/R E P E A T -- Media convocation - The First Nations Education Council
(FNEC) will reward the First Nations communities who have successfully taken
up the 100% Smart challenge!/

WENDAKE, QC, April 28 /CNW Telbec/ - The FNEC has set up a project entitled 100% Smart which encourages First Nations schools to equip themselves with a smart board in each class including the training of the teaching personnel at 100%. On the occasion of its 19th First Nations Education Conference, the FNEC will underline the participation of four First Nations schools which have brilliantly met the 100 % Smart challenge.

Additional information: The FNEC has developed this innovative and incentive-driving project to facilitate the acquisition of smart boards given that the current federal funding formula for First Nations schools does not allocate any funds for the purchase of new technologies. www.avenir-future.com

The smart board is an interactive technological tool which makes learning more interesting and its use in the classroom has revealed several direct positive effects on education, one of the most encouraging being the increase in student participation in class.
