Fun & Games @ our January TIN

On behalf of the ManACE Board, I'd like to thank all those educators who participated in our recent Technology Information Night (TIN) held in M.E.C.Y.'s Professional Learning Lab. We appreciate your willingness to brave such extreme elements for the opportunity to share ideas and resources with like-minded educators from around the province.

And the pizza was good, too :-)

Over the last couple of years, ManACE has been looking at ways that we can find a larger audience for professional learning opportunities we provide. One result of this is that we've begun to archive content from our TIN presentations so that those who aren't able to attend in person can still review some of the relevent information. Please visit the 'Technology Nights' page on the ManACE website to find out what you've missed from previous TIN events...

In addition to sharing these resources, we'd like to make some content available through the ManACE Memos blog as well. So, feel free to click on the link below to view a click-able slide show from my 'Into The Atmosphir' presentation about the role of video games in the classroom:

(BTW, you can right click this link to download and share the slideshow)

For more information about the 'Girls in Gaming' program that was shared by Reyn Redekopp, check out the Girls in Gaming blog.

And if you're looking for a variety of tools that your students can use to manipulate digital images to create content, check out the Flickr Toys & More page of John Evans' wiki for examples and links to all of the resources that he shared during his hands-on presentation.

If you missed this Winnipeg TIN, mark your calendars for the next Winnipeg TIN event, taking place the evening of Wednesday, March 13th, 2009. More details will follow in the coming weeks.

Lastly, mark your calendars for January 29th. Within the next couple of days, you can check back here to find details of our next ManACE sponsored event - Getting Connected...

Please feel free to leave us a note :-)
