OCTE supports McMaster child and mental health unit with technology donation


This year OCTE donated over $5000 to the McMaster Child and Mental Health, Unit 3G. This is the 6th year we have donated over $5000 to the unit on behalf of our members, in lieu of giving presenters gifts at our OCTE spring conference. Each year we ask the unit for a list of technology that needs to be updated or replaced. This year's request from the unit was for Kobo Readers, a computer, new controllers for the previously donated X Box and Wii games, 20 movies, $200.00 in iTunes cards, a $200.00 gift certificate to purchase more movies, an Apple Box, and 5 ipods. As technological educators, we know this gift of technology will help to engage and provide happiness to some of our youth that are in need of it the most.
