AVIKA

Alberta Virtual Indigenous Knowledge Awareness (AVIKA) programming provides both students and educators alike, the opportunity to connect with indigenous communities within the prairie province and around the world! Topics will explore culture, climate change impacts and the human rights of Indigenous Peoples. Connect with Chiefs, Elders and Traditional Knowledge keepers through easy video conferencing technology and virtual classrooms!

Real Research, Real LearningCombining generational accounts from our traditional knowledge keepers with modern virtual classrooms brings learning to life; pushing students beyond textbooks and into the world of research. Students post their work online, as they engage their peers under the direction of researchers and graduate students. In the end, participants have an opportunity to present their research and discuss their findings over video conference.

The 24/7 ClassroomNo longer is the classroom confined to the school. Rather, students collaborate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
