The Math Pod is an OPEN learning opportunity organized in collaboration between three regions in the Province of Ontario, Canada:
- Barrie Region: Math Leadership and Learning Network (ML2N)
- Northeastern Ontario Region: Mathematics Leadership Network (MLN)
- Northwestern Ontario Region: Math Leadership and Learning Network (ML2N)
Originating in the Northeastern Region in 2016/2017, through Leader Learning in relation to mathematics, the “Not A Book Study” was launched. This was an opportunity for members of the Northeast MLN to connect with Dr Cathy Fosnot via Stephen Hurley‘s VoiceEd Radio to learn about multiplication and division through her book, Young Mathematicians at Work: Constructing Multiplication and Division.
This year, we will be focusing on Dr Fosnot’s New Perspectives on Learning.
Participants will be able to interact, network and share thinking with other educators on various open online platforms and they will be guided weekly by the author to explore key ideas and resources.
