Whose.land are you on? : Stimulating classroom learning and conversations around Truth and Reconciliation using the Whose.land platform
Join TakingITGlobal, the RÉCIT Anglophone National Service for First Nations and Inuit (RÉCIT FNI) and the RÉCIT National Service for the Anglophone Community for an hour-long workshop to learn more about the Whose.Land platform.
Whose.land is an excellent way for students and educators of all levels to deepen their knowledge and awareness of Indigenous Nations and communities across Canada. This web-based app uses GIS technology, allowing users to access information about land acknowledgements, treaties and land agreements, residential schools and more. It is one way to stimulate learning and conversations around Truth and Reconciliation in Quebec classrooms while activating Digital Competency.
In this workshop, Michael Furdyk (Co-Founder and Director of Innovation at TakingITGlobal) and Anishinaabe educator Christine M’lot will discuss the creation of the platform, its features and functionalities, its accompanying lesson plans and professional learning tools, as well as how the site can be navigated by school staff and students to incorporate Indigenous perspectives and honouring the traditional land on which they work, teach, and live.
