Abstract

Student multimedia projects are the topic of this qualitative case study that explores perceptions of community members living in a remote northwestern British Columbian (Canada) First Nations village. Connections are made between the projects and what participants say is important in the education of their children. Theories of cultural compatibility, cognition, and cultural historical activity theory (CHAT) underlie culturally based education (CBE) initiatives that these student technology projects exemplify. Participatory and decolonizing methodologies are emphasized in the use of open-ended interviews, community presentations and meetings to open up discussion about ways in which the technology projects support student success as well as their First Nations culture.
