Ep 01 — Let’s Connect the Research Lab and Classroom

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.

Rebecca Merkley is an Associate Professor at Carleton University and has a special interest in research related to cognition, learning and mathematics. Patrick McLeod is an educator and math support consultant in Eastern Ontario.

In this opening episode of On The Right Track, Rebecca and Patrick imagine the impact that could be made if a stronger and more intentional connection between the research lab and the classroom could be established and nurtured.
