We’re putting a number of strategies in place to make sure that EVERY class is able to participate regardless of your access to technology!

1  NEED HELP UPLOADING HANDMADE ARTIFACTS?

Robert Wiebe and his class of Grade 5 students have made an amazing offer. They have offered to have a teacher send them all of your hand-written and hand-made artifacts to a class in Kitchener and they’ll photograph them, post them, and then return them to the class! receive, photograph, upload, and return artifacts from any class lacking good internet service to do so. If you require a thumb drive to send them by mail, please let us know.

 

2  NEED HELP UPLOADING HANDMADE or DIGITAL ARTIFACTS?

We are are going to be sending a USB stick to northern communities so that teachers and classes in communities who lack reliable internet service can send their artifacts to us and we’ll submit them for you.
Northern communities can also use the USB sticks to send materials to other classes across Canada (such as a video exchange).
Contact North has agreed to allow any community who has access to one of the online learning centres to use their internet services for the purpose of kids contributing to this project! All they have to do is get in touch with their local facility and arrange to use their services.


If you have internet, but have questions about how to upload your artifacts in order to provide a link to your content, please see our Ideas to Upload Content Help and Support Document.


3  INTERNET SUPPORT in NORTHERN COMMUNITIES

CONTACT NORTH – Ontario

If you have internet and/or bandwidth issues in your school or community, we have arranged with Contact North for any elementary class to use their facilities in your area for uploading student artifacts and to help in connecting with classes across Ontario. 

Please check the following page to find out if there is an online learning centre near you.
