Connected Learners Need Connected Leaders

Todays connected learners need connected school and system leaders.  Further to the presentation prepared for  TEDxKitchenerED about the work that is/needs to be done in the area of personally owned, self directed learning opportunities for school/school board leaders to build awareness and capacity in this area,  we are pleased to announce that  the  official TEDx video is now online.

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].
