First Nations students and the possibility distance education…


Article #16, ……

I found the following article on Ebscohost titled ‘Ready, Willing, and Able: Prospects for Distance Learning in Canada’s First Nations Community” by author Cora Voyageur.


This article describes how First Nations people have currently been embracing technology and therefore equipped to participate within online courses. This notion has made me re-think the focus of my final paper. I am now leaning towards making a paper that describes what a contemporary First Nations library would resemble. The article further discusses both individual and community readiness for technology appreciation and again, the potential of online course participation. Once online courses are established, a First Nations library could help keep focus amongst students and provide a place for coursework to be completed.


The article can be found on the UBC Library ‘ebscohost’ search engine, and the link address is:
