Technology infused pedagogy has the power to transform teaching & learning.  We can now create deeper and authentic learning through the use of digital resources that are now available to both teachers and students. It’s never been a more exciting time for teachers to explore and for schools to stay connected with accessible and current technology to nurture student engagement and success.

MindShare Learning with prize sponsorship by Dell EMC is bringing the 10th annual Classroom of the Future Challenge to schools across Canada; giving teachers and students from JK-Grade 12 the opportunity to participate in an Extreme Classroom Makeover!
