Educational Change and School Leadership – Why Technology is Essential in Supporting 21st Century Learners

“Ultimately, the power of technology should be harnessed to support innovation and discovery, not simply aid teaching. We need to engage learners to use these new technologies as designers and creators of knowledge”. Inspiring Education

Dr. Dave Edyburn shares his expertise  about implications and challenges of technology and educational change in 9 short video clips. These professional learning resources are video clips and accompanying learning guides designed for use by learning communities, learning coaches, teacher leaders and post secondary teacher education faculty or as a self-paced study to explore how technology can support student success. Each learning guide is linked to one of the five policy directions from the Alberta Education's Learning and Technology Policy Framework.
