Join us [here]  to discuss ICE (Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship) in the Specialist High Skills Major program in Ontario.  David Sornberger,  District Principal of School Improvement with Trillium Lakelands District School Board,  shares the work his board is doing with this program.  We encourage you to join in, learn, and share in this conversation.

We look forward to this conversation Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at 8 p.m. EDT.

What Innovative Practices Have You Observed?

March is Innovation and Creativity month in the OSSEMOOC community.

Last Tuesday evening, we took time to explore the ICE protocol being introduced to SHSM students in Ontario (in partnership with the Rotman School of Management).

ICE is Innovation – Creativity – Entrpreneurship.

How well do we introduce these concepts to students in Ontario?

What are the differences between Innovation and Creativity?

What are the important aspects to share with students?

These are some of the areas we explored.

On Tuesday, March 10, we will have a number of education leaders sharing their observations around innovative practices in classrooms.  This is not earth-shaking innovation, but simple, doable, innovative thinking around improving the conditions for learning for students in Ontario.

Be sure to drop in and share your stories and to hear how Ontario is moving forward with innovative thinking.

A link to the meeting (Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 8 p.m. EST) will be posted here.
