The Kahn Acadamy is a non-profit on-line resource that offers free support for all grade levels in a wide variety of subjects ranging from math and reading to science, computing and the humanities. The organization produces short lessons in the form of videos. Its website also includes supplementary practice exercises and materials for educators.
Dane Wajich Website
Our Doig River First Nation elders, youth, and leaders worked collaboratively with ethnographers, linguists, and web-designers to create an on-line educational program, called Dane Wajich Dane-zaa Stories and Songs: Dreamers and the Land. The site is complete with lesson plans for both elementary and high school aged students. Learn about Dane-zaa history and culture through an exciting mix of video and sound files, photographs and text.
Beaver Language Learning Resources
DRFN has spent decades working with language experts to record and develop educational materials for their Dane-zaa Záágéʔ language. Their learning resources include audio files so learners can hear the words directly from a community member and then try the pronunciation themselves. Find out more by visiting our Language Learning Resources page here.
