawa Education, and the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study (OISE/UofT) to prepare for seven presentations!

We are so thrilled with this opportunity to share our stories and some of the innovative lessons that have come out of the work we’ve done together. In fact, today the OAME Conference is highlighting teaching and learning with an Indigenous focus – and four of those sessions feature our educational partners!

If you’re at OAME, be sure to check out The Robertson Program at the following sessions:
