This Time – Technology Matters but Teachers Still Matter More! | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Tom D'Amico, the Superintendent of Human Resources with the Ottawa Catholic School Board, discusses how his district has met the needs of today's digital learner by focusing on the relationship and scaling of personal networks. Teachers do not dump kids in front of devices. Instead they receive yearly instruction on digital citizenship to model behaviors for students and use researched-based practices to help students learn.

How many can you do?

I ran TeachMeet style CPD last year (in my own time) explaining and showing how to incorporate into the classroom or PLN; much of which was not taken on board. I covered and could do all 36!

Well done Linda. Sorry the question sounded like an attack...it was ment to be a general question for everyone :) How frustrating that all your hard work fell on deaf ears. You can only keep trying.
