Visit these online resources for parents and students:

  • There’s an app for that: Looking for the perfect French class app for your young child? Or how about a game that helps students 12+ with their fractions? Then check out these educational apps. Looking for apps in English and French? Read reviews of bilingual apps created for parents and teachers.

Hosted by the Ontario Coalition for Children and Youth Mental Health, the 2016 Summit on Children & Youth Mental Health will be held on April 7 – 8 in Toronto. This year’s focus is on moving from policy to practice through collaboration.

Launched in September, the enhanced teacher education program includes a greater focus on students’ mental health and well-being. Find out more here.

The College recently updated its Additional Qualification courses in mathematics for elementary and secondary school teachers as part of its commitment to enhancing teacher practice to improve student learning.
