We were delighted to be part of the inaugural Halton Futures Summit, organized by Haltech. The number of technological innovators in our region is truly impressive, and it was a pleasure to meet new ones, and reconnect with those we’ve worked with in the past. Our president, Ben Zimmer presented as part of the 4@4 Continue...

We’ve all heard the urban legend (or maybe the true story) of the university prof who tells his/her class on the first day “Look to your left and look to your right. Two of you won’t be here at graduation.” I think (and hope) that the “survival of the fittest” model of education has, well, Continue...

Encouraging hands-on learning for younger students is a no-brainer.  The thought of a kindergarten classroom with lectures and theoretical lessons is laughable. Even in high school classrooms, practical, applied learning is still seen as a staple, a necessary component when preparing learners for future career paths. However, as a recent Toronto Star article illustrates, many universities seem Continue...

In education, there’s always been push and pull between theory and application. Classroom teachers have the challenge of balancing passing along important knowledge with allowing their learners adequate time and opportunity to develop it into practical skills. Teachers recognize that at some point in a learner’s academic and professional career, they will be recognized not Continue...

Three things happen when you go to an amazing conference: You have a lot of moments where you meet new people and think “Yes! That’s what I do too!” You have a lot of moments where you meet new people and think “Wow! So cool! I wish I were doing that!” You have moments when Continue...

Yeah, but is that what they need? It’s question that comes up a lot with respect to education, especially when addressing the needs of learners who’ve grown up in the ever-changing digital age. Educators and curriculum designers alike wonder what they should be teaching, how they should be teaching it, and what an effective learning environment Continue...

We expect a great deal of 21st century learners and educators. There are career paths open  that didn’t exist decades before, and what and how a person learns changes at a staggering pace. While the actual content and delivery methods of lessons may be up for debate, the fact that everyone involved needs to be adaptable and flexible Continue...

Yesterday, we held an open house, and were joined by a wonderful group of clients, partners, friends, family and community members.

In a perfect world, there would be time enough for an instructor to check in with each of them, and learners wouldn’t be reticent about giving feedback. Some learners seem disinterested, some smile and nod politely when they really don’t understand, and some don’t realize they haven’t got it until long after they’ve left the classroom. Continue...

“In our high-tech labs, we sometimes still see the existence of printed manuals or static documents. How do we engage students even more by delivering online interactive content straight to the student’s device, while at the same time allowing lab instructors to get insights into how well students are doing? We found a solution with Continue...

Whether you’re a classroom teacher for K-20 students, a post-secondary instructor, or a trainer in a corporate or industrial setting, one of the biggest challenges is to find ways of accurately measuring what your learners have actually retained. Not only is it difficult to represent a variety of different learning styles, but constraints on time Continue...
