way_forward_sign.jpgWelcome to the Leading Our Way Forward Wiki!


This site is available to support the work being accomplished by the district teams attending the Leading Our Way Forward Conference in Edmonton. Within each page you will find information, links and activities related to each of the presenter's sessions. We want all participants to feel free to add to this wiki and the knowledge created by everyone. Use the discussion tab for all conversations when logged in using the conference user account.

This wiki site will remain available for use by conference participants following the end of the conference. Plans are being made to have follow-up webinars to ensure you receive ongoing guidance once you return to your work in your home district.

The conference will offer a professional learning opportunity aimed at providing leaders with the knowledge and tools to effectively meet the changing needs of the 21st century learner.




Pages include:
  • The opening session to set the context for the conversation.
  • The first keynote session by Julie Evans to develop a shared vision of innovation for 21st century learning.
  • The second keynote session by Lynell Burmark to understand a vision for visual literacy.
  • The third keynote session by Jim Hirsch to develop a sense of your district readiness for action and supporting an implementation plan.
  • The fourth keynote session by Bernajean Porter to develop a common understanding of the use of classroom walkthroughs to assess instructional uses of technology.
  • The closing session to pose questions and determine expectation for next steps.
