Connect 2014: 5 Things to Expect [Infograph] from Canada’s Premier EdTech Conference May 8-9

Dear Thought Leader,

We’re thrilled to invite you to join us as a delegate,  exhibitor, or sponsor at Connect 2014 – Canada’s Learning & Technology Conference in iconic Niagara Falls, Canada!  This two-day national conference connects over two thousand K-12, college and university educators, librarians, technologists, and school leaders with the latest technology resources that support 21st century teaching and learning.  The conference provides participants with an opportunity to attend professional development sessions delivered by innovative educators from across Canada and stroll the exhibit hall to test out the latest technology resources from the world’s leading technology companies and promising start-ups.

“Connect 2013 was a great opportunity for the Toronto Catholic District School Board to bring a group of almost 30 Teachers, School and System Leaders to learn about 21st Century Learning.  Feedback from all attendees was extremely positive and gave them an opportunity to see what others are doing.  It also gave us an opportunity to get feedback on the work we have been doing as a board to raise awareness about the need to change teacher practice.
