OCTE RESOURCES

We want all technological education teachers in Ontario to be able to think through the stages of their projects and learning activities they do with students. Submitting your lesson through SafetyNET means you have a reflective lens for before, during and after you have fun with your students, and protect yourself as a professional educator.

A .pdf print out of QR codes for teachers is available with cut lines for teachers to stick onto their classroom tools, equipment, and processes. Students will be able to view the video in a class session, re-review on their devices, listen to the .mp3 to lessen the download, or look at the video content transcription. There are lesson plans that go with each one.

SAFEdocs documents were written by OCTE members sponsored by the Ministry of Education in 2013 and align safety resources to the 2009 Technological Education curriculum document.

Emphasis Course safety documents were written by OCTE members sponsored by the Ministry of Education in 2014 and look similar to the SAFEdocs, but contain additional safety content that align to the Emphasis Course codes which can be found at http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/curriculum/secondary/techedemphasiscourses.pdf

OCTE Best Practice resources are resources and lesson plans submitted by teachers like you. These resources are made available thanks to the commitment and involvement of partners from across Ontario.

Safety Minute Tip of the Month

With the holiday season quickly approaching, we should keep safe food preparation in mind. When preparing food, follow the four C's - clean, control, cook & chill. Make sure your surfaces are clean before and after all food preparation. Place raw meat below all other foods in the fridge and don't cross-contaminate. Cook most food to the minimum internal temperature of 74 degrees Celsius or 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Chill prepared food within 2 hours of cooking. Not sure about already prepared food you have in your fridge? Follow this simple rule - when in doubt, throw it out!
