Bring IT, Together!


After many months of planning, preparation, and hard work, the 34th annual conference of the Educational Computing Organization of Ontario (ECOO) is underway. Following regular increases in yearly attendance in recent years, the decision was made to move the conference to a larger venue, resulting in our hosting of #ecoo13  in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Arriving at the conference centre yesterday evening, it was not long until darkness fell and I had an opportunity to appreciate the marquee on display outside the ScotiaBank Convention Centre of Niagara (SCCN) — no one image fully captured the full message or the impact of the marquee. Having spent considerable time working on the branding and promotion of the conference (, it was gratifying to see the culmination of things.

An Animated GIF was called for.

Following a series of full-day Wednesday Workshops today, we move ahead to two days of core conference session — each day featuring 75+ sessions and events, as well as a series of social events. All told, over 250 educators will share their expertise with the 1300+ attendees (or more — on-site registrations continue) over the course of the three days.

The full conference schedule of events is available and searchable on our Lanyrd site.
