Register Now for MyEducation BC Academy 2019

Registration is now open for the 2019 MyEducation BC Academy on April 25-26, 2019 at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort, in Kelowna, BC.

Registration is free and easy through the event’s Eventbrite ticket site. Once you have registered, you will be forwarded to the event schedule page, where you can get more information about tracks and sign up for workshops once the full agenda is posted. Because these websites are based in the US, we recommend you register using your work email address.

Attendees will get lessons on using MyEducation BC, learn more about the transformation of education within British Columbia, and connect with Follett and Fujitsu and like-minded educators, administrators, users, and school staff from across the province. Breakfast and lunch are complimentary. A draft schedule will be available soon. Watch the event schedule for the latest agenda information.

We are excited to welcome this year’s opening keynote speaker, Nora Young. Nora is the host and the creator of Spark, a national radio show and podcast about technology and culture, which airs on CBC Radio. She was the founding host of CBC Radio’s Definitely Not the Opera, where she often discussed topics related to new media and technology. Her work has also appeared online, on television, and in print. As a journalist, author, and speaker, Nora explores how new technology shapes the way we understand ourselves and the world around us. Her book, The Virtual Self, focuses on the explosion of data about our behaviours, thoughts, opinions and actions. She’s a casual blogger and committed hobby podcaster.
