Through Passages Canada, Waubgeshig Rice has agreed to speak with our group. On Thursday May 25th, 9:00 am he will do a Google Hangout on Air with our classes. We can't wait!
Students have been working hard in their small, mixed-schools working groups. They have been adding to collaborative Mindomo mind maps and discussion forums as they investigate sub topics to the bigger question "What does being a great Canadian look like?".
Throughout the next weeks, students will be 'crafting' their vision of what being a great Canadian looks like. They may craft this in our collaborative Minecraft world. They may craft a song. They may craft a piece of art. A website. A poem. A blog post. A video. We're excited to see what they may craft to represent their vision.
We have been lucky enough to get Shawn Johnston booked to speak with students participating in the #CDNcraft project. This is an amazing opportunity for our students to hear another perspective of life in Canada. Check out Shawns bio and get ready for a great Google Hangout on April 20th at 9:30 am.
Our next round of Google Hangouts on Air will be Tuesday April 4th at 9:30 am and 2:15 pm. The links to watch will be posted here!
