Event Details

 

In the new global economy, the jobs that exist now might not exist by the time today’s students enter the workplace. To succeed in this ever-changing world, students need to be able to think like entrepreneurs: resourceful, flexible, creative, and global.
This book unlocks the secrets to cultivating independent thinkers who are willing and able to use their learning differently to create jobs and contribute positively to the globalized society. World Class Learners presents concepts that teachers, administrators and even parents can implement immediately, including how to:

 

  • Understand the entrepreneurial spirit and harness it
  • Foster student autonomy and leadership
  • Champion inventive learners with necessary resources
  • Develop global partners and resources

 

With the liberty to make meaningful decisions and explore nontraditional learning opportunities, today’s students will develop into tomorrow’s global entrepreneurs.

Yong Zhao currently serves as the Presidential Chair and Director of the Institute for Global and Online Education in the College of Education, University of Oregon, where he is also a Professor in the Department of Educational Measurement, Policy, and Leadership. He is also a professorial fellow at the Mitchell Institute for Health and Education Policy, Victoria University. His works focus on the implications of globalization and technology on education.

Organizer

Burnaby DPAC

The School Act (Province of British Columbia) defines the responsibilities and authority of the DPAC as an advisory and advocacy council. It may make recommendations to the School Board through the School Board’s officials or by representation, and provide the School Board with information to assist in decision- making.

The Burnaby District Parent Advisory Council, known as the Burnaby DPAC, was formed to represent the interests of Burnaby parents in the public education system. The Burnaby DPAC is guided by a Constitution, and meets the last Monday of each month. Please note: there are no meetings in Dec, Jun, Jul or Aug.

DPAC is the recognized voice of parents at the district level, and is made up of representatives from each PAC in Burnaby School District #41. These school reps act as a liaison between their school PAC and DPAC, representing the views and interests of their PAC.

Burnaby DPAC’s focus for this year include:

  1. Supporting parent education
  2. Facilitating sharing of resources, knowledge and experience between PACs and parents
  3. Fostering positive relationships between trustees and PACs
  4. Providing meaningful input to the district regarding parents’ concerns and questions
