ManACE TIN - November 13th in Winnipeg

Manitoba Association for Computing Educators (ManACE) is pleased to announce our next Technology Information Night (TIN), taking place at 6:00pm on Wednesday, November 13th, 2013 in the PSDC Auditorium, 150 Moray Street in Winnipeg.  

This event is free to attend and everyone's welcome to join us!  Not only will you get to see three great presentations, but you'll also get pizza & salad, the ability to network with educators from several Manitoba school divisions and a chance to win some prizes!  

We've got a fantastic line-up for this ManACE TIN:

Facilitated by Zoe Bettess
A growing number of educators have come to realize that Twitter can serve as one of the most important tools in their professional learning toolbox.  But you don't have to follow hundreds of people on Twitter to find value in using it.  You just have to follow a hashtag to subscribe to the thoughts and ideas of like-minded educators.  Zoe Bettess will Skype in from Thompson, Manitoba to highlight #MBedchat, a great new platform for Manitoba educators to connect and collaborate on Twitter! 

Facilitated by Erin Clarke & Jeff Hoeppner
A few months ago, Erin & Jeff launched the #eduphotoaday Instagram challenge for teachers, students and classrooms.  Throughout May and June, dozens of classrooms from around the province (and beyond) participated by sharing thousands of photos based on daily themes.  The #eduphotoaday Instagram Challenge is underway once again with a different theme each day in November.  Find out how easy it is for you and your students to participate in the action! 

Flat Classroom - Global Youth Debates
Facilitated by Eva Brown & Red River College Students
Sustainability is an issue that's been at the forefront of education in Manitoba over the last several years.  Through the Flat Classroom's 'Global Youth Debates' (formerly called Eracism), students in classrooms around the world are coming together virtually to debate issues relating to sustainability.  Eva Brown and a number of her Business/Technology students at RRC are taking on a leadership role with this year's Global Youth Debates.  Through this presentation, you'll find out more about this project and how Eva and her students have become so integrally involved!

Please register to attend so that we can plan accordingly.

Hope to see you at our next TIN :-)
