Title : The International Indigenous Virtual Exchange and Using Online Tools in the Indigenous Classroom.
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

The International Indigenous Virtual Exchange (IIVE) project envisages to take the same positives of the International Virtual Exchange (IVE) outlined by Eric Hagley in the keynote speech, and apply them to indigenous groups around the world. The unique position of the presenter being of indigenous heritage himself (New Zealand Maori) and living in Hokkaido, home of the indigenous Ainu of Japan, provides the initial reasoning for the project. Indigenous classes are already being taught by the presenter he will show how CALL, specifically through the modified Moodle Forum, including reaction buttons for quick reader feedback and also an improved interface, can achieve the IIVE. Improvements should help with user 'buy-in' especially with the expected non technology savvy users. The main focuses of the project are to help indigenous support each other with language and cultural survival and revival, grievances and self-determination. The forum, quizzes and also knowledge and content sharing will start with Ainu and Maori and then move further afield to include other interested indigenous groups, particularly those in Australasia and Asia.  Concluding the presentation in a discussion intends to draw feedback from participants and also find collaborators and contacts for the set up and running of the project.
