At our recent Global Deep learning Lab We had the pleasure and privilege of listening to Dr Jean Clinton, Child Psychiatrist / Knowledge Translator, make connections between our 6 C’s, teaching, learning, stress and “success” Dr Jean elaborates further here: https://thelearningexchange.ca/deep-learning-and-well-being-levelling-the-playing-field-for-all-children/
A couple of Dr Jean’s most powerful statements were that “Teachers create the weather in the classroom”, and that “Every child deserves at least one set of eyes that light up when they enter the classroom……Be that person that ignites their spark.”
Thankyou Dr Jean for your thought-provoking insights, fabulous sense of humor and critical messaging!
It was wonderful to catch up with so many of you at our DLL several weeks ago. Thank you for making our time together so powerful! The collaborative conversations, sharing of insights and resources, and culture of learning together was an energising and humbling experience.
The connections and relationships continue to bloom post-DLL, and we wanted to share a couple of stories that have made it to press.
Burlington-Edison school district, in Washington State, hosted our Netherlands NPDL team shortly after the DLL. The day not only showcased Deep Learning, but also stimulated conversations about creating stronger and more tangible links between teachers, leaders and learners across our Global Network.
One of our SPARK thought leaders, Gwen Keith, was also featured in the news in recognition for her passionate and powerful leadership of NPDL in her region. Congratulations Gwen, for your tireless work supporting NPDL!
