Of course, not all our learning comes from our online connections. We learn from our f2f co-workers as well, when we take the time to sit down (or go for a walk) and talk about our work.
I am very fortunate to work in a center that highly values the building of personal relationships and the informal sharing of our work and learning.
We take time each month to celebrate birthdays and eat a special lunch together. It amazes me how much learning and how many new projects arise after we take this time to share the work we are doing in our different branches.
Today, I learned so much about the Aboriginal perspective on mathematics education. This is a completely new area of learning for me, and for those who are interested in learning more, here is a fabulous place to start your understanding: showmeyourmath.ca
Thank you so much to my colleague, Yvonne Morrison (EO, Aboriginal Education) for sharing her learning with me.
I hope you find this topic as fascinating and engaging as I did.
