DSBN Turns to Advanced Education to Present an Interactive Learning Symposium

Advanced Education partners with DSBN to make “Technology Enhanced Learning” event a resounding success.

Mississauga, Ontario — As a leader in helping educators improve learning outcomes by turning classrooms into interactive learning environments, Advanced Education partners with schools and organizations throughout Ontario. Advanced Education recently collaborated with the District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) to host the “Technology Enhanced Learning: A Symposium on Interactive Technology” event held on October 20, 2012, at the Crossroads Public School in Ontario.

“I wanted to thank Advanced Education and their team for helping to make ‘Technology Enhanced Learning’ such a success,” according to Derek Galipeau, DSBN’s technical services and support supervisor.

More than 20 educational sessions were available to about 100 attendees throughout the day, including “Collaborative Research,” “The Lesson Activity Toolkit,” and “Interactive Education Solutions.” Sessions held during the event focused on strategies for the effective use of many digital resources, such as SMART technologies, iRover, Satalight and Sync. Six Advanced Education Consultants assisted onsite during the symposium to deliver Personal Development sessions and answer attendee questions in an interactive learning environment.

“Advanced Education’s reputation as a leader in bringing state-of-the-art educational solutions to classrooms made us the perfect partner for the DSBN symposium,” said Advanced Education’s Co-President Mark Mulford.

 DSBN provides more than 38,000 students each year with quality public education at elementary and secondary schools in the 12 municipalities that compose the Niagara Region in Ontario. DSBN helps empower students to achieve their dreams through continuous team effort as supported by teachers, principals, support staff, senior administration and trustees.

DSBN’s Software Workshops and Technology Training (S.W.A.T.T.) team and Advanced Education jointly delivered the content presented during the symposium. During a one-year collaboration, Advanced Education focused on developing sound pedagogical content; supplying session descriptions and content; and developing and operating a hands-on display where attendees could operate hardware and receive personal support.

Advanced Education announces the winners of the Spring Events

Throughout May, the Advanced Education team travelled across Ontario hosting the Spring Education Discovery Series which featured the latest classroom solutions from leading manufacturers such as SMART Technologies.  Attendees had a chance to listen to a workshop by our Education Consultants on how to “demystify” and simplify lessons on the SMART Board.  The hands-on portion of the session allowed the attendees to walk around and learn more about the different classroom technologies.

In addition, we also hosted the Assistive Technology Summit, a special needs workshop featuring classroom solutions for special education. This year, we welcomed a special guest speaker Randy Welch from Spaulding Youth Centre in New Hampshire, who explained how interactive whiteboards have revolutionized how teachers engage and teach autistic students in group instruction.

We would like to thank all of those who attended.  We were overwhelmed with the response and thank everyone for taking the time out of your schedules to join us. 

We would like to announce the winners of our draw.  Each attendee had a chance to win a SMART™ Board interactive whiteboard, SMART™ Response System, or a SMART™ Document Camera.

The winners are:

SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard – Joseph Cordi 
SMART Response – Terri Corneil 
SMART Document Camera – Carmel Preya


Congratulations to all our winners!

Please feel to contact us at 1-800-436-6239 or send an e-mail to info@advanced-education.com and we will assist you with an audiovisual solution that suits your classroom needs.
