Connect 2013 — Canada’s Learning and Technology Conference

Connect 2013—Canada’s Learning and Technology Conference—was held last month in Niagara Falls. As a media sponsor, TEACH Magazine showcased their digital resources, The Shadowed Road and The Ruptured Sky. As well, we met enthusiastic educators who attended the conference and trade show. Some were keen on the latest innovations in educational technology while others were learning about them for the first time. We want to thank everyone who stopped by our booth and took the time to inquire about resources.
