RVS Celebration of Learning – Inquiry

Posted by admin February - 26 - 2013 3 Comments

RVS Guest Author: Richard Gaudio, Learning Specialist

In Rocky View, we are continuing to foster a culture of sharing best practices in teaching and learning through our Celebration of Learning events. This February, RVS hosted its second Celebration of Learning on the theme of Inquiry, featuring engaging and inspiring talks from RVS Learning Specialist Josh Hill, Muriel Clayton’s Mark Turner, Banded Peak’s Craig Churchill and Carmen Harford, and Bow Valley High’s Jason Ness. We also heard from Dave Morris, Associate Superintendent of Learning, who gave a brief explanation of Constructivism. We are pleased to share these talks with our community through our RVS YouTube Channel. You can view the February talks at the links below:

    Rick you have become such an asset to our jurisdiction. Without you, this celebration would not be possible and the caliber of your work goes without saying. Thanks for helping RVS showcase the many talented staff we have who are making invaluable contributions to the children in our communities.

    Thanks Rick, this is great. I was unable to attend the February 13th sessions live as I had a previous commitment. I will be sure to check out the speakers on our You Tube channel.

    I was unable to attend both events but I am so glad they are still available to be viewed. It is so wonderful that our board is supporting this initiative to share understandings and spread the wealth of knowledge!
