Get Ready For Our New Name and New Look!

Posted by Jasmine Wong on October 23, 2014

Since we began our blog two years ago, our goal has always been to recognize the amazing work of the teachers we work with in Canada. We wanted to give voice to these individuals, to create a community that dialogued about what's important to student learning, and to provide a window into what education can look like when partnered with Facing History and Ourselves.

When our blog launched, we were mostly working with teachers in the Greater Toronto Area, so the writers, stories, and classrooms–as well as our blog name–reflected that. But as our in-person work has grown beyond these bounds to reach educators across Canada–in Quebec, Manitoba, British Columbia, and as far as the North West Territories–our blog has started to reflect voices, stories, and classrooms from these communities across Canada. It is time to change our name. Tomorrow, OnNetwork becomes Facing Canada.

What does this mean for you, our reader?
