Sardines @ OSPI
Washington State’s Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) hosts an annual January conference. This year’s conference was focused on Personalizing Education with a special emphasis on mathematics and secondary level. This year my district sent a large contingent of 60 some educators to participate in the fun learning.
The highlight of many for this conference was the keynote of Ian Jukes. His topic was “Futurist Windows on the Future: Teaching and Learning in the New Digital Landscape”
To most of us Edubloggers Ian Jukes is commonly known as the “Committed Sardine”.
He has been a teacher, administrator, writer, consultant, university instructor and keynote speaker. He is the director of the Info Savvy Group, an international consulting firm that provides leadership and program development in the areas of assessment and evaluation, alignment, curriculum design, publication, professional development and change management and more. Ian has written six books and nine educational series, and has had more than 100 articles published in various journals.Many that listened to Ian Jukes are now “Committed Sardines”and may be reading this blog as well as his for the first time.
