Project Hero - Get Involved

If you're a teacher looking for an exciting project for your classroom that combines numerous learning benefits with creativity, community building and digital media, look no futher?

Join us to challenge your students to answer the question, “who’s your hero?”

The challenge

Have your class create digital biographies about people they admire in their communities – teachers, principals, parents, grandparents; we want to hear from them all!

Other schools have done this!  Check out their stories.

How it’s done

Challenge your students to work together in groups to select an individual in their community to be the star subject in their digital biography.

Encourage them to plan and capture their biography in a fun, creative way using whatever technological resources you have available in your classroom (videos, digital images, Powerpoints, audio).

Finally, submit your class’s projects to us and add to Canada's living history. 

Check out our sample project plan to learn more.
