Check out Student Work!

Wow.

What a great collaboration. Since February participating classes have;

  • joined in 12 Google Hangouts on Air with each other over 4 months
  • participated in a Google Hangout on Air with Waubgeshig Rice 
  • wrote, read and responded to over 700 posts in our D2L online discussion forum
  • created video, images and audio to introduce themselves and share about their communities with each other 
  • defended what they felt to be 'the most important' Call to Action from the TRC and compared these with each other 
  • challenged each other to learn new lingo and understand what terms like 'unceded' means
  • read books along the theme reconciliation and shared reviews online using GoodReads
  • worked together in two separate MineCraft worlds to build their collective vision of reconciliation
      • Elementary (link to video overview of world coming soon!)
      • Secondary (link to video overview of world coming soon!)
  • posted an image, video, text or audio reflection in either our closed D2L online discussion or public galleries
  • posted thought and ideas on twitter using the tag #craftreconciliation 
  • created images with sayings to help break down stereotypes and shared these on twitter or our public gallery 
  • annotated reading material online using collaborative annotation tools - all around the them of reconciliation 
  • created murals combining both Indigenous and non-indigenous artistic styles to show working together 
  • designed and build dioramas to show the relationship between Indigenous and non-indigenous in the past, present and future 
  • wrote letters 
  • wrote news report to be turned into an eBook
One thing for sure can be said about our work together - the students owned this.

Thank you to the participating classes. I invite you all to post reflections and learning here on our blog at anytime. I've learned so much from all of you!
