The Role of the Teacher in the Now Century

For me, the highlight of the 2012 ECOO Conference occurred on the Thursday afternoon.  The last session of the day was a discussion among all of the conference keynote speakers.  Nora Young from CBC’s Spark led the discussion with John Seely Brown, Jaime Cassap, Donna Fry, and Michael Fullan.

The panelists all brought a unique angle to the discussion. It was important to have Michael to put an Ontario context to the discussion and Donna, not only brought Ontario to the table, but the reality of day to day education in her job as principal.

Nora showed her expertise as a host by keeping the conversation moving, on track and redirecting the panelists when necessary.  She had made her own recording of the discussion and parts made Spark last weekend as previously noted here.

Today, the entire panel discussion is available to the world through the ECOO website at this link.  If you were in attendance at the ECOO Conference, I think you’ll enjoy the replay.  If you missed the conference, please enjoy.
