Jober A, Chronaki A & Swanson D (2017) Discussion Group : Assessing and Accessing Experiences of Newly Arrived Students and Teachers. 9th International Conference of Mathematics Education and Society: Mathematics and Life at Times of Crisis, Thessaly, Greece, 07.04.2017-12.04.2017.
Abstract There is a great risk that children’s possibilities to experience education are strongly reduced in time of crisis. Within this context we aim to convene a discussion group aiming to address and discuss migration in relation to practices of assessing and accessing newly arrived students within three European contexts. Taking into account that they come from conflict-ridden and economically-deprived parts of the world we are interested to explore how the entanglements of mathematics and science education with the lives of young refugees speak to their realities, aspirations and wellbeing. Presenters in the workshop are researchers, teacher educators and student teachers who are involved in work-in-progress projects with refugees. The discussion group will be an initial step to start up a network that can elaborate on issues of migration and education at an international level.
