Parkland School Division - Learning Leader Project
 As Parkland School Division moves forward with the Learning Leader project, we will consider building capacity with teachers in a few different areas: 1.Mobile Devices in the Classroom2.Cloud Computing3.Personal Learning Networks Several of these objectives are outlined in the2011-2012 Horizon Report. The purposeof the Learning Leader Project is to develop a cohort of people who are not only buildingunderstanding in these areas, but who are also leading their own staff in some professionaldevelopment. As “Learning Leaders”, this cohort will learn about these emerging technologiesand help to identify ways that they can share this learning in a more open way with their respective colleagues. This helps to move beyond the idea of a “one size fits all” as theseleaders in conjunction with their schools, can develop ideas of how to best develop theseinitiatives within their own school. At the beginning of the project, learning leaders will be given a school division owned iPad to beused by them within their school. It is necessary to understand that this is property of ParklandSchool Division, but is to be used mainly by the learning leader. They are free to share thisdevice with their own school staff members at their discretion. Once the cohort begins, there will be 6 -1.5 hour sessions delivered throughout the year at 4-530 at the Center for Education. Learning Leaders are expected to be at all sessions. For now, the session dates have not been designated, but they will be spread out over a 5-6 monthperiod. The sessions will be on the following topics but could be changed based on division need: 
1.iPads in the school.2.Blogging as digital portfolio and reflection tool.3.Using Twitter as a professional development tool.4.Social Bookmarkin5.Mobile Devices6.Sharing ideas
 At any time during the year, learning leaders will be expected to deliver two sessions to their own staff in consultation with their principal. This can be done on either a PD day to all or aportion of staff, or else could be delivered in short sessions after school. This is left to thediscretion of the learning leader in consultation with the school principal. Learning leaders will also be asked to blog a minimal amount (1-2 times per month) to sharetheir learning, both ups and downs, to help build both an online and offline component for thiscohort group. Through this project, we plan to work based on the “cohort model” idea where our learningis shared by one another, helping to build leadership capacity, while also helping to createopportunities for networked learning and self-directed professional development. This is notabout technology, it is only the medium. This is about
and we want to ensure that we
