AIM for Resource Curation: ToyBox Manitoba

AIM for Resource Curation: ToyBox Manitoba

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.
