In April, the Manitoba Teachers’ Society is staging a two-day technology conference called Awakening Possibilities. The event will take place at the Victoria Inn and Conference Centre from April 16-17 and features a wide variety of sessions related to technology in education. The two keynote speakers are Steve Dembo (Director of Social Media Strategy and Online Community for Discovery Education) and Chris Lehmann (Founding Principal of the Science Leadership Academy & Co-Chair of EduCon).

Many of our members have requested funds from the SRTA PD fund, but we are at the point of the year where the funds have all been spoken for. However, for those that wish to attend, we have great news from the Seine River School Division. They have two spots available for teachers who wish to attend, and with sessions filling up, there’s little time to waste. If you want to attend the Awakening Possibilities conference, please email Mike Borgfjord at mborgfjord@srsd.ca to see if the seats have been spoken for yet.
