A new way of learning Anishinaabemowin is rolling out to schools across the Northwest.
The new web and app-based language learning platform was developed in partnership by the Seven Generations Education Institute, the Rainy River District School Board, and SayITFirst, a company which uses technology and community participation to facilitate Indigenous language learning in Canada.
The program is designed to engage students by giving them a foundation for Anishinaabemowin, the Ojibwa language. It uses a campground setting where users complete activities and unlock achievements and tasks.
