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 of October.


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.

Our first ManACE TIN of the 2018/19 school year will be held on October 17th at the PSDC Auditorium, 150 Moray Street, Winnipeg. Not only will you get to see three great presentations, but we’ll also order some munchies (pizza & salad) and provide a selection of delectable looking edibles! You’ll have an opportunity to network with educators from several Manitoba school divisions and everyone in attendance will receive a parting gift!
