  • Present: Dana, Michelle, Tata, Liam
  • Partner activity added to the site https://www.sojustrepairit.org/partners/
    • It’s all on one page right now
    • Might be good to break it up somehow
    • The photos really bring it to life
    • TIG - remove TBD section for now
    • Please provide any feedback on photos, layout, content etc!
    • What about videos? Tata has some videos she made in Fresno, particularly of the state of the road to the schools
    • Same goes for TIG - lots of video content
    • Would be good to add once we create individual pages for each partner
    • Consider the audience - low bandwidth vs high bandwidth
      • Embedded video won’t load
      • Compressed videos
    • Readability score on the content
    • Translated content?
    • Captions for images
    • Videos should be fully accessible
      • Translation into indigenous languages
      • English (at least) closed captions
    • Other thoughts on layouts
      • Partner sections collapsible
      • Organise by themes or categories?
      • Timeline would be nice too (both forward and backward looking)
        • Multi-year, multi-modal projects like this are unusual - would be great to make it visible to all the partners
        • This could change how we report out - perhaps by including more photos etc
      • Seeing all the other partners work is great
  • Future - some talk now about TIG / IDRC event related to Indigenous Rising Youth / Canada service Corps Alumni. Goal of meeting is to discuss how to make  the brand and a ‘culture of service” more resonant with Indigenous communities.

  • Staff meetings - more inclusive - Liam has been attending and leading on this
    • Staff members have been revealing disabilities to Liam
    • Providing useful info about how to organise and facilitate staff meetings
    • Wander walk - one of the activities - using as a kind of mini-pilot to run through the process of implementation and test it out
      • This content will make up the “Inclusive Activity Animation Guide”

      • Think it up, send to individuals, staff mtg for feedback, (others are facilitating too), reflection on how it went,
      • Another activity - Setting up priorities using Padlet (?)
      • These are part of the process and the guide
      • We have a remote team - half and half - some remote members want to be a part
      • Aiming to include a glossary - presenteeism - being there but not present
      • About 10 activities maybe
      • Could share the draft
      • Or have reviews at various “gates”
      • https://docs.google.com/document/d/10G7rYrkJcxL4RNgRlHXSwivwvvGdJXL5xsgBwr-1YDw/edit
  • School in Milton for kids with disabilities who reached out to TIG to come and speak
    • Maybe a storytelling workshop? Something with inclusive design principles
      • Let us know if you need help! Caren could help
      • Have to figure out what they want first
    • Doing it at their pace - let them lead
    • Is it related to Bridges Canada? They are a partner on C2LC

IDRC

  • Stories site
  • Sepideh and Caren have been gathering stories about learning, various schools in Toronto, in Halifax with newcomers
  • https://stories.floeproject.org/storyBrowse.html
  • Stories about learning, people on the margins, agency, activism
  • To play with story creation - you can use the demo that gets cleared each night http://staging-stories.floeproject.org/
  • Gregor working on some of the bugs that have been surfaced - continuous improvement
  • Caren working on next round design for the tool - where we want to take it in future
  • Built not just from SJRK, also FLOE, and Coding 2 Learn and Create (C2LC)
    • C2LC is a new project that’s happening at IDRC
    • Working with Beverley School
  • Tools for parents and siblings of the kids at Beverley School - kids with complex needs
  • Potential to connect with TIGs Code to Learn
  • Interim report coming up in May - phonecall with Oak
  • We want to have lots of things to show - e.g. the website
  • Probably also want to highlight the events we’ve done
    • Can we start a list - Dana will create a Google doc and share
  • Netlify - tool for authoring content - using on SJRK site - slightly better front end - with Hugo as static site generator
    • Not the most usable
    • Hoping it improves
    • Stuck on CMS’s for now
    • Prompted for alt-text for images which was good (did we set that up?)
  • No labels
