#AdvoCon2019 Workshop: Mental Wellness In Schools

Ian Landy came highly recommended by our members, and is known for facilitating inclusion using tech as well as his knowledge and experience around mental health. We’re excited to have him, and we hope you will be able to make it to see him speak at Advocacy: Equitable Access to Education, our 4th annual conference held March 29th and 30th at the Civic Hotel in Surrey, BC.

Equitable Access to Education Conference

Ian is Principal at Edgehill Elementary in the Powell River school district and has been supported by his wife and three children as he explores education topics around technology, mental wellness and personalized learning. Ian has been fortunate enough to spend time teaching in classrooms from K-12 and has loved his time as a teacher-librarian! Always encouraging the blending of technology and curriculum as a key method of differentiation, Ian has been a strong advocate for project based learning via #geniushour and Self Organized Learning Environments. His school is currently piloting eportfolios to communicate student learning journeys instead of traditional report cards. Ian has also worked with a number of anxious learners (including his son) and encouraging schools that work with those students who struggle with Generalized Anxiety.
