He would be the mentor that would find out new things and SHARE them with the masses. He created an online and paper newsletter showcasing all that he was learning. Brian retired a few years ago but....
Brian continues to learn. He attends every meeting of significance in the province. He attends conferences routinely and was the reason why I met Dr. Tim Tyson and started the 2 Minutes to Make a Difference Project with the Grade 8's at school.
Brian in retirement learns more everyday then most of the teachers I work with in my division. Why is that. Why does a guy who is away from the school setting still want to learn and be part of the mix? Why is he watching K12 Online when the rest of the tech mentors who are still working are not, or are not telling people about it!! You might have to ask Brian Metcalfe over at his blog. Brian was so kind after my recent presentation.
Brian emailed my admin and told them about the presentation and how it was an enjoyable experience. It is nice to have a fan like Brian.
