It nourishes, it cleans, it transports, freezes in our Canadian winter season and is the most refreshing thing in the summertime. We are made of it and it keeps all living things alive. What is your most favourite thing about water? How might we have more of it? Or how might we improve it?
We are exposed to educational experiences, the very moment we enter this world. They shape how we see the world, others and ourselves - and what we are capable of achieving. Institutionalized or not - education is powerful. What is your stance on education? How do you like to learn? How might institutionalised education evolve?
Kevin and Gabriela from Ontario built a game that combined a few of our lessons to make it their own. In this game, you need to use your knowledge of Canadian animals and our history to help rescue some of our mosView Project
Dans le cadre de cette leçon, les apprenants auront la chance de partager leurs expériences personnelles grâce aux arts. Les outils numériques sont fantastiques pour créer des œuvres d'art : ils permettent à tout le monde de créerView Project
Technology can power innovation and solve problems. It gives us the ability to learn about perspectives outside of our own. It has the power to drive change within individuals, communities – the world.
We want to celebrate the richness of the knowledge and diversity of perspectives that our nation holds. And so, we have chosen 12 themes (one for each month) for 2019, centred around broad global issues for our learners to reflect on. We have also included theme topics that might help inspire Canadians to dig deeper in their thoughts, research and ideas.
You can learn about our themes in the ‘Explore Our Themes’ section above!
We’d love for you to participate in #clcCode4Change! Register to attend a learning experience – and use the theme as inspiration for whatever you are guided to create. All of the learning experiences we offer are project-based – which means that you will apply your newly gained skills on creating something. Whether a digital story, interactive art or website – you are encouraged to reflect on the theme and apply your perspective, research or idea on the project you’ve started!
Some will be! You will know if you are signing up for an official theme-inspired workshop – as this will be indicated in the description on the Eventbrite registration page. However, if you attend one that is not theme-inspired, we still encourage you to use the month’s theme as inspiration for the project you create!
There is a theme for every month! We’ve shared what the theme for each month is above in the ‘Explore Our Themes’ section. Also, follow us on Twitter, on Instagram and Like us on Facebook. We’ll be sharing some additional resources that might inspire your digital creation!
We would love to know how you’ve chosen to include the theme in the digital project you’re working on! Share a link, a screenshot or a video of your creation using the hashtag #clcCode4Change!
