BAFFIN ISLAND - INTERVIEW WITH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHER - APRIL 1987

Printer-friendly version

This is an interview I did with a teacher at the elementary school in Iqaluit (still referred to as Frobisher Bay at the time) on Baffin Island in the Northwest Territories (now part of Nunavut). We talk about how computers are important in such a remote place. Like we heard in the church service segment, kids were encouraged to be themselves, so there was a lot of background noise, but everyone was involved in a project and enthused by it. You can heat the interactions between the teacher and individual students. It was amazing to see how they were quickly mastering the technology. This was recorded in April 1987.
