PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.

The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

We graduated from University of Alberta 12 years ago now, and have been in a variety of roles. Through our combined experiences, we have implemented various time saving techniques as well as utilize websites to help maintain an overcome the mountain of expectations of our profession. We've put into practices several things that help us stay sane and caught up with the ever growing "MUST DO!" list. Connecting Google Classroom with outside websites like Pear deck, GoNoodle, ZipGrade, Flippity, Orange Slice, Classroom Economy and Microsoft OneNote. All of these websites and tools help keep us organized, and foster a greater sense of student ownership and participation in our student's learning. With this session, our hope is that we help teachers (new and experienced) who would like to implement simple and engaging systems into their teaching. We feel like this session would be most beneficial to new educators that are just entering into their career. The last part of the session will be playing and experimenting with these websites and sharing beneficial resources - breaking up into smaller groups to have some collaborative time! We promise that you will walk away with something wonderful to use with your students on Monday morning. **PLEASE BRING TECHNOLOGY TO THIS SESSION!!**
