ECOO 2011 Reflections

One thing really struck me about this ECOO 2011 — energy. There is a genuine energy in Ontario teachers for change in teaching practice. There is a synergy building in the province, and it was certainly great to be part of the learning.

A few personal highlights:

  • @snbeach & @willrich45 – great keynotes – motivating: be a change agent
  • Trending @dougpete – super group effort
  • Finally got to meet @shannoninottawa F2F – must continue the building school admin capacity discussion
  • Insightful talk by @gcouros
  • Presented my first pecha kucha – wonderful experience
  • Interesting discussions at the OSAPAC booth
  • The OCT: use Social Media tools but don’t put yourself at risk, maintain professional boundaries
  • Connected with new educators, new learning opportunities
  • Noon hour discussion topics – removing barriers, great thinking
  • Chatting with WRDSB Futures Forum Project teachers — next steps, thinking BIG
  • Pleased to have a good turn out for my Facebook in the Classroom session
  • Explored new staff development resources at the PLP booth.

ECOO 2011 was a great conference and wonderful learning opportunity. Thank you to the planners and organizers — take a bow!!! This conference was certainly an opportunity to be WRDSB Proud. WRDSB had a strong contingent attending the conference to learn and share. WRDSB presenters were well received on the wide variety of topics presented – go team!
