21st Century Learning - Links to Our Collection
An educational website for grades 3 - 12
www.glenbow.org/programs/school/21C/
These online modules and supplemental education guides were developed by our team of curators and educators to allow teachers and students online access to hundreds of images from Glenbow's collections. Use images of artworks and artifacts to plan a lesson about contemporary art and the sharing of ideas, or to discover the captivating stories of the vastly different peoples of Alberta and Canada.

Nitsitapiisinni: Our Way of Life
An educational website for students in grades 4 - 6

The Story of the Blackfoot People website activities are designed to encourage learners as they discover the complexity and uniqueness of Blackfoot history and culture. Developed in partnership with members of the Blackfoot community, the site explores how the Blackfoot people lived with the land, the bison, their families and other people. Also available is a Teacher Toolkit which includes strategies for teachers to use the website in class.

Mavericks: An Incorrigible History of Alberta
An educational research website for students in grades 4 - 7
www.glenbow.org/mavericks
This online learning resource tells the story of our province through the lives of over 40 mavericks - individuals including Jerry Potts, John Ware and Colonel Macleod, among others, who have contributed to Alberta's history. Students can access over 500 artifacts, maps, archival documents and historic photographs from Glenbow's diverse collection that help tell the story of the different maverick personalities and Alberta's history.

This project was made possible with the support of the Department of Canadian Heritage through Canadian Culture Online.

Seven Stories
An educational research website for students in grades 10 - 12
www.glenbow.org/sevenstories
Over the past 20 years, Calgary has become increasingly diverse as we welcome immigrants from around the world. Meet seven Calgarians, originally from Southeast Asia, who chose Canada as their new home. They share their personal stories - how they left the land of their birth, the challenges they faced and the new roots they have found in Canada. This online resource offers students an opportunity to consider the hardships immigrants face when moving to a new culture and how their cultures have shaped the face of communities in Calgary.

Glenbow gratefully acknowledges the financial investment by the Department of Canadian Heritage in the creation of this online presentation originally developed for the Virtual Museum of Canada's Museum Learning Space Agora.
