New School Year, New Opportunities

A new school year brings new opportunities.  Last Thursday I enjoyed attending the professional learning sessions at  Huron Heights Secondary School  and  Sir John A. MacDonald Secondary School  in preparation for our 1:1 chromebook launches this week. The energy was high and collaboration was benefitting all – awesome.

In conversations with principals  Ed Doadt  (HHSS) and  Kathy Young  (SJAM),  I think we all agree that this project serves as a catalyst for visible change, new thinking, kicking the tires on ideas, exploring new practices and sharing our learning collectively and collaboratively. I am very excited to see what opportunity brings.

I thought I would share some of the excitement and conversation from my sites visits Thursday.

I look forward to phasing  Jacob Hespeler Secondary School  into the project in October.

Make it a great year – innovate, learn, collaborate and share.
