This project began when Gichi-Onigaming, Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, and Cook County School District set out to increase the amount of Ojibwe language heard where learning takes place. These words are permanent teachers waiting to be discovered throughout the hallways, in the classrooms and around the building. With a quick QR connection to pronunciation they make it possible for beginners to dive in and experts to confirm they are part of a network of speakers.
Please send us photos of QR codes being installed or used in your community! Below are some photos from Cook County Schools in northern Minnesota. Send photos to Stacie Sheldon.
