Leadership for Learning in the Digital Age

The future of learning must be human-centred, pedagogy and learning driven, and harness the potential of disruptive technologies.  It must also respect and honour the need for relationships within schools as the primary means for teachers to make informed decisions about student programming.  This presentation will explore powerful models of learning for today’s students and will engage participants in a discussion about:

  • How might leaders in Alberta best harness the learning potential of transformative next-practice new ideas in education?
  • What lessons can be learned from proven traditional leadership practices and from the innovators that are exploring new ideas in traditional systems?
  • How might Alberta cultivate an ecosystem for systematic innovation that can develop and embed powerful new approaches to learning?
