Stay home: Learn Cree – 12. itwêwina Click-in-text Reading Tool

While we’re all in isolation, we’re going to try to post one video a day from Sol’s existing teaching library, and the teaching libraries of some of his friends. Like Sasquatch himself, Solomon Ratt has experience with self isolation. Who better to help out with online Cree lessons for remote learning?  

Today’s video demonstrates the itwêwina click-in-text Reader tool. The click-in-text tool is built in to the Cree Literacy Network (you can tell it’s working when you see the at the left edge of the screen).

This reading tool is directly linked to the itwêwina online dictionary (based on the Wolvengrey dictionary), and is currently under development at the Alberta Language Technology Laboratory (or AltLab) at the University of Alberta.
