About the Session:

You are invited to attend “Numeracy Across Alberta”, an opportunity for jurisdiction “Numeracy” instructional leaders to share ideas, learn from each other, and build a collaborative network to support their work within their specific school jurisdictions. The day will follow an “ED-Camp” format with several topics identified prior to the day and an opportunity to suggest ideas for a final topic.

The day provides an opportunity for participants to discuss a variety of topics identified in Mid-September. These topics will focus on suggestions from those individuals that are registering to attend. We would encourage you to register early and provide your ideas about topics you would like to see the day focus on.
