NMW | Experiential Mathematics, February 23, 2023

Experiential learning is learning through experience and it gained significance as the learners are asked to reflect on their experience. Hands-on activities are promoted in experiential learning. Learners become more dynamic in experiential learning than the traditional didactic classroom, the trademark of passive learning. During this webinar, the participants experienced activities to discover this concept which was subsequently supported by theory. A resource bank was shared to provide teachers with material they could use in class.

This webinar was on February 23, 2023. It was hosted by Micheline Ammar, Equipe-Choc pedagogical and Rita Nassif, conseillère pédagogique, CSSMÎ.
