UCN, Georgian partner to bring XR Indigenous language tools to UCN


University College of the North and Georgian College have signed an agreement to bring Georgian’s immersive, interactive Indigenous language teaching tools to UCN. Georgian’s Indigenous Peoples in XR Project uses virtual, hybrid, and augmented reality technology to provide context-based language learning to a broader community. UCN states that the two colleges share a goal of creating a community around the preservation, teaching, and sharing of Indigenous languages in Canada and around the world; by signing this agreement, UCN has become an ally of the Indigenous Peoples in XR Project. “This agreement represents an innovative approach to teaching Indigenous languages,” said UCN President Doug Lauvstad.
