ArcGIS Online Resources

Discover all things Canadian by exploring ArcGIS Online. Here are a few highlights:

Promising Practices Website (PPW)

There are over 1400  free resources collated on the Promising Practices in Indigenous Education virtual library site. PPW collects and publicizes curriculum materials, learning strategies, relevant policies and research, Early Childhood Education resources, Parent/Community Engagement, and other promising initiatives. The website hosts curriculum guides, videos, research papers, and resources for Indigenous and non-Indigenous educators and learners. It also provides links to Indigenous education organizations. The site is updated the first Tuesday of every month; once your register, you will receive information about new resources added to the site.

Artifacts Tell Our Stories

This learning experience draws on concepts of artifactual literacy. Students investigate how artifacts tell our stories and deepen our understandings of ourselves, others, and our relationship to history. Students have opportunities to explore multiple forms of texts including visual objects and artifacts that embody lived experiences, values, identities, and cultures. They are introduced to the role of artifacts in history to tell the stories of the past and how multiple perspectives enrich our shared histories. Students are challenged to gather a collection of personal artifacts that represent them, investigate the story of each artifact, and share their findings in an exhibit. This learning experience can be done online synchronously or asynchronously, or a combination of both.
