I thought I should put this video in context...

This is a video of students from my elementary school. Physical activity and personal health is now finally being looked at as having an important place in education (kinesthetic literacy... hmmm... does it work as a term?).

Name: Jocelyne Robinson

Program: CCFI

Activities: I'm enjoying my program of study which is to address the under-representation of aboriginal students  in the area of science & technology. I also take up the problem of aborignal language loss as it relates to different aspects of  education.  As an artist I enjoy working through ideas that can be incorporated in and out of my daily life. The movement of ideas creates an exciting place to be.  I also enjoy visiting local exhibits such as the Georgia O Keefe exhibit at the VAG. Lately I have been taking part in local running events.  You may notice that I have a coffee  cup in my hand. I love coffee and  a good read. I am  currently reading a book called "Pathways to Chance" by David F. Peat.


This picture was taken in the Classical Yuyan Garden in Shanghai China, 07.



Important things: My family. Some of us are in the pic. The adorabe young person in the middle is 12 year old daughter Mackenzie.

                            Understanding "Silence" and the role it plays in my life.

                            Children and Education as I think they are at the heart of understanding Democracy.


Academic interests: understanding the gap between what we know and what we do. Specifically as the gap relates to LGBTQ children and how they continue to be marginalized in public schools (probably all schools). If I can do more than just articulate the "gap" I will be a very happy person.


Activites: Well, when I am not reading...I love to play tennis, ski, board, hike, laugh...

Name: Valerie Triggs

Email: vtriggs@telus.net

Program: Centre for Cross-Faculty Inquiry

Activities: anything outside….love being a student again.

Current technology obsession: Adobe Illustrator – wondering how to express virtuality or potential for change by reducing an image to as few lines of tracing as possible and then eliminating the original – not just to make a different me but to draw changeability.  Here’s the automatic trace function…not quite ready to show you the other yet.
