After a successful weekend of learning at #GAFESUMMIT Ontario in Kitchener last weekend, OSSEMOOC is heading to Thunder Bay this weekend for their first ever Google Apps for Education Summit, hosted by Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board.
OSSEMOOC will be sharing all the great ways leaders use technology to streamline their workload. We want to share ideas with our northern leaders. Please contribute to the list of ideas below.
Your contributions will appear within 5 minutes of submitting the form.
Thanks for helping all leaders learn from your work!

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.
As you look at the article, consider the chart that compares analog and digital leaders. While this article is for business leaders, we see many words that are bubbling up in education conversations today: “fail”, “ideas”, “multi-disciplinary”, “ecosystem”, “innovation”…
Today we are building on some of the learning you have been doing in this series. We have focused on a number of tools to help you connect. We hope that you are continuing to set aside 10 minutes each day to connect through one of those tools, or to learn something new with us.
This series will continue to exist on our website even after November 30. You can work through it at a pace that suits you. If you find it helpful, please spread it to your colleagues. Use the link at the top of this page to suggest other topics you need to learn about, or simply post a comment on the blog asking for help. The whole purpose of OSSEMOOC is to support education leaders (formal and informal) in getting connected and modelling the learning we want to see in our “classrooms”.
Yesterday we looked at how to access and build your Google Drive so that you can share your documents, images, spreadsheets, presentations and resources with others. Google Drive allows you to easily collaborate on any topic with those on your team.
How are school and system leaders around the world leveraging this method of collaboration?
Take ten minutes today to explore some of the possibilities that will help you to transform the way you do your work and model the learning for those in your sphere of influence.
If you are already using Google Drive in your practice, please share how by posting this on your blog and sharing the link on Twitter under the #ossemooc hashtag. Or, please share how you use Google Drive in the comments for this post.
Let other leaders see the power of collaborating online!
