At the end of the first day of CATC by the Water I caught up with Donna Miller Fry (@fryed).
We spoke about technology and education. As well as how the world is changing and that as educators, we need to be looking at ways to prepare students for a future where Info Tech is going to be very important.

CATC by the Water is a WRDSB Professional Development retreat for teachers to work with other teachers to develop and refine good pedagogical practice. My first interview at CATC by the Water is Herman Kwan (@educatorkwan) who is trained as an Engineer and teaches both Math and Physics. I was really impressed with Herman’s joy for learning and his love of popular culture.
On July 13, I participated at our local Twitter Chat #PubPD. There were 14 of us discussing the value of coding in schools both “IRL” and on Twitter. One of the people I had the opportunity to speak with was Alanna King. I asked her 3 questions and she shared with me her passion on participatory culture and critical thinking.
