Our virtual Circle of Knowledge and Practices Conference was dedicated to creating student engagement. What better way to explore this theme than through conversations with educators around Canada, made possible with the online format.
Some of the courses we offered to our delegates included: Valuable Language Teaching through Technology, Rooted in Game with Mother Earth, Land-Based Medicinal Plants, Moving Towards Bilingual Language Programming, Inspiring Leadership, and much more!
If you missed out on some of our courses during the live event, you still have access to the recorded sessions with your conference sign-in link. Take in all the knowledge as never before.
Ways for engaging First Nations students involve inclusive education, academic subjects, and physical education based on a foundation of First Nations languages and cultures. Such learning impacts students’ drive to succeed in school and strengthens their sense of identity. Classroom management strategies to land-based activities will increase students’ attention and focus and motivate them to get involved and stay involved in school.
