Module 2 / Post 1: First Nations Pedagogy Online

This is a great website that I came across that explains First Nations Pedagogy in practical terms for educators. Topics such as culture, storytelling, literacy, Elders, holistic balance and best practices in pedagogy are explained along with links to videos. I quite like that each topic links to academic articles for further reading and study. I particularly enjoyed the section on talking circles. Not only does this website define and describe the process of using talking circles, but it also gives examples of how to facilitate talking circles online. This is a great starting point to begin learning about First Nations pedagogy. This site is a welcome and practical addition to the many scholarly articles I’ve come across in connection with my research into First Nations epistemology and technology.
