For teachers to take part they can register at https://new.censusatschool.org.nz/take-part/ . There is some good preparation material also on this page for students to gather data in advance so that they can complete the census. Remember that gathering and recording data is all part of the PPDAC cycle process.
NZAMT, in association with the MoE have created a document to help mathematics and statistics teachers understand the changes that have been made on the Senior Secondary NZ Curriculum Guides and the implication it will have on teaching and learning. This document is available here:
The unpacking of the External Achievement Standards documents for Levels 1 and 2 will also be shared through workshops coming to all regions in term 1 and 2. Please keep an eye out for these workshops through this facebook page and NZAMT website.
Funding of up to $7,000 for education sector women available
Building on the significant developmental momentum achieved in 2018, Women & Leadership Australia is administering a national initiative to support the development of female leaders across NZ’s education sector.
The campaign is providing women with grants of between $3,000 and $7,000 to enable participation in a range of leadership development programs.
The scholarship funding is provided with the specific intent of providing powerful and effective development opportunities for education sector women; however the funding is strictly limited and has to be allocated prior to the end of March.
There are 3 surveys for: Y1-6 teachers, Y7-10 teachers, and Y11-13 teachers.
NZAMT and your regional Mathematics Associations have been funded for the next two years to support teachers and leaders within the Mathematics and Statistics learning area. As part of the support a national and regional Kaiārahi have been, or are being appointed across all regions of New Zealand. The national Kaiārahi is responsible for national and regional needs, the regional Kaiārahi is responsible for regional and local needs.
This survey is to assist the national and regional Kaiārahi to support teachers and schools through identifying national, regional and local needs.
As a result we expect to undertake different activities and supports for teachers and leaders in mathematics and statistics including: * coordinating a series of workshops to address national, regional and local needs of teachers and delivered as cluster workshops * supporting teachers' personal development, in clusters, of: 1. content knowledge and requirements of solving problems - pedagogy 2. curriculum knowledge 3. learning progressions within the learning area of mathematics and statistics 4. leadership * assisting beginning teachers (PCTs) with meeting the requirements of the teaching standards for teacher registration * supporting middle leaders (HoDs and HoFs) * supporting the development of culturally responsive pedagogies * using the Teaching as Inquiry spiral.
Please take the time to complete the survey as an individual, as a small group or as a faculty to assist in our planning for 2019 and 2020.
There are three surveys, please select the one(s) that is appropriate for you.
