Our Board received some great news this week. The grant proposal that was submitted for work in the Character Development area has been accepted!!!
A formal working group will be struck shortly to work on this project. The intent is to focus on Digital Citizenship. At this point in time, preliminary discussions are revolving around the idea of preparing a 2 day symposium event which might include:
- keynote speakers
- sessions for students, staff and parents
- ongoing activities such as workshops and/or contests beyond the actual event
- continuation of the student input to technology planning day we started last year
- community outreach
Anticipating the team members who will work on this event, I know the ideas, creativity and final product will be very rewarding and worthwhile. I was thinking, if details could be worked out, it would be really nice if we could extend an invite to the Ontario PLP Cohort to connect in online for the key note sessions via Adobe Connect .
Lots to do, lots to think about – that is for sure.

Congratulations, Mark. Sounds like an exciting opportunity.
Have some names for great speakers from the Tech It Up conference in BC
Really great news! Did you know that the school district that includes Kamloops is 70% Linux.
Congrats! This is great news. Let me know if you want to brainstorm ideas- or better yet ask the PLP community.
