Provincial Education Week
April 17-23, 2016
The 2016 Education Week theme, Media Literacy: Empowering Critical Thinking in a Digital Media World, focuses on honouring educators who, through guided learning opportunities, are teaching students to become respectful, responsible and ethical digital citizens. Literacy is essential to student learning in every subject at all grade levels, and to success in life and work. Today, media and digital literacy involve the skills required to understand, create, and critically interpret print, screen-based, and digital text. These media are a primary means of daily communication in our students’ world.
The CCRSB regional Education Week Committee, consisting of NSTU Local representatives and governing Board members, will consider all nominations. One name will be selected from each of the three NSTU locals within CCRSB, and those individuals will be recommended to the Provincial Education Week Committee to receive provincial recognition during Provincial Education Week.
Nomination deadline: February 19, 2016
The nomination form, press release and poster are listed below for more information.
