Dear Thought Leader,

As I review our Top 10 News Stories for February, I am struck by the excellence and passion of our education leaders at all levels who are garnering national and international acclaim! Collectively, we have a desire to reach beyond our boundries, despite our provincial education jurisdiction. This speaks to our spirit of innovation and desire to nurture leadership. Hence, it’s no surprise that Canada ranks so highly in the OECD PISA Top10 rankings.

If you haven’t already done so, it’s not too late to enter our 10th Classroom of the Future Challenge! Deadline is fast approaching, Monday, February 19th! Qualify to WIN over $50K in Tech prizes!

Once again, we welcome your responses to our annual reader survey! Qualify to WIN Brian Aspinall’s new book, Code Breaker.

Watch for our new look format of the Mindshare Report coming March 2018! Have a wonderful family day long weekend! 

Until next time, keep the digital learning curve steep!
