This Week in Canadian EdTech MindShareTV with one of Canada's most innovative minds in education Dwayne Matthews on the Future of Learning
I trust this note finds you well and no doubt looking forward to the holidays! Our team is too! However, before we cross that finish line, I always stress the importance of finishing strong! I trust this issue of our monthly CanAm EdTech Report will not disappoint!
This week I had the good fortune of connecting on MindShareTV Podcasts with two brilliant minds in education, Futurist, Dwayne Matthews and newly minted "Dr." Chris Kennedy, Superintendent & CEO, West Vancouver Schools.  Be sure to tune into their recorded podcasts as they provide excellent insight, inspiration, and hope with a lens on well-being as we grapple with the challenges of in-class learning amidst another COVID variant threat. 
Our top story in this issue highlights a recent school board paying a ransom to hackers as a result of a major privacy breach. To help address this challenge being faced in education be sure to join the C21 CIO national webinar panel I will be moderating on December 15 where we will be taking the data privacy issue head on with the theme >> Future Proofing learning.  
Speaking of which we are putting the finishing touches to Canadian International Future-proofing EdTech Summit Playbook V2 as a holiday gift, along with the release of this year's selection of 21 Canadian EdTech Newsmakers in 2021. Enjoy a 'sneak peek' to our recorded closing keynote by the always inspiring and passionate STEM educator, Melissa Burns in this issue. Please reach out to share a name, or two, of individuals, or organization you feel are worthy of a selection. 


You're Invited! We're thrilled to be celebrating our 4th Anniversary of the MindShare Work & Learning Innovation Centre this coming Tuesday and invite you to join our Hybrid Holiday Party, 4-7pm! Please RSVP! The following week we're honoured to partner with our friends at EdWeb for an EdTech Industry Holiday Book Launch: Publishing in the Digital Age. Please RSVP!


Please don't hesitate to reach out to me and share your success stories, news, research and events with us! We love hearing from you! Feel free to call me at 416-569-2106 if we can be of further assistance with our strategic consulting services.

Twitter Quotes of the Month
"I have a teaching tip. If you’ve been out of the classroom to be a consultant, a coach, to work on your brand, to write a book…don’t stay away too long. If you do, you’re no longer the expert. You can’t know if you’re not there. Things have changed and they need you."
