ManACELooking forward to the annual MTS PD Day this year as I will be presenting with Manitoba’s latest Google for Education Certified Trainer, Trevor Poole at a ManACE hands-on workshop – Googly Goodness for Educators on the 19th.


As a warm-up for MTS PD Day, please join ManACE for a Technology Information Evening (TIN), Wednesday, October 17. You do not have to belong to ManACE to attend this free event.

You’ll have an opportunity to network with educators from several Manitoba school divisions and everyone in attendance will receive a parting gift!
