David Suzuki Foundation Virtual Classroom
As many as 12,000 Canadian high school students and their teachers will have real-time access to renowned scientist Dr. David Suzuki on November 1 and 2 through a new virtual classroom experience. The virtual program is being delivered through a partnership between the National Film Board of Canada and the David Suzuki Foundation.
The conversation will focus on many of the important themes depicted in the award-winning film Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie. Students will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Suzuki a wide range of questions, including ones about consumption, population, sustainable development, Japanese and Canadian history, science, technology and the future of the planet.
It is the first time the NFB has been in a position to offer thought-leading expertise and educational content in real time and simultaneously with teachers and students from across Canada. It’s an advancement using technology that could help change how students are taught in the future.
