In August 2016, members of Team Pereyma travelled to Norway to connect, collaborate and plan with Norwegian educators.
Since this time, teachers from Pereyma and Molde have been connecting virtually to discuss the importance of student voice and to explore how we can become better at capturing and using student voice to drive our professional learning.
In November 2016, Pereyma was pleased to welcome educators from Molde, Norway and Fort McMurray, Alberta to our community.
Teachers worked together to discuss and explore a concrete-diagrammatic-symbolic approach to learning Mathematics, as well as pedagogical techniques used to differentiate instruction and assessment and to increase engagement of students in the Mathematical processes.
To share our Canadian heritage with our Norwegian visitors, and in honour of Remembrance Day, Pereyma students explored the role of Math and Science in the Canadian victory at Vimy Ridge, France in April 1916.
Teachers from many departments contributed to creating "Pereyma's Road to Vimy Ridge" task. Teachers and students alike learned much from this first "Full-day Challenge Learning Event" at Pereyma.
Team Pereyma continues to be thankful for the amazing learning opportunity that NORCAN provides for both students and educators. We look forward to more exciting learning in the year ahead!
