I'm just back from attending and presenting at the amazing Networks of Innovation and Indigenous Education Symposium (#noiie2019), held in Richmond, BC May 10-11th 2019. What an awe-inspiring experience! We learned so much from many passionate, engaged, student-focussed educators who came from across Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Spain.
Yukon Education hosted two breakout sessions, showcasing some of the outstanding recent Inquiry projects completed by our teachers and consultants. One was themed around primary place-based learning, and the other on adaptive teaching and assessment strategies for rural students. Both group presentations received enthusiastic reviews from the audiences that packed the rooms!

Last week, I attended the CAP Conference hosted in Whitehorse! School Principals from every province and territory came to savour a taste of the Yukon.
Familiar local educators and students shared some of the fabulous things happening in Yukon Education, including an awesome presentation by teachers James Mitchell, Andrea Webber and three Gr.6/7 students, describing the wonderful learning experience of their Bison Hunt.
We also benefitted from some powerful presentations from nationally recognized experts. I really enjoyed the inspirational stories of Gabrielle Scrimshaw, named as "One of 3 Young Aboriginal Canadians to Watch".
John Malloy spoke about using Inquiry to help schools become effective learning organizations, which linked nicely with how Yukon schools are working collaboratively to build School Growth Plans.
And finally, Yukon's own Ilona Dougherty spoke passionately about the unique abilities of young people. The intergenerational gaps are not as wide as they sometimes appear!
