A. Background

Numeracy has become the current buzzword in the world of Indonesian mathematics education since the Ministry of Education and Culture, Research and Technology of the Republic of Indonesia (Kemdikbudristek-RI) launched the Minimum Competency Assessment (Asesmen Kompetensi Minimum - AKM) program. Together with literacy, numeracy is the minimum competency measured in the AKM. This policy is expected to foster a learning culture that places students as the main focus, as well as the shift of the paradigm from simply teaching the content, to developing the students’ competence in a constructive and adaptive manner.

Currently, there are still many mathematics teachers who are not familiar with numeracy, which is followed by various misconceptions and misinformation. One of the efforts of the SEAMEO Regional Centre for QITEP in Mathematics or commonly called SEAQiM in supporting teacher professionalism is through the International Symposium on Mathematics Education and Innovation (ISMEI). This symposium is initiated by SEAQiM and is held every two years. This activity is a space for disseminating works and exchanging ideas about innovations in mathematics education for teachers, education staff, policy makers, and related stakeholders.

In 2022, ISMEI will be held for the seventh time with the theme being Transforming Education by Reimaging Numeracy Learning. Through this theme, ISMEI invites education practitioners to transform education by reviewing mathematics learning practices to develop numeracy and discussing its potential in the future.

 B. Aims

This symposium aims to:
1. Provide an international platform for practitioners, policymakers and stakeholders in the fields of education on mathematics to share ideas and experiences, learn new knowledge and good practices, and disseminate the latest research results;
2. Contribute to the topic of numeracy, especially in the Southeast Asia region; and
3. Build and expand academic cooperation networks at the international level.

C Participants

Participants in this symposium are teachers, lecturers and other education personnel, prospective teacher/teacher students, researchers, policymakers, and stakeholders in mathematics education in Southeast Asia and beyond.

D. Program

The programs offered by ISMEI consist of plenary speaker sessions, keynote sessions, parallel presentation sessions, poster presentations, and workshops. The theme is Transforming Education by Reimaging Numeracy Learning with the following sub-themes:

- Computational Thinking, Coding, and Robotic in Mathematics Learning
- ICT in Mathematics Learning
- Integrative STEM Education
- Online Distance Mathematics Learning during Pandemic
- Statistical Literacy
- Mathematical Modelling
- Ethnomathematics
- Numeracy
- Curriculum and Assessment
- Higher-Order Thinking Skills
- Action Research
- Design/Development Research

 E. Publication

The conference utilize various media for publication such as pamphlets, social media, invitations, and written notices. All details related to the conduct of the symposium will be broadcast through the ISMEI website.

Selected papers will be published in the ISMEI proceedings, while the 5 selected papers will be published in the Southeast Asian Mathematics Education Journal (SEAMEJ).
