The SB21 Team was very excited to present at the ISTE 2017 summer conference in San Antonio, Tx. The ISTE conference marked the public release of the the LeaderShift 2020 professional learning series which provides prospective and practicing educational leaders throughout the globe with a comprehensive framework based on 6 pillars, 35 elements, and 229 indicators to foster the instructional leadership essential to promote modern schooling and, in turn, best prepare our students for their life and work in this unprecedented, complex and complicated world.

As a means of practicing what we preach, the SB21 Team has also created and aligned a robust online collaborative community platform to support the LeaderShift team members across the globe.
Lastly, we are working on a PD2Degree professional development project with Lamar University and Ramapo College. The goal is to provide an opportunity for passionate educations to participate our LeaderShift program as a means to obtain professional development credits or for post graduate degree credits. For future updates on our PD2Degree program please reference the SpringBoard21 website.
Nicky is currently the co-founder and managing partner of both SpringBoard21 Educational Solutions and Infosavvy21, an international educational consulting firm.
She has been a classroom teacher, a school and university administrator, an instructional designer, a business sector manager, and a trainer and international speaker. At the University of Waikato, New Zealand, she designed and delivered courses and workshops based on research of best practices in teaching and learning.
During the last 10 years, she has made hundreds of presentations in more than a dozen countries. Sharing her time between Canada and New Zealand, Nicky worked as the Director of Curriculum for the 21st Century Fluency Group. She leads a team of international writers in designing lesson plans with embedded 21st-century fluency skills so as to develop real world just-in-time teaching and learning experiences that were relevant to both teachers and students. Nicky is currently the director of the InfoSavvy Group, an international educational consulting firm.
Nicky wants to make a difference where it matters most–and that starts with education. Her mission is to help teachers in different settings and working conditions look beyond their surface differences to discover what they have in common: a restless drive to improve learning for all students. She wants our conversations as educators to shift from “why that won’t work here” to “learn, adapt, share and grow together.”
