Heidi Siwak

Heidi Siwak has made it her life’s mission to make learning more exciting, more engaging, more collaborative and most of all … more outside the classroom!  Harnessing the power of technology and social media, Heidi is creating brand new models of learning and teaching, and uses her Grade 6 classroom as a laboratory in which her students teach her as much as she teaches them.  Using platforms such as Twitter, blogs, YouTube, Skype and gaming Heidi and her students are finding ways to connect with experts around the world, test the validity of information and ideas, and expand the scope of intellectual exploration and creativity.  And, they are having a ton of fun while they are doing it.  The results have been astounding and inspiring. After 20 years as an elementary and middle school teacher of Language, Social Studies and French, Heidi is developing a new understanding of what it means to be a teacher in the 21st century. She shares her discoveries through her blog, “21 Century Classroom: The Amaryllis”.  If she can do this, anyone can!
