New year, new topics, new books to explore!

ATLE is into its third year of hosting a no-cost informal book study for our members and all other interested participants!
 
Come join members of the team and readers from around the province and BEYOND as we grow a truly connected online community, exploring books that expand the horizons of our work in technology and education.
 
The books we are considering for this year will appeal to ET/IT folks, including teachers and school leaders - click the links below to explore them on Amazon.ca.
 
This year we meet after school, from 3:30 - 4:30 PM MTN. The first "Let's meet and get started" meeting was on November 28. New participants are welcome to join at any time! Wherever you are, please know that ALL are welcome! We have loved in the past having participants from as far East as Newfoundland as as far south as the Commonwealth of Dominica!

2021-2022

We tested the book study waters by exploring Kristen Mattson's Ethics in a Digital World.
We were excited subsequently to sponsor Kristen as our keynote for Convergence, 2022, where she also presented an inspiring stream of sessions focused on aspects of digital citizenship.
