Reaching out for Opinions with Zaption

In mid February, after watching a video called 'The Voice of the Active Learner' during a presentation from the DPCDSB technology coaches, I put together a Zaption designed to find out how educators feel about the rapidly evolving world of digital learning.

Technology in the Core French Classroom #fsl4all #TLLP

So this past weekend a few of the members of our TLLP group and I were fortunate enough to attend and present at the OMLTA conference in Toronto.  It was a great learning opportunity for all of us, and we look forward to bringing back some of the lessons learned to the rest of our group and to begin integrating some of the great things we learned into our own classrooms.  

Some of the presenters shared their slides and resources with the audience.  I really appreciated when people did…
