Have You Checked Out ManACE!?

     Today I spent my first day out of the classroom attending the annual planning meeting for ManACE (Manitoba Association for Computing Educators)

Manitoba Association for Computing Educators

Being that I am almost 4 hours out of the city I don't get to attend many meetings in person so it was awesome to catch-up with those that I only see once or twice a year! Furthermore, we are welcoming four new members to our board so I am adding new contacts to my circle :)

Here are some of the awesome things you want to know about!

1 ) SAGE Sessions
- ManACE is the only SAGE group to offer PD opportunities
  across the province rather than centralized in Winnipeg or
  Brandon! In fact, this year we are offering sessions in:
     - Winnipeg
     - Warren
     - Oakbank
     - Decker Colony School
     - Lorette
     - Swan River
     - Portage la Prairie
- Check out the any of the 17 session descriptions here or
   register for a session here

2 ) SEED Grants
- Every year ManACE offers up eight grants of $900 to promote
  ICT Literacy in Manitoba schools. These grants can go towards
  hardware, software, professional development, etc and are 
  available for early years, middle years, senior years, and admin
  levels.
- This year's SEED Grant applications will be available in November!
- Check out our webpage to read over information from last year
  to get you thinking!

  1. Well every year there is an annual meeting in my company. I love the meeting room area of my company which is very spacious and everything is available there for employees comfort like projector, mike, nice chairs and ac’s. We enjoy doing meetings there sometimes on weekends.
