Groupe Média TFO Presents A Forum On Learning Beyond School Walls

TORONTO, Feb. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Groupe Média TFO is inviting education professionals to attend a forum on learning beyond school walls, to be held on February 25 and 26, 2013 in Toronto. At this event, whose working language will be French, TFO will host experts from various backgrounds who will share the fruits of their research and experience in this area.

The forum will open at Toronto's Royal Conservatory of Music on February 25, with a half-day conference on music and education. The guest speakers at this event will be François Mario Labbé, president of Analekta and agent of virtuoso violinist Angèle Dubeau and Dr.  Jonathan Bolduc, an associate professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Ottawa. Their presentations will be followed by a cocktail reception to mark the launch of Groupe Média TFO's new online education platform, TFO Éducation.

The next day, February 26, the forum moves to Groupe Média TFO's downtown Toronto headquarters for a full day dedicated to exploring the new initiatives that TFO is developing with its education partners, including the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), the Centre franco-ontarien de ressources pédagogiques (CFORP), and SOS Devoirs, among others.

Over the past year, TFO has completed a range of research and development activities to offer a whole new web experience to TFO Éducation subscribers. As Glenn O'Farrell, President and Chief Executive Office of Groupe Média TFO, explains, "The teaching resources that we now offer will provide teachers, students, and their parents with better support, because these resources are now more accessible and include innovative content that complements and enhances the products that we offer for more traditional classroom use."

Adds Julie Caron, Manager of Educational Services at Groupe Média TFO, "The redesigned TFO Éducation web site plays a crucial role in supporting teachers through its multiplatform content offerings tailored to their needs. This all-new site offers many new functionalities. For example, it lets teachers create user accounts through which they can access TFO educational videos from any computer. It also lets teachers share resources with their classes and create bookmarks with personal annotations."

The TFO Éducation Forum will give educators the chance to share and to learn more about the resources and practices that TFO Éducation is now making available to them.
