Partner and Director General with Opossum, Learning and Technology Division (a subsidiary of iXmédia Group), Mario Asselin started out one of the most successful experimentation by integrating computer-assisted training at school: Cyberportfolio at Institut St-Joseph in Quebec City.
At that time, after teaching Elementary and High School level and leading activities, he was appointed Head of a school, position which he held for 15 years in Elementary and High School level. Physical educator by trade, coaching has always been central in his professional life.
Actually, he is involved in approximately forty projects where Social software is used as learning strategy. He advises institutions, business, Canadian Government departments and Ministries of French Government in order to support best practices and initiate the emergence of vast "learning organizations".
When he was school director, he liked so much the enterprise that has supported him in his endeavour with cyberportfolio that he became a business partner. In 2004, Mario Asselin was awarded the «CHAPO» prize by the Quebec Association of Computer users in Elementary and High School Level (AQUOPS).
Mario Asselin is also preaching to his fellow citizens the virtue of wireless connections in Quebec City. Much sought-after in the media sphere for his innovative mind in education, he runs a very busy Blog named «Mario tout de go» which eventually turned into an electronic portfolio where he has been having Web conversations for the last four years. He's the father of three boys, who are also the joy of his spouse; as an educator, he's as much passionate with his family life than with his professionnal one.
