Excellent presentation - Disrupting Traditional Understanding @TorontoPIAC #PIACReadySetEngage
Michelle speaks to the behind the scenes work @tdsb to ensure systems are disrupted to engage parents and caregivers within classrooms in meaningful ways - learning through virtual schools regarding possibilities #PIACReadySetEngage
How are we using this time to reflect? How do we engage everyone? First reflect internally - how have I engaged? What must I intentionally do differently to make space for all voices? #PIACReadySetLearn
What do we need to shift? Yes, the system needs to shift but so do we. #PIACReadySetLearn
Let's use this opportunity to learn - talk about race - engage with each other - build our awareness and understanding of each other "I don't need to silence someone else to be heard" #PIACReadySetLearn
How do we centre voices that have been on the periphery? Let's act... #PIACReadySetLearn
How do we redefine engagement? #PIACReadySetLearn
We have the ability to make a difference in our children's live by meaningful engagement #PIACReadySetLearn
We have an engagement gap we have a relationship gap. COVID-19 has exposed the gap... and now we must do something about it. #PIACReadySetEngage
We must educate to let parents and caregivers know their rights and then we can help them navigate. #PIACReadySetEngage
Home visits - a fact of Virtual Schools! Technology exists to offer multilingual supports - we now have the opportunity to engage with all - let's disrupt and do better #PIACReadySetEngage
We can use this opportunity to open up our school councils - invite all parent, caregivers, guardians in #PIACReadySetEngage
Listen for understanding. Move forward in this engagement possibility. We can do this... Thank you @TorontoPIAC #PIACReadySetEngage
