Mapping Canada’s History of Residential Schools with Google Earth

“As the first Canadian organization to launch a story with Google Earth Voyager, Canadian Geographic, with the support of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, offers an in-depth look at the residential school system.

The Google Earth Voyager story weaves photographs and video links with firsthand accounts from residential school survivors. Quotes are taken directly from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report The Survivors Speak.

Canadian Geographic Education encourages teachers to make use of this story as an educational resource and as a launching off point for important discussions with their students.”  [website quote]
