An UNConference for CIS Ontario Educators!

We are excited to announce the 2nd annual CIS Ontario Connects Unconference. Building on the foundation of Cohort 21, and the success of last year, the CIS Ontario Connects unconference provides schools with a powerful day for their faculty to accelerate research and learn from others in these four new compelling strands, selected by CIS Ontario Curriculum Leaders:

  1. Building & Measuring Learning Skills and Executive Functions
  2. Capturing & Assessing Observations and Conversations
  3. Fostering & Integrating STEAM & Design Thinking with students and faculty
  4. Enriching & Augmenting learning through experiential technologies (AR, VR, XR)

Attendees will choose two (2) of the four strands with which to participate. Schools are encouraged to send a team of educators to engage in all four strands and work with them in advance on how to best leverage the conference to support school goals and share the team’s learning upon return.

With a unique facilitation format, participants will have opportunities for many different entry points into the discussions and activities.This unconference will be personalized by design, collaborative in nature, and highly interactive.

This unconference differentiates itself through the commitment to a collective output of the learning to the CIS Ontario community through an post conference infographic – click here to view last years and all conference resources can be found on the website.
