Ontario Library Association ~ 2011 ~ (OLA) ~ Super Conference ~ Day ONE

The weather forecast for Toronto this morning was severe winter storm - it must be Ontario Library Association Super Conference! It was the first time in 12 years, the Director of the Toronto District announced that the Public Schools would be closed for a SNOW DAY!

Although disappointed to miss the time at home, Mrs. Dassios braved the storm, and along with Mrs. Fisher was able to present a workshop at the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto.

We got online and had the opportunity to develop our "Twitter" skills.
You can follow Mrs. Dassios @ GuardLibrarian.

We were well received as we spoke about the ongoing Professional Development that is taking place at our Family of Schools in Scarborough SE. The new document "Together for Learning" is taking the libraries of Ontario in a new direction - The Learning Commons. Chine Drive P.S. is proudly taking great steps to the implementation of resources, technologies, timetabling and staffing to ensure that the students get the best Information Services available today. We hope to continue expanding the use of Professional Learning Communities with our neighbouring schools to demonstrate and learn the skills and knowledge for the Learning Commons.

Looking forward to many more exciting workshops this week!!!
