Assessing Computational Thinking and Data Literacy: Designing the Callysto Computational Thinking Test (CCTt)Download
The Callysto Project is a collaborative project by Cybera and the Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), with funding from the Government of Canada. It involves the development and assessment of modules that promote data literacy and computational thinking. Using the Jupyter notebook...
LEARNING THROUGH GAMES Students can develop a meaningful understanding of mathematical ideas through games before they move toward abstractions (Dienes, 1971). Ernest (1986) identified three educational uses of games: gain skill-based fluency, develop conceptual understanding, and refine problem...
Hope is consistently identified in the mental heath literature as a key factor accounting for client change in counselling and psychotherapy (Grencavage & Norcross, 1990). Research on client and psychotherapist understandings of hope in psychotherapy calls into question the singular,...
The United Nations (UN) guiding principles of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) includes non-discrimination, full participation and inclusion in society (UNCRPD, 2014, para. 9). Unfortunately, many scholars with disabilities are not represented in the academic and...
• Assessment’s purpose is primarily as evidence to improve future teaching and learning in math class. • Reform in classroom-based mathematics assessment has not followed pace with reforms in teaching and learning. • Categories of assessment as formative (assessment for and as learning) and...
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Factors Associated with Mathematics and Science AchievementDownload
Poster created for the 2019 ENGAGE conference at the University of Alberta.
Museums and science centres are an excellent space for science and research to intersect by providing the general public opportunities to work with scientists who conduct the research and scientists to unpack their research for the public (e.g., Andre, Durksen, & Volman, 2016).
Parents' Use of Scaffolding Strategies to Support Young Children's Mathematical Reasoning in Game PlayDownload
Commercial games could provide a vital, engaging home-school connection to support children’s mathematical learning. Our interest is in understanding what scaffolding and approaches parents used to support young 4 to 5 year old children in their mathematical reasoning and game play strategies....
Communities in the western Arctic can now connect to high-speed digital infrastructure – a situation that provides both opportunities and challenges for residents of the Northwest Territories (NWT). The completion of the long-anticipated Mackenzie Valley Fibre Link (MVFL) in June 2017 and...
