Man vs. Machine: What about Teachers? – Symposium Highlight Webinar

Join François Guite, Education Consultant from Quebec, as he shares his CANeLearn 2017 Symposium session in this CANeLearn Live! webinar.

Technology and artificial intelligence are advancing at a tremendous pace. Our education systems cannot escape the 4th industrial revolution, which is just starting. Although schools will not go the way of the dodo, at least in the near future, they will have to adapt rapidly.

And what will come of the teaching profession as automation threatens so many jobs?
Will artificial intelligence surpass human intelligence in school?
We already have robots and bots designed to teach and serve as personal assistants; could they someday replace teachers?
Some students have been doing without trained teachers for a long time, and now some schools are experimenting entirely without the latter.
This presentation looks at the technological and social forces that will forever change the structure of schools and the role of teachers, especially those that distance teaching and learning.

Using Curriculum to Drive Assessment (or if you prefer) Curriculum Mapping and Assessment – Symposium Highlight Webinar

Join Terri Reid, from Black Gold Regional School Divison, as she shares her well received CANeLearn 2017 Symposium session in this CANeLearn Live! webinar.

Teachers and Administrators have so much to do in their day that sometimes making those connections back to curriculum seems overwhelming.

  • How can we use curriculum mapping to drive instruction and assessment in classrooms, whether in a face to face, blended or online learning environment?
Teachers who develop curriculum maps learn what and when to assess and the importance of being explicit in their instruction. Let’s talk about the process and the impact that it can have on student learning. Curriculum mapping provides a clear path to student assessment and instruction and gives everyone permission to know when to stop.  Join our conversation to learn more.
