Educator Network: Resources we love
A digital toolbox by and for Ontario literacy educators - blended learning resources, activities and tools that practitioners are recommending.
On September 27, 2022 AlphaPlus hosted our first Community Gabfest.
The conversation starter for the first Gabfest was Jim Tysick’s video The Way Forward.
Jim is an experienced and innovative literacy instructor who works at the Sharbot Lake location of the Northern Connections Adult Learning Centres literacy program. In the summer of 2022, he participated in the AlphaPlus Wayfinders Maker Space and created a video about changing his teaching styles to increase learner agency and independence. In The Way Forward, Jim describes how he is changing from a “sage on the stage” approach to become a “guide on the side” teacher.
Here are two quotes that inspire and inform Jim’s work:
