Synergy for Change

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.

Going 1 to 1 Panel Discussion

Last week I had the privilege of attending the 2017 Educational Technology Strategy Summit to share the WRDSB “going 1:1” journey in a panel discussion presentation.

The discussion was moderated by teacher  Andrew Bieronski.  I was joined on the panel by  Ed Doadt (Principal),  Jamie Reaburn (teacher), students Tara and Brooke.

The discussion was well received, noting that there were many positive comments about the journey, the sharing of research and observations and including student voices in the session.

Have a listen:
