What a wonderful day of sharing, and the day's only half over! Today is the culmination of 9 weeks worth of SMART Board training, sessions, workshops and learning with a core group of teachers, AISI leaders, Curriculum Lead Teachers, Learning Leaders, etc. within the Calgary Board of Education. The focus of day's agenda is the sharing portion -- putting these wonderful SMART products in the hands of the participants and having them create content that is meaningful for them.
And let me tell ya, they've absolutely ran with it.
So many amazing ideas, lessons and professional development discussions have come out of the first half of today, and I'm excited for gear up for the afternoon portion!
In the meantime, I thought I'd share a fantastic video that was shared with the group this morning. I'd seen this before, but a wonderful gentlemen by the name of Al reminded me of it through his presentation and I thought it was worthy of a post on my blog! lol
It's 11 minutes of the background of education and where it's heading. I promise you, you'll be having hours of discussion around some of the points being made as well as the visual imagery that accompanies the great dialogue. Enjoy:
