School Leaders Sharing their Learning on 21C Pedagogies
Once again, the TELL Institute provided a comprehensive selection of sessions to learn about technology enhanced innovation and 21st century pedagogies in schools across the province. Principals and vice-principals presented on a variety of school-based initiatives such as agents of change for innovation, principals as connected leaders, educamp strategies for staff learning, collaborative inquiry and mathematical learning enhanced through technology. Participants found the learning sessions fun, informative and jam-packed with ideas to bring back to their schools in September.
- Very practical workshops involving GAFE and integrating a variety of strategies for meetings
- I was inspired and empowered by the sessions as they sparked new ideas and energized ideas that were already germinating in my own skillset/toolkit
- As a leader I learned how to effectively use of the technology for PD and infuse it throughout day to day operations of the school which I can now use in my school to model the use of technology for learning and collaboration.
- The institute reinforced the critical role the admin team plays in embracing and supporting the 6Cs of deep learning. It also provided concrete examples of how we can enhance professional learning in our school through the effective use of technology.
