Toronto, ON, June 8th 2016 – Today’s launch of Shifting Minds 4.0: Shifting Systems for Learning and Innovation features a simultaneous virtual release on the C21 Canada website and live on –location at the Schulich School of Business at York University at 12:45 PM.
The work continues as C21 Canada develops tools and resources for school-wide and system-wide indicators of change and growth. Today’s launch of Shifting Minds 4.0: Shifting Systems for Learning and Innovation offers new ways to empower change in your organization. “Ongoing sharing by CEO Academy leaders about system-wide scaling across the country has led to resources that encourage collaborative inquiry and honour local diversity needs,” says Karen Yamada, Vice-President & CFO, C21 Canada.
“C21 Canada provides a forum for education leaders to share ideas and build the capacity for system-wide transformation,” says Robert Martellacci, President & Co-Founder, C21 Canada. The seminal report, Shifting Minds 1.0: A 21st Century Vision of Public Education for Canada (2012) identified 7 competencies for leading and learning in the 21st century: creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, character, culture and citizenship and computer and digital technologies.
Shifting Minds 3.0: Redefining the Learning Landscape in Canada (2015) proposed a shift from traditional policy-driven systems toward networks of strong responsive schools with educators collaborating continuously. Six system drivers were identified that can enable the transformation or hold it back: curriculum, assessment, pedagogies, learning environments, governance and community engagement.
