Teams of teachers and students from Secondary Schools across the region have teamed up to put the information from the innovation forum to work.
The teams will discuss topics to get more students engaged in learning, and express ideas to create a more innovative type of learning.
Last night, Harvard expert-in-residence Tony Wagner and author of Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change the World, spoke to the large audience over video conference and engaged in a conversation.
The outcome was great with teachers, faculty, students, parents and members of the public filling the auditorium at H.B. Beal Secondary School.
Melanie Ferganand is part of the Thames Valley’s Innovation Committee, she says one of the board’s commitments is to provide an innovative culture for learning for students, and this is an opportunity to move forward in that.
She says the day will generate innovation and innovative ideas.
The teams of teachers and students are participating in the initiative at the London Convention Centre.
Principal at H.B Beal Secondary School and Chair of the Innovation Committee, Paul McKenzie says “this is a ground breaking opportunity to bring people together and generate new and innovative ideas about how we can deliver education in the future.”
