Advance Tech Ed by Volunteering with OCTE
The Ontario Council for Technology Education is run by a dedicated, highly skilled group of volunteers and we want your input and skills!
Welcome to OCTE's Online Resource Site! Teachers are encouraged to amend, revise, edit, and adapt this material for educational purposes. Our Online Learning material covers Elementary, Secondary, Experiential Learning and SHSM subjects.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Are you or someone you know considering a career as a technological educator? Check out the program at York University. To meet the needs of the candidates, the program offers a variety of delivery options, a credit for prior learning and experience, and instructors who are certified technology teachers with industry experience.
