Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 50 Participants (First-Come, First-In). This session takes place in a large ballroom environment, with one other session happening concurrently at the opposite end of the room. (Area 3A)

An overview of current trends and how the transformed curriculum in K-12 in BC is supporting the driving of technology integration into practice.

My role is to help teachers embed educational technology into their core practice, with the principles of the SAMR model as a guiding framework.

Our goal is a seamless integration of tools in the learning environment, including strong support for BYOD, private cloud services and a suite of mobile and desktop devices to meet the demands of our learners.

I have two over-arching mottos: "Content creation over App Mastery", and "If Pedagogy is the driver, then Technology is the accelerator".
