Bridges to Learning 2010... Wow! 0

Thanks to everyone who made this year's Bridges to Learning conference such a success. Mark your calendar for 2011 -- May 12, 13, 14th. Thanks to everyone who helped make it a success! There were presenters and attendees from every region of Canada. Particularly educational and inspiring were our student presenters and volunteers. Thanks to the families who shared with us their personal experiences with technology in their schools. Over a thousand users chose to live stream presentations from the Yukon to Newfoundland. We've heard from many of you that you watched the presentations with larger groups. If you'd like to share your experiences or comments about the live streaming please contact Bridges or a leave a comment. A special thanks to the students and faculty of the Fanshawe College media program who were responsible for the video and sound for the live stream.

Erickson Koppenhaver Course – Register Early! 0

Registration for Karen Erickson and David Koperhaven course, Literacy and Alternative Augmentative Communication Course, is now open. This is the second time we’ve brought it to Canada. The reviews from the course two years ago (there’s a one-day follow up a year after the course) were glowing; it’s a fantastic experience. It is a lot of work; satisfying and intense. Be prepared to work non-stop for that week, basically packing a semester of learning into a single week. That’s why we strongly recommend you stay on-campus even if you live in the GTA. There are assignments to do after each eight hour day. Keep in mind that there are only 30 spots and for the course and last time it was offered, it was full with a waiting list, so register early!
