East was thrilled to host the New Pedagogies for Deep Learning “NPDL”
Conference on Competencies on October 9th and 10th, 2018
at the Delta in Moncton. We had over 250 educators from New Brunswick, from
across Canada, and from the United States participate in this event.
two-day conference focused on learning about incorporating the global
competencies into our classrooms, with 17 presentations on best practices by
local and visiting educators. Keynote speakers included Michael Fullan, Joanne
Quinn, David Alston, and Mag Gardner.
Student speakers shared their experiences
of engaged learning, and student performances by Sistema and individual
students impressed those in attendance.
On the second day, registrants visited one of
eight Anglophone East schools to see deep learning in action! We have lots to
highlight and celebrate in our district and province!
