Frontier School Division is hosting a series of Live Stream events straight from the tundra. The series of events, outlined in the promotion attached, includes student presentations, an expert panel discussion, and a teacher professional development opportunity. Schools from across the globe will be invited to participate in this unique event.
The student presentations will incorporate the science behind living on the tundra, bio-diversity, and even personal experiences with the local polar bear population.
The expert panel discussion includes individuals from the Churchill Northern Study Centre, Parks Canada, Manitoba Conservation, and Frontier School Division.
Pre-service teachers from Red River College will be providing a global professional development opportunity. Topics to be addressed will be connecting global classrooms even with limited access to technology, and creating impact with the technology available.
Frontier School Division has been embracing Live Stream technology in new and innovative ways. In particular, the streaming technology has provided opportunities for students across Northern Manitoba to participate in Science-related activities such as a chemistry ‘magic’ show, an animal showcase in the midst of the boreal forest, and a workshop on gardening in cold climates. In partnership with Sisler High School, students were able to view an ACL knee reconstruction in real time.
The use of live stream technology in the north is growing bigger and bigger. We are proud to be a driving force in this. In fact, students from across Manitoba are truly becoming a part of the global classroom.
