recent summer visit to beautiful Banff Alberta included three days
participating in the Government of Alberta's Emerge Conference. The
conference had something of interest for everyone in a school district
from teachers to administrators to IT leaders. Sessions focused on four
areas: teaching and learning, leading innovation, research and technical
practices. West met east in the sharing of system wide plans and
strategies which allow for the innovative use of technology to support
teaching and learning. Presentations outlined not only the details of
Alberta's journey in changing systems but New Brunswick and the State

successes, as well as their remaining challenges, provided much for those
attending to reflect on.

NB3-21C: Creating a 21st Century Learning Model of Public Education Three-Year Plan 2010-2013
"The NB3-21C initiative is a comprehensive set of strategies that will
usher students into the future utilizing their strengths and passions
against a backdrop of a relevant and rigorous curriculum."New Brunswick Department of Education
Watch the video by the New Brunswick Department of Education unveiling the future in their educational system
building block in Ontario's effort to transform its system of education Contributed by Maxim Jean-Louise
Maxim Jean-LouisOntario is continuing to take bold steps
to enhance its school system. It will host this September in
Toronto an international gathering of some of the leading thinkers in the
world on reform of educational systems and it is doing so against a backdrop of
change taking place in other jurisdictions, especially New Brunswick and Alberta.
The Summit has an arresting title:
EDUCATION + INNOVATION = TRANSFORMATION
As one of the highest performing
jurisdictions in the world - Canada sits just behind Finland, the world
leader, on a range of performance measures - Canada has to look at change
carefully and ask itself how it can build on its success and make sure its
young people are best prepared for the twenty first century. There are three dimensions to the
change being explored around the world.
The first is curriculum. Is what
students are learning in school relevant to the world in which they live and
the world in which they are likely to work? Some have argued a case for a new
focus on competencies and twenty first century skills - reading and
writing, science, design, creativity and problem solving, critical thinking,
communication, civic engagement and a strong focus on leveraging technology.
Others have suggested that this is too modest a goal and that the curriculum
needs to be both personalized to meet the talents of every learner and also
strongly focused on the creative and design skills needed to develop products
and services in a global, knowledge intensive world. Whatever view one takes,
curriculum has to be part of the conversation.

Ten (10) Tips for Integrating Technology across the Curriculum in a Pedagogically-Sound Way
Timothy Gard, Educator, Toronto District School Board
Since following a number of Twitter feeds and delving into Twitterdom myself, I've become more adept at writing short, succinct, and somewhat profound - that one's up for debate! - quips about this and that in education. This top ten list is following that trend simply because everyone's busy and everyone wants to "chew on something' without making a huge commitment of time to digest something too deep and ponderous, assuming that I could write something like that! The following list is compiled from my own experience and from the various sources of educational technology literature that I've digested over time. I'm sure that much of what I'm going to write will resonate with you on some level. Regardless, let's make sure that we engage in solid thinking about the 'why' and 'how' of what we're using to enhance the learning experience for our students.

Software Review: Share
I must admit that since I was introduced to Tech4learning's Frames and Pixie products I've been converted to 'fan' status. Tech4learning (T4L) is an apt name for a company that creates technology that when used properly can influence and affect learning. Their latest product is no different! Share is an appropriate name for a piece of software that allows students to create a full multi-media experience showcasing their understanding of a given topic, or their cumulative learning, in a format that can be easily shared on the web, as a run-time Flash presentation or easily on an IWB for a real-time delivery to a student's peers as a cumulative assessment piece.

As we usher in our 3rd year of our digital publication, I'm amazed at the constant innovation in education. One of my favourite technologies these days is twitter which allows you to connect with a vast number of like-minded people to share quick bites of info and links. Here's why twitter is so valuable to me.....just stumbled onto this excellent blog article for EdTech industry folks... The 10 Most Important Business Lessons I've Learned
While the education community has embraced twitter because of its powerful capability for knowledge sharing, I find industry a little slower in the take-up. I'm considering offering a webinar on the topic sometime later this year. My twitter handle is @MindShareLearn . I highly recommend Doug Peterson @dougpete, former Windsor area ICT coordinator, who will quickly enhance your knowledge base. Just Skyped with Brenda Sherry @brendasherry, ECOO '10 conference chair and she shared that the Ontario Ministry now has a twitter address: @ontarioedu. Plus, 100 educators to follow on twitter.

I had the opportunity to finally meet Penny while at ERDI Canada conference in Quebec City, who is the better half of my ERDI Canada industry colleague, Bob Kennedy, Apple Canada Consultant. Speaking of Apple, I had an opportunity to catch-up with Karen Ritcey, K12 Marketing manager recently. I mentioned our podcasts are now available on iTunes and she reminded me that educators should take advantage of the vast resources available on their Canadian site.
