MindShare TV with George Couros on his new book, 'What Makes a Great Principal.' We explore the transformative power of innovation, leadership, and cultivating a culture of learning

Dear Mindshare Learning Community Members,


Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! As we count down the final days to Canada's Schools of the Future Student Innovation Challenge—with only 10 days left to enter—I am filled with a sense of gratitude and excitement for the innovative ideas that are emerging from our brilliant young minds from across Canada. Inspired by teachers and the SDGs, 'real world' problem solving student experiences have a lasting impact and inspire career pathways! In honour of teacher appreciation week we are giving away three Amazon gift cards for early submissions! 


Canadian teachers considering entering the Challenge, get inspired by tuning into the MindShareTV podcast with Award-Winning Educator Heidi Siwak, past Schools of the Future winner! She talks about the impact, the journey and what’s next!


This month, the CanAm Report features both education and industry leaders making an impact around the world. Case in point, the highly popular principal turned author and keynoter, George Couros on MindShare TV who delves into his latest book, "What Makes a Great Principal." His insights into leadership, Innovators Mindset and cultivating a thriving learning environment are truly inspiring and resonate with our commitment to fostering educational excellence.


Moreover, we celebrate significant achievements within the Canadian EdTech community, with two of our homegrown companies, Applyboard and Showbie, being named in TIME’s World’s Top 100 EdTechs of 2024. These recognitions underscore the impactful innovations that continue to propel Canadian education industry forward.


In our ongoing series, MindShare InnovatHERS, Laura Smulian and I had a fascinating conversation with Dr. Anissa Moeini, who shared her journey and vision in founding GoldstarEd. Her story is a beacon for aspiring entrepreneurs in the educational sector.


Looking ahead, Save The Date! EdTech Canada Industry Leaders Meetup on the AI Impact, June 8, 10am @ the MindShare Workspace and online. RSVP to Robert directly. 


Lastly, I'd like to express our collective appreciation for the global perspectives brought by Andreas Schleicher of the OECD on our MindShareTV podcast. His recent insights on the future of AI in K-12 education, will be featured in our soon to be released C21 Canada AI Report at the upcoming C21 CEO Academy Summit in Calgary. The stage is set for a groundbreaking dialogue on how we can best prepare our students for the challenges and opportunities of the digital age.


On behalf of our team, we are grateful for the growing MindShare Learning community, thanks to your collective impact across North America and beyond (over 25 countries receive our eMag!). Special thanks our board of advisors, partners, and team who continue to inspire me every day!


Until next time, stay well and keep the digital learning curve steep! 


With gratitude and anticipation on what's to come! 


P.S. ISTE 24 is fast approaching!  We're proud to partner with ISTE24 and the Canadian Trade Commissioner office in Denver to host our 29th CanAm Celebration of Excellence Meetup June 25th! More details in this issue to RSVP!
