The Challenge to Change - From Vision to Action in Canadian Education 2014 Regional Workshop Follow Up Report

This report shares the anecdotal research based on feedback collected from over 700 educators, students, and education stakeholders – from across Canada – on their visions for what school should be, the barriers that stand in the way of achieving those visions, and some actions that could overcome these barriers.

A broad range of barriers – from constantly changing curriculum, assessments, and orientations to antiquated timetabling, lack of resources for classroom innovation, child poverty, a fear of change (initiative fatigue), and of being judged by peers – are but some of the anecdotal data analyzed in this report.  #CanEdChange

By video-capturing one big idea on how school could be different, teachers have a chance to win a trip to Toronto to share it with CEA.
With a brand new school year rapidly approaching, we know that teachers want to engage their students in relevant meaningful learning right off the bat. The Canadian Education Association (CEA) has a contest to help make this happen – The Shaping Future Classrooms Challenge can help drive classroom conversations about how teachers and students would shape future learning environments.Dr. Gregory Lowan-Trudeau’s research has the potential to instill critical understanding of Indigenous ecological knowledge, rights, and contentious natural resource development issues among teachers and students.
