SEE WHAT OTHERS HAD TO SAY 

Kenora Catholic recently hosted community 2020 Visioning Dinners in Red Lake and Kenora. Find out what participants had to say about the process:

"That was interesting. I have never attended one like this before. That was really awesome to see everyone sharing their thoughts." Nadia Quill, Parent

"What an amazing tool! It was great to scroll through all the replies and see what others had to say. There were some thought-provoking answers. I like that I can go back and access the tool again at home." Randi Casey, Community Partner 

"I thought it was great' the program was easy to use. Thoughtexchange was user-friendly and it was interesting to see the thoughts and ideas of others in real time. Seeing the connections being made on the screen was really powerful; we are all in this together." Kelly MacNeil, Parent

"Slick! Thoughtexchange was so user-friendly. It was cool to see on the big screen the connections being made. I liked being able to look at all the ideas and rate them. I will go on again to try to get through some more before April 26th." - Cathy McQuillan, Kenora Catholic staff

"Overall, it was an enjoyable experience that accomplished a lot in a very short time frame. Thoughtexchange was an engaging tool that allowed individual input within a broader framework. It encouraged everyone to participate, not just the 'noisy' few; and it was a fun way to contribute." - Angela Bishop, Community Partner

"I attended on behalf of Anishinaabee Abinooojii Family Services and I am impressed with the planning and future developments as it relates to children." - Carolyn Sinclair, Community Partner

"I really liked the online tool! Very innovative and a visually pleasing way to gather information. I liked that I could see/engage with the students' ideas with the online tool to gain some of their perspectives. This format allowed me to provide my ideas but the rating of other ideas also had me thinking deeply about others ideas and opinions in a way that other visioning sessions haven't done for me." Darcia Curtis, Community Partner

"I was very impressed with Thoughtexchange! The opportunity to share ideas after the session allows participants to really think about what is important for the students to succeed over the next five years and beyond! I especially like how it connects like ideas." Crystal Alcock, Community Partner

"I thought (the session) was dynamic and engaging. Time flew by, generally I hate strategic planning sessions. It was easy to use and fun as well as thought provoking." - Kelly Williams, Community Partner

"I have never heard of Thoughtexchange before. It's very user-friendly. I love how our ideas were instantly shared with the entire group and that we could rate how we felt about other people's ideas." - Marj Poirier, Parent

"I really enjoyed this and believe there are some great ideas." - Casey Pyykaa, Community Partner

"This platform (Thoughtexchange) provides a more streamlined and efficient way of providing ideas and commenting on the ideas of others by cutting down hours of discussion and conversation." - Ashley Hendy, Parent
