Keewaytinook Okimakanak and our partners are hosting two information sessions to present the results of the KO survey about the online services being provided by KO along with the use of ICTs in remote First Nations that was conducted during the month of November, 2011. Every person with an @knet.ca email address was invited to participate in the online survey.
Everyone is very welcome to join us on Friday afternoon (April 20) at:
1pm Central - a videoconference with KO First Nations to present the information obtained from 131 responses to the survey from KO First Nation community members indicating their feedback about the KO online programs and services;
3pm Central - an online Breeze session and videoconference with a discussion board for comments, questions and chat during the event ... here's the notice about how to participate:
As part of the VideoCom project - http://videocom.firstnation.ca, KO-KNET - http://www.knet.ca and the University of New Brunswick - http://www.unb.ca conducted a survey of First Nations community connectivity in Northwestern Ontario in November 2011.
The response was excellent - 568 completed surveys and 95 partly-completed surveys, for 663 surveys in total. Analyzing the survey responses will help us understand the experiences of remote First Nations community members with broadband technologies, ICT, and Keewaytinook Okimakanak online services, and how they can be improved in the future.
In April 2012, we completed two reports (ppt presentations) based on the survey responses - the reports can be downloaded from this page on the VideoCom site:
We will present these reports during two separate online presentations on April 20, one held by videoconference for Keewaytinook Okimakanak community members, and a second presentation for everyone who completed the survey and guests, held via Breeze. Please join us for this second event ... login to Breeze at 3pm Central on Friday, April 20:
Presenters will be Geordi Kakepetum at the KO Dryden office, Brian Beaton and Crystal Kakekaspan at the K-Net office in Sioux Lookout, ON, Susan O'Donnell of the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, NB, and Kerri Gibson, also UNB, in the Annapolis Valley, NS.
