Canada C3 Digital Classroom

Start date: November 9, 2016 - End date: January 1, 2017
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am

Canada C3 (Canada: Coast to Coast to Coast) is a pan-Canadian Government of Canada signature project for Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation celebrations taking place in 2017. Canada C3 will celebrate the people and places that have shaped Canada’s identity and those who are shaping its future. Engaging millions of Canadians across the country, the centrepiece of the project is an epic 150-day sailing expedition from Toronto to Victoria, via the Northwest Passage. The four central themes of the Canada C3 project are Diversity and Inclusion, Reconciliation, Youth Engagement, and The Environment.

As part of the Canada C3 project, we are creating, together with teachers from across the country, the Canada C3 Digital Classroom. The members of your PSA have been identified as teachers and educators we hope to engage in this initiative. Specifically, we are inviting your members to contribute to the Canada C3 Digital Classroom which will launch in early 2017 and be promoted through an extensive network of national and regional education partners already well established in Canadian schools. This content will be further enhanced by educational resources that are being provided by dozens of national educational NGO partners who specialize in one of the central themes highlighted above. Teachers from across Canada who design and contribute an exemplary learning module for the Canada C3 Digital Classroom will be invited to apply to become a Canada C3 Participant on one of the 15 legs of the expedition.
