Portage Collegiate Institute
Portage la Prairie, MB
Our theme for 2023 is BYTE-Size Technology Infusion, inspired by the idea that EVERYONE is able to make small, daily learning gains in an overwhelming education environment. Hopefully, our attendees will be dreaming of the BYTE Conference all weekend and able to take some new byte-sized tech ideas to their students on Monday, February 20, 2023, and beyond! The plan is for an in-person event.
