| || Reminder: Join the I4PL conversation on our new Purpose Statement |
We are inviting members to take part in a week-long, interactive discussion on Thought Exchange, April 4th-11th. Thought Exchange is a B.C. start-up that has created software for real-time and asynchronous interaction among large groups, allowing them to up-vote and down-vote ideas thrown out by group members, while remaining anonymous. It has been used for community consultation, to get feedback from employee levels that might otherwise be shy to share their real thoughts, and for 360 processes. Board directors, Chapter leaders and I4PL members will be invited to participate in an Exchange that flows through three steps:
1. Share – answer open-ended questions about the I4PL Purpose and how we embody that through our actions
2. Star – review ideas from other stakeholders and rate the ideas you like best
3. Discover – learn what is important to the community as a whole
I4PL members will receive an email tomorrow that will include a link and directions on how to participate.
Congratulations to the members who achieved their CTDP designations in March!

Do you have friends or colleagues who you’d like to introduce to I4PL?
Here is a great opportunity for a non-member to experience one of the many I4PL benefits!
We would like to give non-members a taste of what I4PL has to offer, and one of our most utilized and loved benefits is our monthly webinar. Typically this has a non-member cost of $50 plus tax; with this special invitation, you can ask non-members to experience our April 10th webinar for free.
How: Non-members will need to set up a profile on the I4PL website, and then they can register for the event here. 48 hours before the webinar, they will receive a confirmation email from ZOOM, the webinar platform, with the dial-in instructions.
Webinar: Optimizing the Online Learning Experience, Tisha Parker Kemp

These events count towards 1 credit hour each for certification maintenance.
Please note that there are two steps in the registration process. First, you are required to register on IMIS (The I4PL website) and then the second step is to register on the ZOOM platform. The second step will be sent to you 48 hours before the webinar that will then send a confirmation email with the dial-in instructions. For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

| || Performance and Learning in the News|
When was the last time you learned something new? Something significant? What drove your learning in those instances — your inner urge? Or an external nudge? Or an inner urge arising out of an external nudge? If these questions have not crossed your mind, you are missing out. Simply put — learning is growing!
The mark of effective training is the ability to connect with learners and grab their attention. Knowledge acquisition happens faster with a captivated audience, as do the desired changes in behavior and performance that come as a result. That being said, how can you best connect with your audience? What can you do to make sure that your training earns and holds their attention? Integrate video into your larger learning ecosystem.
I get this question quite often — I run an AI powered college and career readiness platform, which has lots of automation to make counsellors’, students’, and districts’ workflows a lot more efficient. However, the word “automation” has a very negative connotation in education, more so than in other industries. When you mention automation in a school district (it obviously depends on the culture of the community), it is as if you are not only destroying their entire Maslow’s hierarchy pyramid from the very bottom, but also destroying their students’ future by taking away all the jobs. I get where the sentiment comes from.

In nearly every business function, wheels are turning as the data and analytics train picks up steam. Many executives are on board with a heightened focus on data-driven decision making. They're expecting key questions to be answered, backed by data. Sales, marketing, customer service, and other key functions are working hard to advance their data and analytics strategies. If you work in learning & development, at some point you'll need to do this, too.
