Today the 10th annual Nunavut Quest dog team race set off from the beginning point of Igloolik to the ending point of Arctic Bay. If all goes according to plan, the sledders should be arriving here in town on May 8th.
At school we have kicked the educational opportunities into high gear incorporating as much dog sled and dog team knowledge and activities into our lessons as possible gearing up to the sledders arrival.
After spending six years living and teaching in the Canadian Arctic (Nunavut and Yukon), I returned to the Maritimes to work at my Alma Mater, The University of New Brunswick, as the Media Lab Supervisor with the Centre for Enhanced Teaching and Learning. At the Media Lab I help faculty and students learn how to use instructional and media technology in their classes and projects.
