The 2018 Technological Education survey is now open, and your responses will help inform future directions for OCTE and the Ontario Ministry of Education!

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.

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.

Emphasis Course safety documents were written by OCTE members sponsored by the Ministry of Education in 2015.

Safety Minute Tip of the Month

Communications Technology is not always on our safety radar as much as "hard" tech programs but it is just as important to consider ergonomic safety elements when working with computers. Read this basic checklist on ensuring the health and safety of employees (and students) using computers and print a copy of this "Proper Computer Posture" infographic for your classroom.
