This is Nova Scotia – From Individuals Out: Promoting the Use of Information and Communications Technology at Home, School, Work and in the Community (2001)

A Showcase Grassroots Project

With help from Industry Canada’s GrassRoots program, teachers and students at Atlantic View Elementary School, near Halifax, Nova Scotia, are developing their information and communications technology (ICT) skills.

This Is Nova Scotia – From Individuals Out encourages teachers to integrate technology into their classroom curriculum. Students are encouraged to use ICT skills to research a variety of aspects of Nova Scotia’s culture, history, and people, and to place their findings and interpretations on the Internet.

By working on the projects, teachers and students are also developing their skills in making presentations, communication, and teamwork.

In addition to accommodating a range of learning approaches, from the relatively narrow perspective of kindergarten children to the broader outlook of Grade 6 students, the project encourages teachers to share ideas and insights.

Students have learned about Nova Scotia’s history, culture, climate, geography, and economy. They have also learned how to build web pages; take digital photos; use the Internet for research; and send email messages.
