At the 2014 Small School Summit, local educators are learning innovative new methods of teaching. Educational Consultant and renowned social media expert George Couros said allowing the use of iPods, iPads, Facebook and Twitter in the classroom will help students to experience the joy of discovery and to understand the process of learning.

To demonstrate the power of learning, Couros showed video of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield’s video conference from the International Space Station with students from across Canada. Students were able to sing a song with the astronaut and ask him questions.“Just imagine what a kid can learn about being an astronaut by talking with a real astronaut while he is in space!” The Small School Summit continues today.
