Building a task-focused collaborative platform for kids: what we’re learning.
Wednesday, October 23 5:30 PM-7:00 PM Location: Pacific Ballroom
Abstract: The Alaska Humanities Forum Sister School Exchange program - which pairs classrooms in rural and urban Alaska - is the first “real world” implementation of our new task-focused online collaboration platform. Join Francis Pilon, CEO of The Jibe and Matthew Turner, Special Projects Program Manager at the Alaska Humanities Forum to hear about the lessons we have learned since it’s launch in September. The Jibe is an open source web development and digital strategy team based in Vancouver, BC. The Alaska Humanities Forum’s mission is to use the wisdom and methods of the humanities to enrich the civic, intellectual and cultural life of all Alaskans.
