I’m trying to refocus some of my postings on here back to my proposed paper topic. Lately many of my posts have been connected to Inuit culture as I find it personally quite fascinating. Nonetheless, my post for today is actually a link to a project by a fellow UBC student named Cindy Plunkett. For her ETEC540 weblog she has posted on digital literacy and one her emphases has been on the digital divide in Canada. You can view her piece here: http://cleach.wordpress.com/digital-divide-in-canada/
The second paragraph deals with aboriginal education. She cites academic sources in highlighting some of the unique challenges faced by aboriginals. One of the top issues identified was connectivity and access to the Internet. These will be items addressed in my research paper.
