To help educators prepare for, implement and discuss socially and culturally responsive problem-based learning.
Ne`epapa Ka Hana (NKH)
Seeking new ideas, inspiration or support for mathematics instruction? Teachers looking for research-based strategies to engage and challenge students of diverse backgrounds may access materials from the Ne‘epapa Ka Hana (NKH) Teacher Institute. Our institute provides an introduction to:
inclusive mathematics pedagogy,
culturally and socially responsive problem-based learning, and
cooperative learning through technology (connectivism).
NKH also provides several invite-only professional development courses to teachers from partnering schools during its Summer, Fall and Spring Institutes. A virtual Summer Institute provides a conceptual foundation for the NKH pedagogical approach. An on-site Fall Institute delivers training on implementation of NKH learning activities, formative assessment for students and successful use of the NKH learning platform. Two additional on-site professional development courses will be provided to participating teachers during a Spring Institute. Throughout the school year, the NKH team provides on-site implementation support. All of the NKH Teacher Institute resources are open and freely available, including lecture videos, slides, and handouts.
