The Assembly of First Nations has launched its free digital education resource for the iPad on iTunes U to the acclaim of many school boards. Titled “It’s Our Time First Nations Education Toolkit,” the package provides teachers with culturally relevant, accessible, hands-on educational tools related to First Nations culture and history. “The It’s Our Time First Nations Education Toolkit will help increase cultural competency and understanding of First Nations’ rights, histories and cultures, developed from First Nations perspectives,” commented AFN National Chief Perry Bellegarde. The Canadian Education Association, Canadian School Boards Association, and Canadian Teacher’s Federation all commended AFN on the resource, calling it a “must-have reference for schools” and a “valuable comprehensive toolkit.” AFN
