 Middle School Best Practice Conference: 

Inquiry-This is Howe We Do It!

Friday, September 22, 2017

Colleen & Gordie Howe Middle School  

*Sessions are available for All K-12 Educators


Keynote Presentation: HoweTo Create 19th Century Classrooms

No, that’s not a misprint. Technology presents schools with some interesting opportunities and challenges. There are mixed and sometimes competing ideas on the role it might play in learning. At its core, learning is social and a human experience. Howe might technology be used to make us more empowered, more creative, more social and more human? I don’t have all the answers but a few ideas that we can explore together!

Keynote Speaker: Dean Shareski  


Read more on Dean at:

Since late 2004 I’ve been immersed in understanding what the Read/Write Web is all about and how the new shape of knowledge changes how we all learn. I believe teachers and students ought to use technology to connect ideas and learners in safe, relevant, authentic ways to answer questions, share ideas and develop community. Learning can be, and should be, fun and personal. I was fortunate to be awarded the 2010 ISTE Award for Outstanding Leadership in Technology and Education. This honor is mostly a reflection of the great people I work with both within my school division and beyond. My greatest asset is that I know smart people and how to find them.
