Founder & Conference Chair

DEAR THOUGHT LEADER,

I’m honoured to invite you to participate in our 12th Canadian EdTech Leadership Summit —“Future-Proofing Learning”, October 27-28 (Online).

It’s never been a more critical period in our history to gather with national, international and local thought leaders, and key community stakeholders to reflect, explore, and envision solving some of the most complex challenges in educating our future leaders amidst COVID-19.

The notion of ‘Future-Proofing’ is a forward thinking school of thought aimed at sparking innovative conversations on mitigating future risks, building resilient and agile school systems in the event of another crisis. While the pandemic caused mass disruption to our lives, it inspired new and innovative ways to deliver teaching & learning to ultimately help students thrive.

As a result, we have sought global and national education thought leaders to share their success stories to inspire you as a leader. Our lineup includes remarkable presenters: 

  • Dr. Tracey Burns, Senior Analyst, OECD Education
  • Christopher Usih, Chief Superintendent, Calgary Board of Education
  • Melissa Burns, Award-winning STEM educator
  • Richard Culatta, chief executive officer, ISTE

New this year are the 20 Minute Power Presentations covering key topics from cybersecurity to emerging models of online learning.

Back by popular demand is Remo, our networking community platform that was loved by our delegates last year.

Please don’t hesitate to drop me an email at robert@mindsharelearning.com,
or call me at 416-569-2106 to discuss how we can partner with you to maximize your participation in our national summit.

I hope you will join us for what promises to be a highly engaging and insightful event.

Limited sponsor and presenter opportunities are still available!

Until next time, keep the digital learning curve steep!

Best,

Robert Martellacci – M.A. EdTech
