Today is Day 11.If you are just starting with us today, you might want to check out Day 1 here.
OSSEMOOC is a project of OSAPAC, and over the past three days, the OSAPAC group has been meeting f2f in Toronto, doing incredible work for Ontario students.
On my way back to northern Ontario, I was reflecting on what a privilege it is to be part of a group of educators so passionate about what is best for children, so knowledgeable about digital resources and so determined to make a difference. I am proud to have them in my PLN, both face-to-face as it was this past week, and over social media, as we work together until our next opportunity for a f2f session.
My Professional Learning Network is critical to my success as an Ontario (OCT) educator.
On August 17 and 18, 2015, CPCO, OPC and ADFO are hosting Technology Enabled Learning and Leading Institute 2015. School leaders from across the province are invited to attend and learn with lead learners in technology education and innovation.
We are partnering with Joe Russo, Technology Enabled Learning and Teaching Contact for Toronto Catholic District School Board to share with leaders the array of supports and resources available to them as they lead learning with technology.
Our most valuable resource in our work as lead learners is our Technology Enabled Learning and Teaching Contact. The Ontario Ministry of Education funds this position in every Ontario School Board. TELTs are provided with rich professional learning opportunities so that they are able to lead the learning in their school boards.
Have your say!!! On Monday May 26th (8:00 – 9:00 p.m. EDT), we will be providing an opportunity for you to learn more about the OSAPAC project on digital citizenship resources and provide feedback to the project team.
The online meeting room will be open at 7:30 p.m. EDT. If you are joining us for the first time, please allow a few extra minutes to allow for the necessary downloads (plugins).
During the last few weeks, we have focused on the topic of digital citizenship. The discussions and sharing of insights and personal experiences have been very rich.
Our professional learning sessions for the next two weeks will be special events.
On Tuesday May 20th, TEDxKitchenerED is presenting an event (7:30 – 9:30 p.m. EDT) centred around “the idea of Fostering Connectivity in the educational space can take on a variety of meanings. While its name leads many to the digital space, it simply means the state or capability of being connected. TEDxKitchenerED will look to highlight the many ways connectivity can be fostered in education.” Check out the speaker list [here].
We hope you will join us for this “OSSEM” event. Watch for a special OSSEMOOC connection!
