For the past 2 and a half years I have been fortunate to work with the staff and students at Mamawmatawa Holistic Education Centre at Constance Lake First Nation (2 Musko Rd, Ontario P0L 1B0) in a variety of capacities.
Last year I was honoured to team up with Melissa Lavoie with the Walk With Us project and bring together many interesting learning elements together. It was an amazing experience all around and will always be a very special memory for me.
Have a listen to the podcast to learn about Walk with Us and our process, then check out the the student work and elder interviews by clicking the Walk With Us graphic below.
This blog post features a look at a collaborative coding project at Moffat Creek Public School in Cambridge Ontario. Grade six teacher Vicky McKenna (@VickyMcKenna1 ) collaborated with kindergarten teacher Mark Woodfield (@kindycop) to have her students create a custom program for their assigned kindergarten buddy.
The video includes interviews with Vicki, Mark, digital literacy support teacher Jeff Brown (@jeff_dbrown), student feedback as well as some classroom action.
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).
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the ConnectEd 2017 conference this week, and certainly enjoyable to see so many wonderful people in my PLN face to face for conversations.
A personal highlight included the opportunity to present two different sessions with Jamie Reaburn Weir. In this post, I am sharing the resources we prepared for this Dell sponsored session which focused on setting a context for tackling barriers for change.
Note: This video was prepared from the Livestream archive.
I enjoyed a wonderful opportunity to participate in and present at the inaugural Learn By Design conference hosted at the International School of Brussels. This was a wonderful experience and I enjoyed meeting so many fantastic educators and students.
I want to take a moment to introduce two new friends, Peter (centre) and Fred (left), who are undertaking an interesting project to provide real help to dogs with disabilities.
