CATC Camp 2017

It was a thrill to have the opportunity to present the CATC camp opening address to this year’s learners and staff. I believe in the importance of growth mindset, pushing the envelope and maintaining relevance. The theme for this presentation is centred around ROI from a classroom perspective.

Digging into Change

This is such an exciting time to be working in education.  We are learning so much more – not just more about learning, but more about the change process and how some of the critical elements of culture, relationships, space, choice, technology, empowerment, and of course learning itself play key interactive roles in making real change.

On a recent visit to  Queensmount Sr. P.S.  I enjoyed the opportunity to have a deeper discussion about this with Principal Kristin Phillips as well as see things in action. We captured our conversation in this video.

I have personally noted a few things that really stuck with me from our  conversation will write another blog post to focus on that topic along with what I learned from the the tour.

I am wondering what part of the conversation jumped out at you?  Care to share? I invite you to leave a comment or share via Twitter:  @KristinPhillip3,  @markwcarbone.

Krisin’s thoughts on our conversation: Letting go of teacher control is not chaos

Keep sharing your learning.

Forward Thinking with Jamie Weir

At semester turn around I had a great opportunity to connect with WRDSB teacher Jamie Reaburn-Weir.  After some conversation about student voice, choice and assessment strategies, she kindly agreed to capture the conversation for wider sharing.

Enjoy Jamie’s forward thinking insights in this video.

I look forward to following along the journey where Jamie is leading her classes.

Purposeful Connecting

As I was reviewing materials for some upcoming presentation, I was struck by the insightfulness Silvana Hoxha shared in the interview I did with her in preparation for an OSSEMOOC submission to the K12 Online Conference.

I am confident that you will find Silvana’s message inspiring. Grab a comfy chair and enjoy the message she has to share.
