“In today’s highly connected information age educators have a moral obligation to empower students with the skills and dispositions of lifelong learners, to support and teach them to become creative critical thinkers, collaborative, globally connected problem solvers, and responsible citizens who strive to make the world a better place.”

Please take a moment to listen to this important message from Ontario’s Chief Student Achievement Officer, Mary Jean Gallagher.

  1. To me, there is absolutely no better goal for us, the educators, working with our students than the first paragraph of this post!!! Print it out and put it under the glass writing surface on your desk. Share the video with your PLC / PLN – seriously discussing opportunities!

    1. Thanks for taking the time to comment!

      I was so happy to hear these words. We need to recognize that the world has changed, and keeps changing. The end game of student education keeps changing. Getting better and better at old tools and strategies doesn’t work any more.

      “…educators have a moral obligation to empower students “. Yes we do!

      1. “The end game of student education keeps changing.” OR There is no end for the necessity of learning!!!
