CATC Camp 2017

It was a thrill to have the opportunity to present the CATC camp opening address to this year’s learners and staff. I believe in the importance of growth mindset, pushing the envelope and maintaining relevance. The theme for this presentation is centred around ROI from a classroom perspective.

un musée virtuel

In this post, I am pleased to share the work of Mme Rosemary Berndt and her grade nine French classes.  This year they pushed their approach to un musée virtuel” to a  new multi media and collaborative approach in making their learning visible.  It was a pleasure to work with Mme Berndt and her students in providing support to the project.

This audio clip by Mmd Berndt provides a project overview and professional reflection.  (Note: this is also included in the video introduction).
