DSF 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.

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.
