Alberta Aboriginal Training and Jobs: Transitional Themes


Have heard about our Facebook page, Alberta Aboriginal Training and Jobs (www.facebook.aboriginaltrainingjobs.com)  we will be launching a Transitional Theme series beginning on August 20th. The series will last for 4 weeks (August 20th – September 14th).

Every (work)day we will be making a few posts that will let our fans know about resources that can be useful for them when transitioning to urban centres. We have been working on collecting resources/web sites for the past few weeks. These include services, and supports from our GoA websites, Alberta Works locations, Federal and City websites, and various external websites, post secondary institutions, service providers, etc.

We are also very excited about using videos we have had made as part of the series!

We have 4 videos that explain a little about transitioning to an urban centre, how the resources found on our page can be helpful, and the videos feature a very popular Canadian Aboriginal action (these should get a lot of views)! We aim to post the first video the first week of September, hoping that more people will be checking Facebook at that time. We really want to promote this series, and take advantage of these videos for promoting what can be found on our page.

We would appreciate any support that can be provided by your area in promoting this series. This can be done through email contacts or on Facebook if you have access. Please let your contacts know to watch for this Transitional Series starting August 20th, as well as reminding them to check our page for more resources during this timeframe, and even sharing the videos when we post them.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks,

Digital Technology helps save Language


Aboriginal Teacher Education Program 2012

Digital technologies are the new life-savers for languages on the verge of extinction, linguists said Friday as they announced eight new dictionaries at a major science conference in Vancouver.
“We’re turning the digital divide into a digital opportunity,” said David Harrison, a National Geographic Fellow at Swarthmore College near Philadelphia.
More than half of some 7,000 languages alive today were considered on the verge of extinction within a century, “threatened by cultural changes, ethnic shame, government repression and other factors,” the scientists said in a paper.
But use of technologies, even by peoples without written languages, “is a heartening trend,” said Harrison. “Language extinction is not an inevitability.”…click here to read more
