On this episode of the Root & STEM podcast, Andrew McConnell, the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Education Coordinator for the YRDSB, shares the importance of Indigenous knowledge and voices in youth learning. He identifies the areas in which the education of youth and adolescents can be enhanced to include the viewpoints of various Indigenous communities. Andrew describes why non-Indigenous educators teaching Indigenous ideas fall short, before explaining how a change in pedagogy can assist in creating a deeper understanding of Indigenous science and ideas in students.
