ECOO 2112 Theme "Learning in the Now Century"

The year is 2012 and we are well into the 21st century. How many times have you heard that you’re 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!

Pre-Conference Day (Wednesday)

We are bringing back the pre-conference sessions. Wednesday, October 24th will be an opportunity to attend a number of hands-on events. We are proud to announce that we are working with a number of subject associations including:

  • Ontario School Library Association
  • Ontario Association of Geographers and Environmental Education
  • Ontario Association for Mathematics Education

As well, the ever-popular hands-on Minds-on Media will be offering a full-day of sessions, and the National Film Board will be offering workshops on animation.

Attendees may select a morning and an afternoon session to attend.
