A8 A Sacred Promise – Dufferin-Peel
Audience: JK-12 Presenter: Joanna Newton
The free iBook, Inuksuk: Sharing Experiences of Nunavut will be presented. Interactive elements include video clips, panoramic and 3D images, sound bites of the Inuktitut language and syllabic script, and quizzes to engage student inquiry. The respectful dialogue and partnership between northern and southern communities documented here signals an act of reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners. It is a powerful tool for raising awareness about Inuit culture and Canada`s most northerly communities to spark the interest and respect of all readers, from K-12 students to their teachers.
