The Atlantic Conference, a professional development opportunity for trustees and administrators in the Atlantic region, will be hosted by the Nova Scotia School Boards Association from November 25th-27th in Halifax. This years’s theme is “Abacus to Internet: What Next?” and will explore various issues surrounding 21st century learning: specifically;
- effective instruction of 21st century skills in today’s classrooms to accommodate a changing workforce;
- how the public educational system is promoting student engagement;
- use of innovative technology in the classroom
- rural schools and 21st century learning
- perspectives and challenges in French language education
Social media strategist Kevin McCann, who, in his career, has lead award-winning communications campaigns, will kick off the conference with the keynote address.
