Keynote Information

Keynote Title – The Innovator’s Mindset

Presentation Description

Now, more than ever, an Innovator’s Mindset is needed in our schools at all levels.  The focus will be, not only building knowledge, but doing and creating something meaningful with new learning.  In this highly interactive and personalized day with George Couros, you will not only feel inspired and be provided with many new ideas for your work but will be provided the tools on how to connect and learn from this community long after the day is complete.

Keynote Biography

George Couros is an “Innovative Teaching, Learning, and Leadership Consultant”, a speaker, and the author of “The Innovator’s Mindset” and “Innovate Inside the Box”.  Formerly the Division Principal of Innovative Teaching and Learning with Parkland School Division, located in Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada, he has over 20 years of experience as an educator, in a myriad of roles from K-12.  He is passionate about distributed leadership within school divisions, with a belief that creating a collaborative environment with all stakeholders will help to ensure that we best meet the needs of all children.

“By being curious, collaborative, and open to new learning, we can truly inspire our students to not only be prepared for the real world but ensure that they make the world better than it is now.  This is the work that drives what I do.”  George Couros
