Maths in the Kimberley Project: Evaluating the Pedagogical Model
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
The Mathematics in the Kimberley Project is a three-year research and development project that focuses on mathematical pedagogy in remote Aboriginal community schools. The research team has regularly reported on the project at MERGA (Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia) conferences, and in this symposium the participants evaluate the pedagogical model that underpins the project. After two years of the project, the data indicate that some aspects of the pedagogical model have been successful, but other aspects have not been particularly fruitful and still require greater thought, research and development. The papers included in this symposium are: (1) The Maths in the Kimberley Project: An Overview (Richard Niesche, Peter Grootenboer, Robyn Jorgensen and Peter Sullivan); (2) Effective Features of the Maths in the Kimberley Inclusive Pedagogy Model (Peter Grootenboer); and (3) Group Work, Language and Interaction: Challenges of Implementation in Aboriginal Contexts (Robyn Jorgensen). Individual papers contain figures, tables and references. [For the complete proceedings, "Shaping the Future of Mathematics Education.
