A new TIME For Kids classroom publication titled Technology for All: Wi-Fi Around the World cites the work of young Arviat filmmakers and includes voices from the community describing the stories they want to share.
The 30-page booklet was written for elementary school readers and was made possible with support from Arviat youth and parents to co-authors David Bjerklie and Tim Pasch when they visited in the summer of 2016.
The book will be used in classrooms in the United States and other countries around the world.
Copies and more information about the book can be found here.
