On The Rise is about 24 hours away, and I’m really looking forward to the learning for you and for me. We’ve been planning for a really long time, and I think it shows: I’m not really that nervous about it, because everyone on the planning team has done such a great job.
When you get here tomorrow morning, you’ll register to get your name badge, you’ll pour a cup of coffee, and you’ll join over 500 other educators in the ballroom. It’ll be a little snug, I promise.
At some point, in that massive room, pause and look around at those 500 other Ontario educators. And instead of seeing them as conference attendees, participants and presenters, realize for yourself that those 500 other people are there because they are committed to improving education in Ontario, to improving the lives of students and families, through the use of Digital Tools. That’s why they’re here, and that’s why you’re here. Not to hear about a neat trick you can do with your favourite web service, and not to show the devices your board purchased this year.
We’re all here because we are striving to be better at what we do.
So keep that in mind on April 1st and 2nd at On The Rise K-12: Enhancing Digital Learning. Maintain that focus on improving what we do for the sake of our students, their families, and our future.
