EXTRA SUPPORT AVAILABLE

.

We’ve worked hard to put strategies in place to make sure that every K-8 class in Canada is able to participate in the Kids’ Guide project, even with no access to computers or internet service.

 


1  Help uploading handmade artifacts made by students

(stories, artwork, etc.)

Robert Wiebe and his class of Grade 5 students in Kitchener Ontario have made an amazing offer. They have offered to have you send them all of your students’ hand-written and hand-made artifacts to their school by mail, and they will carefully photograph, upload, and then return all of your student works artifacts to you. And if you require a thumb drive in order to send them by mail, please let us know.

2  Help for classes in FNMI communities

We are sending a USB Flash Drive to all K-8 First Nation schools, and all K-8 schools in northern Quebec and the 3 northern territories so that teachers and classes in those communities don’t have to rely on internet service to download or use all of our resources. Teachers there can use the flash drive to send their artifacts to us if they want, and we’ll submit them for you.
The USB sticks can also be used to send materials back and forth to other classes across Canada for text, audio, and/or video exchanges.
 

 

 

3  Help for classes in remote Ontario communities 

If you have internet and/or bandwidth issues in your school, we have arranged with Contact North for any elementary class to use 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. All you have to do is get in touch with your local facility and arrange to use their services.

4.  Help for classes in other provincial and territorial communities 

We are currently working to find the same type of support in each of the provinces and territories across Canada. Stay tuned!
