The Manitoba Professional Learning Environment (MAPLE) includes moderated discussions, searchable libraries of resources, wiki online databases, blogs, event registration, news, and shared resource collections in all subject areas across the curriculum. MAPLE will also function as a forum in which teachers can provide feedback to the Department of Education and Advanced Learning. ““MAPLE is part of our strategy to improve the quality of education in Manitoba by making sure teachers have the tools they need to support student success,”” says Education and Advanced Learning Minister James Allum.
