The Canadian Education Association supports education systems to be more adaptive to the rapidly changing needs of all learners in an effort to reverse the trends of students tuning out of their learning opportunities.

The goal of the 2013 International 1:1 Computing Conference is to provide participants with new knowledge, practical strategies, and the opportunity to build a community of practice around using technology to transform classroom instruction and to deeply engage students through communication, collaboration, creation, and personalized learning. The conference is hosted by the Canadian Education Association, the One-to-One Institute, and the Lausanne Learning Institute, and sponsored by Intel Education, DyKnow, and SMART. Lord Knight of Weymouth will lead the keynote titled 'Theres a Revolution in the Way Children are Learning, but Not in School.'
"Ron's experience with 1:1 education is impressive," said Dr. Berger. He continued, "Ron's long history with 1:1 education is clear from his implementation insights."
