Abstract

A design of principles for teacher professional learning was developed to improve the teaching of Cultural Mathematics in elementary schools in Papua New Guinea. The design's appropriateness for PNG elementary schools is being tried over several phases and improved with each evaluation. Implementation has been through a week-long workshop using technology enhancement. Implementation has been in different ecologies and through workshops with different numbers and diversity of languages of teachers attending. In this paper, design-based research is discussed in terms of this innovative project.
