Upcoming TIN - February 10th, 2011

Consider yourself invited to ManACE's next Technology Information Night. We have an exciting evening lined up for February 10th.

If you've never been to one of our TIN's, you can expect to see three great presentations, enjoy some pizza, salad and refreshments, and network with colleagues from around the province - all for the low price of just $5 :-)

Here's an overview of what you can expect to see if you join us:

The Blurred Images Challenge
Students, teachers & committee members will come together to provide an overview of the Blurred Images challenge. Manitoba's contribution to the 2010 Media Literacy Week has generated a great deal of interest across the nation. This session will highlight the Blurred Images kickoff event and let you know how you can participate in the Blurred Images Challenge.

When Teachmeet Comes To Town
This presentation will introduce participants to a growing trend in providing meaningful professional learning opportunities. Find out what can happen when you get a room full of people (...not just educators...) together to share ideas and information. While Teachmeet originated in the United Kingdom, it's now hopped across the pond, with Winnipeg hosting the first Canadian Teachmeet. James Dykstra & Joel Ralph will share why and how they brought Teachmeet to town.

The Mobile Smackdown
Are you still holding off on investing in your first smartphone? Or are you looking for a 'better' mobile device - one that has more features or better suits your lifestyle? The purpose of this session is to highlight the features, capabilities & potential uses for some of the leading mobile devices currently available: Androids, Blackberries & iPhones. Participants are welcome and encouraged to add their own voice to the great mobile debate :-)

February 10th - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Manitoba Education, 1567 Dublin, Winnipeg


We hope to see you there :-)
