Can anyone tell me why the Choctaw school is no longer participating? Financial issues? Pressure of other commitments? It seems a terrible loss, both for understanding their tradition and for building a new global one.

First Peoples' Project: Sharing the wisdom of cultures

The embedded video incorporating oral interviews highlights the importance of project learning, showing conflict resolution through play and dance to convey cultural values, emphasizing intracultural awareness as well as intercultural communication to establish the immediacy and relevance of education. In our global society, learning is becoming transcontinental and ideas may be shared synchronistically, intensifying experiences with the clarity of tools capturing the actual visual and audio that may be recorded for posterity and that provide instantaneous feedback from audiences that may be random or specifically selected. The project illustrates the depth, extent and relevance that empowers education through the research, interview, exploration, recording, and dissemination of meaningful information to communicate about one's own culture while also assisting others to become more engaged in learning about another's culture.

I think that is absolutely fascinating! What an excellent way of connecting children to their culture especially with Elders and connecting children to other First Nations cultures. It is also a very contemporary way of researching their own cultures and other cultures. Very contemporary. Wow!

Cultural values are an important part of human developement. In this program children are learning about themselves and helping others. These are valuable lessons and I am glad to see people are taking time to teach them.

This program is an excellent tool to be used. It allows students to keep up with their own cultural traditions, as well as to learn and become involved with other cultures. It opens up the world for them and allows them to understand what other places are like and how they can be helped.

I was really impressed by the First Peoples Project. I thought that it was a great project the children and teachers did a great job by using the Art to reachout to others locally and globally. It helped me to see that projects like these can grow with the use of technology such as video. The Humanitarian Project helped me to see that when technology is used to it's optimum advantage, children in the educational setting can become well informed, and use the information they gain to benefit others. What a positive example.

I really enjoyed listening to the video. However, the visual component was not working?? The video did give a lot of content information, that seem to be educational for students. I real believe that intergrating technology within the classroom helps students to make connections to other people and places around the world. Lets face it, prehaps some students may never get the opportunity to visit or experience or learn from global areas without the use of technology).
