Dr. Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai and Nasreen Majid presented their research at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) conference in Toronto. The AERA conference is one of the world’s largest education conferences and this year it was held between Friday 5 April Tuesday 9 April 2019 in Toronto, Canada.
Dr. Trakulphadetkrai’s presentation (titled ‘Irish Teachers’ Perceptions on the Integration of Children’s Literature in Mathematics Teaching and Learning’) was based on a recent research project that he collaborated with Dr. Mark Prendergast (Trinity College Dublin) as well as Dr. Lorraine Harbison and Sue Miller (Dublin City University). This study explored Irish pre-service and in-service teachers’ views on the use of children’s literature to support mathematics teaching and learning and to investigate perceived barriers to and enablers for the integration of children’ literature in the mathematics classroom.
