Technical Requirements for Content Providers Delivering your session requires a computer with a high-speed Internet connection (1 Mbps or above) and the free Cisco WebEx soware. The school lead you work with will be able to help arrange a test prior to delivering your first session. Our team will follow up with you to determine and arrange the best method for your connection. Materials for Classrooms To ensure that students have access to a highly interactive hands-on experience, you may want to consider what materials would be helpful to have available as part of the session. In most cases, it is best to limit expectations as schools do not necessarily have access to a wide range of supplies or other tools. If physical materials are needed to support your session, we have a small budget to assist with facilitating some requests related to supplies. Please speak with the school coordinator about your request, which may require 3-4 weeks for shipping prior to the session. There are oen shipping delays so even if supplies are ordered, there is no guarantee that it will reach the school in time. If you have interaction ideas that might rely on other technologies and digital devices, please note that many schools do not have access to high-speed internet outside of the Telepresence unit. Interdisciplinary Approach Supporting interdisciplinary learning and helping students navigate their understanding of their own identity in relation to their community and the world can be strengthened by making linkages between Western Worldviews and Indigenous Worldviews . We aim to provide experiences that 1 balance both Indigenous and Non-Indigenous perspectives across a broad range of curriculum areas, with an approach that is respectful of each distinct community that we are partnering with.
