Another One For The Books... #wttw

Wow, we had a great time the other night! It was nice to have an opportunity to chat with others in the room, and it was exciting to be able to bring so many talented educators into the room virtually from around the world. some of our online participants came from as far away as the UK and Australia :-)

One of the first things that took place during this event was the creation of a wiki (thanks, @charbeck) to record the Twitter usernames of a few Manitoba educators - - if you're in Manitoba and on Twitter, please add yourself to the list :-)

You can catch many of the evening's festivities by watching our Windows To The World uStream recording here:
Many thanks go out to everyone who participated in this unique event...

We'd love your feedback about this event, so that we can continue to provide quality professional learning opportunities for educators around the province, and around the world :-)

Please feel free to leave us a note,

Opening up the Windows (to the World)

ManACE's next event, Windows To The World, is just around the corner. If you're not already signed up to attend this event in person, please register soon by e-mailing me:

If you're planning to attend Windows To The World, you're in for a treat! You'll have an opportunity to network with the people in the room, and then we'll be inviting guests in virtually so that we can connect with a few members of our professional learning networks, including Ryan Maksymchuk, Rodd Lucier, Liz Kolb and Ben Hazzard.

While we'd like to get as many people participating face-to-face as we can, we're also encouraging the participation of our online audience at this event. The backchannel will be coming to the forefront for this unique event.

Windows To The World will be broadcast out to virtual participants through uStream at the following URL:

In addition, Twitter users are asked to tag their tweets with #wttw so that we can monitor backchannel conversations.

Please join ManACE for Windows To The World :-)
