In the wake of the success of the conference Clair 2010, the organizers will hold Clair 2011on January 27, 28 and 29 at the Haut-Madawaska Learning Center in Clair. “This is our way of bringing quality lecturers, in French, to New Brunswick,” explains Roberto Gauvin, principal of this school. We are far from major centers, but we have set up an international conference! "

The conferences and workshops of the colloquium revolve around the theme “Seeing education differently”. Presentation of student blogs, visits to a television studio for students and other technological tools to stimulate learning will be in the spotlight.

Francois Guité, English teacher at the Rochebelle school and former coordinator of the Information network for educational success will give the first lecture on January 27. Sébastien Paquet, blogger and professor at the University of Montreal, will describe in a conference ways to prepare schools for the communication era, so that young people play a role in creating a culture of open collaboration. Daniel Peraya, doctor in communication and professor at the Educational Technologies Unit of the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Geneva, will make his presentation the same day. Finally, on January 28, Laurence June, teacher of history, geography and letters in a vocational school in La Rochelle will deliver a testimonial on the theme "an experience in contact with ICT that serves education and learning well".

“Our main mission, throughout the weekend, is to network,” says Roberto Gauvin. Schools that are pioneering in classroom technology, such as the Haut-Madawaska Learning Center, will be able to share their resources. Moreover, on Friday, the participants will visit our school in action, while the students are in class; our students are the ambassadors of Clair 2011. ”The Center indeed wishes to highlight its innovative teaching practices, such as their school blog project.

Between conferences, socialization events as well as dynamic workshops are on the menu. For example, participants are invited to make a poster on which they present their own initiatives. These will be highlighted during a session where each volunteer will explain their project.

“The success of Clair 2010 surprised everyone,” describes the director of the Learning Center. Clair 2011 therefore benefits from the increased support of our community. All our organizers are volunteers! The conference invites educational students, teachers of all levels, school officials and all members of the community interested in education to participate. "Clair 2011 will nurture the possibilities of success for students from all backgrounds," wishes Roberto Gauvin. We are a small French-language country school in New Brunswick. However, the education we offer is based on project-based learning and the use of computers. What Clair 2011 attendees will observe during their visit develops throughout the year with us. "
