How would you define innovative learning? What kind of value would you place on it?
At the Bella Bella Community School on Campbell Island in British Columbia, Canada, innovative learning is priority. Here, teachers focus on curricula and activities that incorporate their rich community traditions with the “acquisition of skills needed to succeed in both the traditional and modern worlds.”
In 2012, a handful of students at the Bella Bella Community School embarked on a project that allowed them to explore the traditions of their remote community while making connections with their everyday lives. Learn more about this innovative school and the students that help it thrive.
