Mac’s Classroom of the Future

TLEIn a recent Hamilton Spectator article I was reminded that how I learned as a kid is probably not the way learning ought to happen today. We sort of knew this already, but here’s perspective from another place:

McMaster University — Classroom of the Future

It reminds me of the HWDSB Transforming Learning Everywhere (TLE) document which a group of us looked at yesterday (again) in our ongoing unpacking of what 21st C learning really looks like and sounds like.

Exciting!

What’s even more exciting is the celebration of learning going on right now in our Cosmetology Lab. The work shown below represents hands-on, relevant, challenging, and creative expressions which cause students to be confidant and curious.

Exciting!

Grateful for:

  • Kristy and her capacity to help students extend their skills and interests
  • Public education — it’s easy to forget how powerful it is that in Canada we really do value public access to quality education
  • CAS and their capacity to stick at it during the tough stuff with kids. I have met some of the most amazing foster parents and can’t thank them enough for their tireless efforts.

Curious about:

  • Mendeley and LiquidText, both products/apps on my ipad that I’ve heard will help me annotate PDFs and keep me organized in grad school
  • what’s the process for getting an ESL translater (arabic specifically) for a student whose parents need to understand some disappointing news
