Ask the Thought Leaders

Excitement is building for our Deep Learning Lab in Toronto May 1-3

One of the powerful features of this event is to be able to connect, communicate and create new knowledge and understanding with colleagues.

We want to extend that opportunity to anyone who can’t attend the event; here’s your chance!

If you could ask our five DLL Thought Leaders a question, what would it be?

What might you ask

  • Michael Fullan?

  • Daan Roosegarde?

  • Joanne Quinn

  • Alan November?

  • Joanne McEachen?

Post your questions as comments on our  Facebook Page (remember to tag who they are for) an we will attempt to ask as many as possible to our thought leaders over the 3 days in Toronto.

These conversations, and many more, will be broadcast as podcasts here at our Blog.

NPDL Deep Learning Series – A Cross Case Study

These are exciting times. For the first time we see the real possibility for transforming education because Deep Learning, if done well, excites students, parents, teachers and leaders at all levels.

Toward District Wide Deep Learning – A CROSS CASE STUDY reviews the initial NPDL journey of three Ontario School Districts: who they are, what they did, and with what outcomes so far.

This report was funded by the Ontario Ministry of Education.

Find your own Finland!

Having just spent a few (extraordinary) days in Helsinki with the new Finland #NPDL Leads it became immediately obvious that there is a powerful education reform in motion there. The Finnish commitment to excellence, developing more that academic proficiencies is a clear reality, and a hot conversation topic, globally.fincurric

Working with the Leads made it immediately clear that the NPDL tools and processes have the potential to add the “How” to the “Why” and the “What” of edu reform.

As Michael Fullan speaks to us through the blog linked below, simply transplanting any model of education shift is prone to contextual and nuanced challenges, So, acknowledging and recognising our Finnish colleagues work, aspirations, standards, achievements and drive; take heart, ideas and inspirations; seek and find your own Finland!

Education Development Trust Global Dialogue.

On 1 November at 9pm UK time, 5pm Canada time and on 2 November at 8am in Australia and 10am in New Zealand an invited audience of school leaders will again be connecting together across continents in our second live Global Dialogue event.
Global Dialogue brings together schools who are collaborating together to bring about truly school-led improvement programmes. In this event, the schools share what works for them in their local context with others from diverse communities across three continents. Their commentary will be facilitated by leading educationalists Michael Fullan, Tony McKay, John Hattie, Vivianne Robinson and Steve Munby.
globaldialogueAfter the event, a recording will be available to view on this page:

This event will focus on some of the key themes that emerged from the last event, including:
Outcomes focused collaboration
Leadership capability for a network system
The power and potential of middle leaders
We are also privileged to hear from practitioners working in schools, in the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand who will join the event and will reflect on these themes and their own experiences of working in collaboration and will respond to the dialogue as it unfolds.
