Volunteer at #BIT16

Bring IT Together  2016 is just over a month away!  That means that presenters are busy planning, keynote speakers are probably editing their notes, and teachers are finding ways to attend this year’s conference.  When you register, consider indicating that you’d like to help by volunteering!


In fact, you should register with a friend or two and volunteer together!  Why volunteer at #BIT16??  Check out the sketchnote inspired ThingLink below that explains a few reasons…

We are looking for volunteers who would like to:

  • Greet people as they enter the Convention Centre and provide directions (as needed).
  • Help at the registration desks at the start of each day
  • Help with Innovation Stations & Learning Space
  • Post to the conference’s Social Media – sharing / updates / photos / live broadcasting

Now that you can’t wait to volunteer fill out → this form ← or contact me, Colleen Rose, by emailing volunteers@bringittogether.ca  and we can get things started.  Volunteers at #BIT16 must be registered for the day(s) they wish to volunteer.  Fill in the form now and register as soon as possible.

Whoo hoo! BreakOutEDU is coming to #BIT16

This blog post does not need a fancy title to grab your attend, as just like the title evokes, BreakOutEDU is coming to the Bring IT, Together conference on Thursday, November 10 at 7:30 p.m. and we couldn’t be more excited!  

Leslie Boerkamp, Sandra Chow, Sylvia Duckworth, and Kim Pollishuke have teamed up to create and make the #BIT16 BreakOutEDU the best experience, creating an original game for 100 registered participants.  These ladies have never created a game so big, for so many people but when asked to come up with something special for #BIT16 they chimed an echoed “yes!” and literally can’t wait for you to see what they’ve developed.   

BreakOutEDU is a social game that takes the appeal of the “escape room,” a recreational team sport in which a group of people use their wits to break out of a locked room, and turns it inside out. Instead of a locked room, teams must figure out how to get inside a tightly locked box. (Greg Toppo, USAToday)  


Our #BIT16 BreakOutEDU game is going to have you meeting new folks, using your noodle, laughing and learning in a way that you’ll want to take right back into the classroom.  Trust us, whether this is your first or seventeenth BreakOutEDU session, this is one FREE social event hosted by #BIT16 that you don’t want to miss!

The #BIT16 BreakOutEDU is limited to the first 100 people who select the event when they register.  Spaces are filling so don’t delay, register today.

Looking forward to breaking out with you soon,

Leslie Boerkamp
Social Events Co-ordinator
