The year is 2012 and we are well into the 21st century. How many times have you heard that you are a 21st Century teacher? Are you preparing your learners for the 21st century? It’s time to move beyond the term ‘teaching and learning in the 21st century’- we’re teaching and learning in the NOW Century!
With Spring arriving, ECOO has opened up its proposals database to you. Our conference this year will be October 24th – 26th, 2012 at the Sheraton Parkway North Hotel in Richmond Hill. This call for presentations will close on April 23rd.
We’re hoping you’ll take the opportunity to share your experiences with your colleagues from around the province and indeed, the world. We are the showcase for innovation in Ontario and look forward to seeing the diversity of learning approaches involving technology that you can offer to the education community.
Sessions are typically one hour long (but we’re open to your ideas!) and you will have access to the internet and a projector (and a whiteboard if needed). We encourage you to be imaginative in content, process and product. We’re here to support you sharing your story with participants so let us know what you’re thinking.
One Lead Presenter will receive a day’s free registration; you can have as many co-presenters as required (for example, a panel or a class presentation). Vendors, of course, will need to arrange a booth in the coming months. Information for vendors and the opening of registration will be available on our website http://www.ecoo.org soon.
For those of you experienced in presenting, why not consider bringing in a novice presenter to share and support? Developing multiple entry points is not just good practice in the classroom.
