Justin’s Module 3 post #1:

  1. Connected North – A digital Legacy for the next 150

I came across this resource while reading the morning news. This website was launched in 2013 with just one school in Iqaluit. Connected North being shared across 30 schools currently, in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Saskatchewan and Northern Ontario. The program provides schools with access to Indigenous mentors, experts and role models, along with field trips, education and mental wellness.

This resource has fundraised $300,000 already to help support the growth of Connected North. What makes me most happy is the stories that are being shared by their users. Storytelling is one of the best ways to share tradition and learn about new cultures.
