Measuring what Matters: Health
Join our Webinar with SickKids' Dr. Bruce Ferguson, and have your say!
People for Education is embarking on a five-year project to broaden the Canadian definition of school success by expanding the indicators used to measure progress.
And we want to hear from you!
In Ontario, we currently evaluate school success using assessments of literacy and numeracy. While these skills are critical, the evidence is clear that to prosper in the 21st century, students need much more than the 3 Rs.
We are hosting a series of FREE webinars with leading experts to explore how success could be measured in important areas like health, creativity, citizenship or school climate.
The first webinar is on February 5th, from 7 to 8 p.m., Dr. Bruce Ferguson, a professor of psychiatry and public health at SickKids Hospital, will lead the discussion about health. What do we mean by health? What should students know and be able to do that would give evidence of their health? At the school level, what is evidence that schools are promoting and supporting studentsâ€™ health?
