My Message

Thanks for supporting this terrific program.  

The connected North Program Model supports student engagement in remote Indigenous Communities.  The program does this by delivering immersive and interactive education services through Cisco's high definition two way telepresence technology.  Students in a classroom traveling the world through video technology.   

Your donation will support: 

Virtual experts and field trips: Live interactive video sessions connecting students, experts, content partners and educational venues like galleries and museums to enhance curriculum and add exciting new resources to the classroom. 

Virtual Career Fairs: Live career fairs and virtual mentoring give students the opportunity to meet professionals in various industries and occupations and explore possible career opportunities.

Cultural Exchange: The program provides the opportunity to connect with other schools in the Connected North program through collaborative project based learning. This includes north to south connections and north to north connections. A teacher recently said that the program "...has for both Northern and Southern students exposed them to a broader definition of Canada and what it is to be a citizen of our country."

Teacher Capacity Building: Use of collaborative technology for teacher professional learning and mentorship. Professional development experts and peer mentors can instruct and interact with teachers in remote locations, providing them access to expertise that might otherwise have been very difficult to acquire.

Networking Academy: Cisco Networking Academy is an IT skills and career building program for learning institutions and individuals worldwide. More than 5.5 million people have joined the Networking Academy and become a force for change in the global economy since 1997. From secondary schools to universities to community organizations, more than 9000 institutions in 170 countries offer the Networking Academy curriculum.
