CNIE 2012 Conference Presentations

If you are a 21st century digital leader who is committed to innovative, sustainable, and flexible education, come to Canmore, Alberta for the CNIE-RCIÉ’s Green Aware conference to be held on May 14-16, 2012. Whether you are a teacher, a researcher, a media specialist, an instructional designer, or an administrator, a May visit to Canmore, located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, is the place to be.

The idea of green has long been associated with protection of our environment and well it should. As green is the prime color of the world and, according to some, green is that from “which [the earth’s] loveliness arises” (Pedro Calderon de la Barca), it makes sense that green is associated with healing, freshness, endurance, and safety.

Green Aware as the theme of this year’s CNIE-RCIÉ conference challenges us to think about education in green ways: as something we must protect to ensure quality, inclusiveness, and access for both learners and teachers.  Given that the “tie that binds” CNIE-RCIÉ members is use of educational technology in learning situations, this year’s conference is about  sharing practices, research findings, and applications that contribute to one or more of the following three sub-themes:

  • Educational Innovation
  • Sustainable Education
  • Flexible Teaching and Learning
