On the occasion of his 40e anniversary, the Franco-Ontarian Center for Educational Resources (CFORP) is launching an award to recognize innovation in Canadian French-language schools. This year, resources for TBI are in the spotlight.

The CFORP Prize - Innovation in Education aims in particular to recognize innovative and creative approaches that promote learning using digital resources. It also aims to highlight exceptional contributions in teaching and encourage educators who design digital teaching materials.

For its first edition, the competition is taking place under the theme “The TBI in the digital age”. Teachers working in a French-language elementary or secondary school in a minority environment are invited, alone or in teams, to submit their application by December 2, 2013. To do so, applicants must create an interactive activity, in French, for use with the interactive whiteboard (TBI). This TBI activity must promote learning, involve student participation and meet the expectations of the curriculum of the province in question. Other criteria must be respected, such as the production of an educational sheet accompanying the production as well as the use of a tebeware such as SMART Notebook or Activinspire for the design of the activity.

The selection of the winners will be made by a jury made up of five specialists in the field of education and the field of technology. Each of the winners (one for each of the three major regions of Canada, namely East, West and Central) will receive a prize with a total value of 2,000 $ including, among other things, a check for 1,000 $ for the designers of the TBI activity. It will also have the chance to be published on the websites of the Educational Resource Bank of Canada (BREC) and the Ontario Educational Resource Bank (BRA).

Our Franco-Ontarian Center for Educational Resources is an organization created in 1974 to support French-language education in Ontario. Since then, it has increasingly served all of the Canadian Francophonie by offering diversified services such as the production of educational resources and professional training for teachers.
