Indigenous Education Tools is a growing site (check back for new resources often) that offers teaching tools and resources that address the “root causes of inequities for Native children and families, and by supporting the development of innovative successful educational pathways.”
A few highlights of the current resources on the site include:
- A set of short briefs in the style of STEM Teaching Tools that dig into topics in education of Indigenous peoples:
- A set of videos led by leaders in Indigenous education. See interview with Michael Tulee below as an example:
- A set of Learning Materials (from ISTEAM) based around Water, Food, Birds and Plants. Everything on this site is powerful but I find these materials to be the highlight for me personally. These materials highlight well-crafted activities and also provide models of what well-designed learning activities might look like when designed for Indigenous learners. See the set on Water below:
- Online workshops to engage in asynchronously
- Dr. Ananda Martin presenting on: Synthesis of child development and Indigenous ways of knowing
I also highly recommend adding @IndigenousSTEAM to your Twitter feed so that you can stay on top of the latest from this group.
