Upcoming Events...

It's a busy time of the year, with many technology workshops and conferences taking place across the province. We're just a week away from Minnedosa's annual BYTE Conference, and there are several other major conferences on the horizon, including Riding The Wave (in Gimli) and the MaDLAT Conference (in Winnipeg).

ManACE is pleased to offer a host of workshops and sessions throughout the next few months. Mark your calendars for our next Winnipeg TIN, taking place the evening of March 11th. Details about the presentations will follow before the end of February. ManACE is also planning to host a second March TIN in Brandon. Details will be posted here to the blog and distributed through the ManACE mailing list when available. If you're not currently subscribed to our mailing list, you can sign up for our mailing list now :-)

Thanks to the positive response to our 'Getting Connected' event held at the end of January, ManACE is planning a series of follow-up events to assist Manitoba educators with continuing the journey of getting connected with their own professional learning networks. Participants in our January 29th event found the focused play time with Twitter and Diigo to be very useful in beginning the journey to get connected to like-minded educators. Visit the wiki that was used for our session to access some of the resources that were shared.

Another opportunity worth noting is the upcoming 'Game On Manitoba' conference. Click on the following link to view and share a .pdf with details of this event:

Lastly, the Board of ManACE is working toward offering several 'Winter Workshops' (...or Spring Workshops) this year. If you have any suggestions for topics that you'd like to see included, please feel free to share them through comments to this blog post :-)

Feel free to leave us a note,
