AIM for Resource Curation: EMA @ school

AIM for Resource Curation: EMA @ school

By The AIM Collective

The AIM Collective is a partnership initiative designed to engage researchers and educators from school districts across Canada to support the development of tools for assessment and instruction in mathematics learning in those formative years: kindergarten through grade 3. On May 2nd and 3rd, AIM investigators, led by Dr. Rebecca Merkley from Carleton University hosted a summit that brought together members of the collective: educators, researchers, and students. The Summit was an important step in building connections to support co-creation of meaningful research and useful tools for students’ math learning.

Dr. Heather Douglas: Heather Douglas is an adjunct research professor and post-doc in the Department of Cognitive Science at Carleton University.  After 10 years of teaching elementary school, she returned to university to find out more about how children learn math. In 2020, Heather received her PhD in Cognitive Science and has continued working to foster connections between research and the classroom.  She is a proud part of the AIM Collective, a community of educators and researchers working together to share evidence-informed, teacher-approved math education tools and resources. 

Ashley Kozak: Ashley Kozak is a K-12 Math Program Lead with the Upper Grand District School Board. As the Math Lead for the Board, she helped to develop the Multi-Year Math Plan, and provides instructional support and resources to administrators and teachers. As part of the math plan, Ashley developed a small-group instruction program for Math Support Teachers to implement with Grade 3 students, based on the EMA@School screener data.  Ashley has been an Elementary teacher with the Upper Grand District School Board for 17 years.
