Why I am Blogging

As part of the development of ATSIMA, I thought I would start my first ever blog. The idea behind the blog is to share with the membership

  • what I have been doing;
  • to brainstorm new pedagogy ideas on maths education; and
  • general issues around mathematics education for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

It is meant to be informal information sharing and your response on any of the posts are welcomed and valued. We are very interested in what you think. Over the next couple of days I will be blogging about a symposium I attended regarding using Creole (or Kriol) in the classroom. I want to share the key points I got from the symposium and please share any thoughts you may have on these key points.

Talk again soon....

  • Hi Chris,
    I am teaching high school maths in the Kimberley region of WA. I am interested in using Khan academy online resources ( ) with my students for helping them to learn maths. I was wondering if you know of anyone with experience using Khan academy with indigenous students?
    I think it could also be very useful for professional development of indigenous teaching assistants and also primary teachers. I am interested in researching the usefulness of digital learning environments like Khan academy both with students and staff.

  • I'd like to learn more about the symposium when you have time.
