Theme: RE-Imagine

This event occurred on
January 12, 2013
8:00am - 8:00am EST
(UTC -5hrs)
Oakville, Ontario

The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the world 'Re-imagine' as 'to form a new conception of' and this is what our event aims to do. Can we re-imagine a devastated country coming to terms with re-building physical structures while including educational technology as a priority for schools? Can we re-imagine second life - moving from several years of a successful professional life to perhaps something totally unrelated and making a budding success out of it? This Re-imagine event would like attendees to form a new conception of something that is not necessarily new and in so doing, come away inspired to re-imagine what we may have always taken for granted.
