WRDSB Learns 2016

This has been an amazing week of learning and sharing at WRDSB. Under the leadership of the Digital Learning Steering committee a 3 day event was planned to involve a team from each school attending one of the six half day events to reflect on current status, attend breakout sessions to look at new, innovative and engaging practices, and consider next best steps on a site by site basis.

I invite you to check out the learning captured through the  Storify  of the twitter stream from the 3 days.

I will be sharing my learning through a series of upcoming blog posts. Additional events will be planned in the WRDSB Learns series this year.

#GAFEsummit London Session Resource

Today’s post shares my resource prepared for #gafesummit London ON (May 28/29, 2016. It was a great day of learning, making new connections and of course had many of those special ‘sparkle’ moments when you meet an online connection face to face for the first time. This particular summit had a special connection for me as a Saunders SS graduate.

A context for the discussion:

The class led planning for the day allowed for a wonderful opportunity to bring students and a variety of forward thinking educators together for an insightful live broadcast conversation.  Hats of to Ms. Weir for facilitating  a rich and deep learning experience for her class.

I look forward to further interactions with the class to learn more about their perspective on the event.
