George Couros

George Couros is currently Division Principal of Innovative Teaching and Learning with Parkland School Division located in Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada.  The schools are from ages K-12, and he loves working with kids of all ages.  He is passionate about distributed leadership within his division, and believes that creating a collaborative environment with all stakeholders, will help to ensure that educators meet the best needs of all children.  You can learn more about George on his own blog entitled “The Principal of Change”. George is also the creator of the “Connected Principals” site because he knew that we can learn so much from a strong team of educators with different backgrounds, as opposed to the view of only one.  It is imperative that as educators, we are learners first.

  1. […] George Couros over at Connected principals writes in his post “They don’t get” – about the frustration people feel when the topic of social media and networking used in the school setting seems to fall on deaf ears. He specifically talks about educators and administrators and I applaud his hard work and support of teachers around the world. […]

  3. Hi George;

    We are looking for tech literate schools to pilot our beta IWB lessons (PK-5). No cost! We just like to hear the feedback from the users. In return, each teacher that pilots the program can keep the sample lessons.
    Here is a video from our webinars.

    Thanks in advance;
