Caroline Pageot, an educational advisor with the Conseil scolaire catholique Providence, has been awarded the Al Skeoch prize at the annual conference of the Ontario History and Social Science Teachers’ Association.

This prize was awarded to Caroline for her development of a course to the characteristics of a video game, which is intended to link tasks and challenges in the game to desired learning outcomes.

This project was developed in collaboration with Julie-­‐Anne Gareau and Shari Robitaille, who are both teachers at the Monseigneur-­‐Bruyère Catholic high school. The project has been repeatedly presented to a variety of conferences at the provincial and national levels, especially during the Francophone Summit on the iPad in education and digital education that took place last spring in Montreal.

The Al Skeoch prize is awarded annually to an educator who has demonstrated sensitivity to students (at all levels), originality, enthusiasm, collegiality towards their colleagues and reach beyond classroom into broader community.
