VITAL: Early Childhood Mathematics Education

Partner(s): Herb Ginsburg - Teachers College

The National Science Foundation is supporting CCNMTL and Herbert P. Ginsburg, Professor of Psychology and Education at Teachers College, with a grant to continue the development of Video Interactions for Teaching and Learning (VITAL): A Learning Environment for Courses in Early Childhood Mathematics Education. The project's main goal is to develop and distribute a resource that will enhance undergraduate- and graduate-level programs in mathematics education to address the national need for improved teacher training for early childhood mathematics (pre-K through grade 3). During the five-year grant period, we are working to (1) create model undergraduate and graduate courses in early childhood mathematics education, (2) design a new version of VITAL based on extensive user testing and formative evaluations, (3) test VITAL and the new curriculum at partner universities around the country, and (4) conduct an evaluation of student learning outcomes.
