Piikani Cultural and Digital Literacy Camp – Alberta, Canada
Category: Access and Development
The Piikani Cultural and Digital Literacy Camp Program is a community-based Indigenous digital literacy initiative in southern Alberta. The project involves researching and developing appropriate forms of Blackfoot (Piikani) digital literacy. Community partners, students and education administrators from Piikani First Nation in Southern Alberta will collaborate with university researchers to investigate and test digital literacy practices and resources. This will be done through an educational program that blends 2 phases of classroom/online learning (covering 3 modules each) with hands-on activities and experiential learning at a 3-day/3-night camp. Students from Piikani Secondary School will learn about Piikani culture while documenting their experience using digital ICT.
