Dear Thought Leader,
To question whether to embrace STEM or STEAM is no longer an option in education. This global movement has caught on in Canada with a storm (pun intended!).
Our Top 10 is a testament to the passion educators share across Canada in implementing STEM based learning. Brian Aspinall is a great case in point. Be sure to checkout my video interview with Brian, who is one of the most inspirational and engaging teachers I’ve ever met!
Innovation is no longer an option for provincial, district and school leaders. Career opportunities will no doubt be a driver in accelerating the pace of change in this regard. As a member of the national ICTC Education Task force, it has provided me with a deeper appreciation of the need for all of us to do our part in adopting an ‘innovator’s mindset’ to help our youth prepare for careers of tomorrow.
It’s hard to believe C21 Canada recently celebrated its 5th anniversary! Be sure to checkout the release of the C21 Spiral Playbook. It’s an honour to be a part of the organization. We’re always looking for passionate leaders from education and industry to join us!
It has never been a more exciting time to be in education in Canada. As leaders, I challenge you to inspire your colleagues, be it in education or on the industry side of the ledger, to step-up and embrace the innovative spirit that is helping nurture and engage today’s learners for a brighter future.
