University of Hawaii Ethnomathematics and STEM Institute

In an effort to address issues of equitable and quality education, culturally sustaining science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) pedagogy is explored across the State of Hawai’i and Pacific in alignment with state and federal benchmarks, including Mathematics Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and Nā Hopena A’o. We strive to advance a coordinated effort focused on ethnomathematics and the needs of diverse learners, with the aim of informing research and deepening practice within and outside of the classroom. The Ethnomathematics and STEM Institute brings together research institutions and community-based organizations including the University of Hawai’i System, Hawai’i State Department of Education, Pacific American Foundation, Pacific Resources for Education and Learning, Hawai’i P-20 Partnerships for Education, and the Polynesian Voyaging Society to support professional development for P-20 STEM educators and students.

    Aloha Linda..congrats on your successful voyage! Welcome back!…btw i was honored to have you highlighted at my graduation Convocation …now i too join the ranks of education specialists…my focus area being peace education/education for sustainable development …i am in Canada for the summer planning to return in Sept to continue working with University Laboratory School towards involving the students (through Miki) in greening their education and facilities..in my project paper on the ULS i concluded they should be leading edge research center …is there a connection between ULS and UH Ethnomathematics Institute? (btw the video posted in this blog is not functioning)… perhaps we should discuss how ethnomath can assist ULS curriculum and student participation in renovating the ULS into a dream campus.
