New Virtual Workshop: An Indigenous Approach to Getting Started with Physical Literacy

Developed in consultation with Indigenous communities and educators, and with leadership from I·SPARC (Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity & Recreation Council), the School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project is excited to announce a new workshop available to B.C. educators: An Indigenous Approach to Getting Started with Physical Literacy!

This virtual workshop brings Indigenous perspectives that honour the First Peoples’ Principles of Learning to physical literacy theory. Educators have the opportunity to learn some practical ways to start developing their students’ physical literacy, and engage with other Indigenous communities in a storytelling method, to incorporate physical literacy in and around their school.
