CALGARY TELUS CONVENTION CENTRE(CTCC) and HYATT - address and driving directions

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.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. 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.

“On the two school days of your assigned teachers’ convention, you have a legal and professional responsibility to attend convention. If you are not able to make it safely to your assigned convention, however, your collective agreement may include impassable roads or inclement weather clauses that you can access. If your collective agreement does not include language specific to road conditions or weather, you may make use of the personal leave clauses of your agreement in most cases. Please be aware that using any of these types of leave may require you to pay substitute costs, forego a portion of your salary and benefits, or report to your school or another work location in your district.

(Pre-Reg 30) Add Indigenous Voices to your Classroom using Alberta Tomorrow

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This simulation tool allows students to time travel back to 1910 and forward to 2050 to see what their local landscape looked like in the past and may look like in the future. Using Indigenous Map Overlays and Traditional Knowledge Indicators, we bring a TWO EYES SEEING MODEL to understanding environmental and climate change. Indigenous overlays and videos of Elders allow students to explore whose land this was, how it has changed, and how we need to think differently about using it in the future. Students can look at watersheds or Traditional Territories with a Western Science or Indigenous Lens and help Indigenous and Non-Indigenous students gain an understanding of how Traditional Knowledge can be integrated into Land Use Planning.

The platform is FREE and provides the software, videos, 360 VR Tours of the Bow River Watershed and Alberta’s Natural Regions, challenges and lesson plans linked to the Alberta Programs of Study Grades 3-12 in Science, Social Studies and CTS. Works on tablets or computers (phones work but are a bit small).Check it out at www.albertatomorrow.ca
