This Week in Edtech MindShareTV Live Podcast from Education Research Development Institute Palm Springs with Sage Salvo founder, Wordsliive, Award-Winning Music-based Literacy App, Rotman UofT MBA alumni
Dear Thought Leader,


Happy Valentine’s Day! One of my BIG takeaways from the Education Research and Development Institute last week is the importance placed on relationships in education by leaders. Related to that and this special day, a recent Harvard study revealed that the top determinant to longevity is….drum roll please, ‘positive relationships.’ #1 over diet and exercise.


Although this notion of positive relationships may be obvious, we are all guilty of neglecting our family and people around us. On this special day, make a point going out of your way to show your love and caring for people who you interact with. It will go a long way in paying its dividends! Pun intended.


It was an honour to return to the ERDI Winter Institute to share the Top 10 Trends shaping the future of education. As an expert network advisor, I had the opportunity to interact with education and industry leaders from across north america and beyond. Kudos ERDI on an excellent professional learning institute, and to the Consulate General of Canada Los Angeles and New York for supporting several Canadian EdTech startups including: iBlum, StemMinds, Peekapak, Cyber Legends, Studyo and Vireo. You made Canada proud!


Not unlike Canadian actors, singers and comedians, EdTech startups tend to go into the U.S. first to validate their technology before achieving success in Canada. We need to do a better job at embracing our home-grown innovation. Let’s celebrate our innovators and take more risks in test driving their innovative solutions!


Be sure to have a listen to Sage Salvo’s lead MindShareTV interview that is a groundbreaking technology meeting students where they are at with their passion for music.


I hope you enjoy this week’s Top 10 Canadian EdTech Report powered by MindShare Learning.


We are taking our Top 10 Trends on the road to share with leaders and EdTechs alike in a workshop format to support. Feel free to email, or call me directly to discuss how we can support your digital transformation strategy, or edtech growth plans for 2023!!


Thank you for the inspiration and kind feedback that motivates our team to provide you with mission critical research and insights to optimize your learning and technology planning and implementation in the classroom and across your school district.


Special thanks to our team and advisory board members for their incredible commitment and support in raising the bar of excellence each week!


Until next time, stay healthy, stay safe and keep the digital learning curve steep!
