Maude opens this interview by highlighting several findings from research: mathematics is a source of great anxiety for students, girls are under-represented in the world of science and technology, and those who will develop a feeling of no -competence in relation to these disciplines will do so before the age of 9 years. She also recalls that when students who start school today enter the labor market, it will have been completely transformed by technology, robotization and automation.

Faced with these findings, primary school can play an important role in breaking down perceptions by starting in kindergarten and in a structured way the learning of science and mathematics.

During the last CréaCamp in Valcartier, Maude and her co-facilitator Kim insisted on the importance of allocating time in her educational planning for children to manipulate in mathematics and experiment in science. They also demonstrated to the participants that it is quite possible to do it in an interdisciplinary way, by exploiting these subjects from activities that they already carry out.

Giving time is valuing - Maude Lamoureux

We invite you to listen to the interview to find out why time and the right to error are two essential ingredients that promote success and reduce children's anxiety about science and math.

We also invite you to register for a CréaCamp edition of our 2019 program to give you time to explore new pedagogical approaches!
