Nov 7, 2022

Brian Aspinall is a former classroom teacher, current educational speaker, and university instructor at York University in Ontario. He's from Ontario but leads workshops and other EdTech-related courses for educators all around North America.

Key Takeaways:

  • People need to get their stories out about how to change education.
  • We need to get out of our silos if we are to grow and and take opportunities to improve ourselves.
  • Educators need to get on social media, specifically Twitter.
  • We have made time a constant instead of education and learning.
  • Learning has to be about pursuing your passions.
  • Far too often in education we focus on weaknesses. When students get out of school they will be focusing on their strengths.
  • Going gradeless changes the verbiage from "what did I get" to "can I try this"?
  • Why are we always preparing students for more school instead of life?
  • The only strategy guaranteed to fail is not trying something new. If we fail to change how we educate students we are failing society.
  • Fear is the common thread holding us back at all levels.
  • Leave your ego at the door.
