At iHub Learning, we believe that education in Canada is nowhere near what it can be, but this is not due to the efforts of our many fine educators, no. We believe the troubles in education (for example only 34% of students who remain in the system to grade 11 and 12 are fully engaged with school) are due to restrictions placed on these fine educators by an archaic, outdated, mis-aligned system of governance and accountability that is continued by bureaucrats and politicians who want to play it safe.
We know what we want for our children, and it is what employers and post-secondary schools are asking for and wanting, and it is what is needed to navigate life today and the future:
We want our children to become self-aware, self-starting, critical thinking problem-solvers who can create, innovate, and collaborate, and who can communicate and become self-directed learners while acting as responsible global citizens.
The problem is that our Education Systems are set up to create something else:
Today’s education systems were designed 200 years ago, and are set up to create conforming, docile, standardized rule followers who do not think for themselves, but are fed curriculum and tests until they give up on trying to work through and innovate ideas to solve problems to instead seek the one right answer that will give them the highest score on tests and exams.
We will provide you with the following:
Newsletter updates and current developments from across Canada
Static resources like Pdf’s, links to important materials, associate sites, and blog posts, etc.
