Last week, the district embarked on a visioning process with the entire community to discuss the future of learning in Langley. Over 300 different stakeholders (parents, teachers, support staff, administrators, trustees, district staff, community partners and students) came to talk about all the things our educational programs are doing well to support success and what we may want to change to ensure success for a world that is changing at a rapid pace. To help kick off the conversation, we watched a short video called The Future of Learning in Langley that outlined the many ways the world is changing and the importance of everyone being part of the conversation as we move forward in preparing our children to experience success in our schools.
It is important that we engage in the conversation here at West Langley. We have done a lot of work in the past couple years on our vision of “engaging students in authentic learning empowered by technology.” So not only do we have much to contribute to the district conversation, but we would also benefit from the feedback of the collective. The mindset at West Langley is already at the place necessary to have a meaningful conversation about where the world at, where it is heading and how we can best support our students on that journey. As we share and discuss along with the entire district, we will be able to move our mission forward even more.
We would love to hear your reaction to the video link above. Please be sure to check it out and then give us your feedback. You can comment below, send an email to Mr Davids, stop by the school to talk. Also, at our next PAC meeting on November 19th, we will be talking as a group about what it all means.
