President Schilling’s 2023 Convention Greeting Link

FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK IN THE SESSION DESCRIPTION. The pre-registration web page is https://www.pdtca.org/pre-registration.html Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered.  Pre-registration is now closed. The pre-registration page has an email link if you need to request to be removed from a session so someone on the waiting list can have your spot - top right of the page. For changes or signup come to the convention information desk at/after 1:00 pm on Thursday, Feb 23rd. Please kindly check Button 3. on the pre-registration page to see if a session has room for you as most of them are full.

You do not need to create a profile and log in to see sessions in Sched. However, if you want to add yourself to a session or evaluate a session you must be logged in.

NOTE TO SPEAKERS: We had planned to have a Zoom help desk, but decided against it.

PRINTABLE CONVENTION AT A GLANCE LINK - Off-Site Addresses are included.

“On the two school days of your assigned teachers’ convention, you have a legal and professional responsibility to attend convention. If you are not able to make it safely to your assigned convention, however, your collective agreement may include impassable roads or inclement weather clauses that you can access. If your collective agreement does not include language specific to road conditions or weather, you may make use of the personal leave clauses of your agreement in most cases. Please be aware that using any of these types of leave may require you to pay substitute costs, forego a portion of your salary and benefits, or report to your school or another work location in your district. Refer to your collective agreement for more information. Should you require any additional information or if you need assistance interpreting your collective agreement, please contact Teacher Employment Services at 1-800-232-7208 or 780-447-9400.”

Initier les élèves à la programmation au primaire avec Swift Playgrounds pour iPad

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Cet atelier permettra de découvrir les ressources gratuites d'Apple pour initier les jeunes élèves à la programmation, avec ou sans outils numériques! On y explorera l'application Swift Playgrounds pour iPad qui permet de résoudre des problèmes amusants et simples, mais aussi d'aller plus loin et de développer une connaissance approfondie du langage de programmation Swift, un langage réellement utilisé par des développeurs d’applications. Les défis proposés aux élèves, dont le niveau de difficulté varie, leur permettent de développer et mobiliser leurs habiletés technologiques. Enfin, des liens concrets avec le programme de formation seront suggérés pour réaliser des projets multidisciplinaires.

Voici le mur de ressources partagé pendant l'atelier!
