Innovative learning in NWT school vital to develop 21st Century learning skills

Developing strong 21st Century learning skills at the Chief Albert Wright School is “vital” says Principal Lorraine Kuer for students in this remote area of the North West Territories to succeed later in the workplace and in post-secondary education.

Imperial’s Norman Wells, NT operations donated $10,000 to the school’s Science, Culture and Technology programming. In the first half of the 2014-2015 school year, students focused on science and its connection with the land, traditions and culture of the local area.

Technology is infused in how students research, present and publish their findings. The school has also invested in field trips and non-fiction reading materials across all grades, kindergarten to grade 12, to further stimulate student interest in inquiry-based learning.
