OAGEE is pleased to announce the 2016 Fall Conference at Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario on November 11 & 12. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Power of the Map’, reflecting not only that it is the International Year of the Map, but also the importance that maps play within the geography curriculum and classrooms in Ontario.

Registration to the Fall Conference will include:

Two days brimming with inspirational and highly relevant professional learning opportunities;

  • A powerful keynote address from Helen Scott, Director of the Canadian Network for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, and an epidemiologist at the University of Toronto;
  • Access to the Marketplace, featuring the latest geographic resources and services;
  • The revealing of Canadian Geographic’s newest Giant Floor Map – Natural Resources Canada (celebrating the significant role GIS and geospatial technologies play in our day-to-day lives;
  • Unlimited networking opportunities with over 200 educators, education leaders, and exhibitors from across Ontario.

Registration for the Fall Conference will commence shortly after the first week back to school in September.

Keep checking back to the Fall Conference website for updated information and announcements.

The 2016 Fall Conference Committee is encouraging all registrants to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). There will be on hand some Apple IPad’s that can be loaned out for the day, however, workshops that are using ArcGIS Online work better with a laptop device. All registrants will have access to WIFI.
 
Presenters will need to bring their own devices to present from as workshop rooms are only equipment with Apple TV, projectors, speakers, and flat screen televisions. TCS will provide adaptors if a presenter happens to bring a PC laptop, otherwise, MACs can connect best through AirPlay.
