Conference helps parents empower modern learners

Conference helps parents empower modern learners

The Peel District School Board is hosting its annual parent conference, co-presented by the Peel Elementary Teachers’ Local, on Saturday, November 3, 2018, at Mississauga Secondary School in Mississauga. 

​After hearing from participants and staff, we are changing the traditional workshop model to an "un-conference" model, where attendees will create their own agenda, and explore all subject areas and experts, as if they were visiting a museum. This format will allow parents to visit and interact with each area and Peel board facilitators.

This free learning event is open to Peel parents of students at all grade levels.

Our keynote presentation will be delivered by Will Richardson, co-publisher of ModernLearners.com, who converges and shares knowledge on modern learning.  Will's talk—Schools on the Brink: How Classrooms are Being Reimagined for a World of Networked Learning—will be split into two sessions during the conference. Parents will learn about the schools, districts, provinces, and countries that are leading this profound redefinition of what it means to be fully educated today.

Reserve your spot starting Oct. 1, 2018​

Stay up-to-date!
