Ontario’s New Mathematics Focus on Social Emotional Learning: How This Influences Our Practices​

 

 

Ontario's New Mathematics Focus on Social Emotional Learning - How This Influences Our Practiceshttps://www.etfo.ca/AboutETFO/Webcasts/VideoLibrary/Ontario's New Mathematics Focus on Social Emotional Learning - How This Influences Our PracticesOntario's New Mathematics Focus on Social Emotional Learning - How This Influences Our PracticesThis webcast investigates the new Social Emotional Learning strand in the 2020 revised mathematics curriculum and its relationship to our current practices, using the example of Number Talks. We will discuss how purposeful practice can integrate Social Emotional Learning with the revised mathematics curriculum's seven processes and classroom norms. Practical and relevant resources and examples will support educators with the implementation of this new strand.

Centering Equity in Mathematics Teaching and Learning

 

 

Centering Equity in Mathematics Teaching and Learninghttps://www.etfo.ca/AboutETFO/Webcasts/VideoLibrary/Centering Equity in Mathematics Teaching and LearningCentering Equity in Mathematics Teaching and LearningIn this webcast we will critically examine the new areas of the mathematics curriculum with an anti-oppressive and anti-racist lens to identify barriers in curriculum design and suggest ways to create opportunities for all students to be successful. Re-humanizing mathematics as an equity action creates space for educators to reimagine mathematics teaching and learning in ways that affirm students’ identities and empowers students to use mathematics learning to address issues that impact their world. Centering equity in mathematics, centers the learners, so that all students have an opportunity to engage in learning that reflects their lived experiences and learning that connects them to new experiences or the experiences of others.

Exploring Social-Emotional Learning Skills in Mathematics

 

 

Exploring Social-Emotional Learning Skills in Mathematicshttps://www.etfo.ca/AboutETFO/Webcasts/VideoLibrary/Exploring Social-Emotional Learning Skills in MathematicsExploring Social-Emotional Learning Skills in MathematicsThe Ministry of Education released a revised mathematics curriculum. Included in this curriculum is a strand devoted to social-emotional learning. The webcast provides an overview of Strand A, and how it is connected to the mathematical processes. We will explore considerations for instruction and assessment along with supports and resources to support implementation. The learning goals for this webcast include: to develop an understanding of the Social-Emotional Learning Skills and why they are important in mathematics instruction; to consider strategies to embed Social-Emotional Learning Skills throughout your mathematics instruction; and to develop an awareness of resources that are available to support educators.

Coding Connections in Intermediate Grades Mathematics

 

 

Coding Connections in Intermediate Grades Mathematicshttps://www.etfo.ca/AboutETFO/Webcasts/VideoLibrary/Coding Connections in Intermediate Grades MathematicsCoding Connections in Intermediate Grades MathematicsWith the release of the new Ontario Math Curriculum, this webcast focuses on how we can integrate coding and computational thinking within our classroom culture. Although the content examples are based around Intermediate Grades Mathematics, the same concepts and ideas shared, can be used and modified for any grade level. After decoding the curriculum expectations and it's new terminology, we explore how to complete some math challenges (with and without technology) and how coding ultimately can serve as a platform to extend higher-level thinking, a way to visualize tough problems, and inspire valuable resilience and core value skills in the classroom and beyond.
