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.

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.
Today’s post shares the resources from the “Ready to Get Social” session I presented with Mary Hingley at the WRDSB SSPD session.
There has been two awesome GAFE learning events in Ontario (Waterloo Region and Thunder Bay) over the last two weekends. I appreciated the opportunity to team up with Donna Fry, Provincial Capacity Building Lead to present workshops at each summit.
The presentation slides from our sessions are published below along with links to resources developed by the OSAPAC committee.
a) Digital Citizenship Resources for Educators
b) Digital Leadership Resources for Administrators
c) Digital Leadership Support for Education Leaders
On Friday April 22nd I am presenting a “Let’s Get Social” workshop with Mary Hingley as part of our support staff professional learning day.
We will be focusing on “getting social” from a photo sharing perspective. Our plan was to include an example of a crowd sourced photo share.
We invite you to contribute a suitable photo that you took to this Google Presentation. Thank you for considering this opportunity.
Today’s post shares the recordings of two streamed conversations from EdCamp Waterloo (2016). Many thanks to the event organizers for a rich day of learning and sharing.

I appreciated the opportunity to participate as an online panel member for Jamie Reaburn’s (@msjweir) class hosted discussion about Future Learning with: Dean Shareski, Donna Miller Fry, Brenda Sherry, Karen Beutler and Geoff Williams today.
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.
