Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has recently got itself on to the Web 2.0 platform with a unique program called Innoteach. This program is a collaborative tool for teachers to share innovative technological practices in pedagogy. Some highlights of this program have been podcasting, digital storytelling, hands-on experience with movie editing software, French commercials and graphic stories. According to an article published in the February Issue of their monthly publication - Voice, the learning object materials of the program will be posted on the ETFO website so that teachers anywhere in the province can access the rich resources.
It was about time for elementary teachers to have our own professional learning community that could take our teaching practices to unforeseen success!
Three cheers for ETFO.
