    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 the focus of the research implemented through week-long workshops using technology enhancement. Implementation has been in different ecologies and through workshops with different numbers and diversity of languages of teachers attending. This paper outlines the design of the principles and the structure of the workshop.
