Springboards 2021 – our first virtual conference – brought together an eclectic array of presenters around the theme of Teachers Teaching Teachers: Celebrating, Motivating, and Inspiring during a Time of Trial and Change. Former GET grant recipients, writers, teachers and academics made this year’s conference memorable with presentations ranging from teaching emotional self-regulation and the need for diversity in the ELA classroom, to using history as an inspiration for writing and teaching for critical moments, using video games and beyond. Here, our board of directors offers summaries and highlights from our keynote address and our Saturday sessions.

Teachers have been working hard to find creative and workable solutions for all of the professional shifts and changes that we have been living through since the pandemic began. It has been a challenge to find ways to address equity and differentiation, to maintain connected relationships with our students and to engage them effectively online. With so much Ed Tech out there, it is difficult to choose which tools are worth our time and energy.
This is where ATEQ’s curated list of Hybrid and Online Teaching Resources, created by and for English teachers in Quebec, comes in.
