All Inuit communities in Arctic Canada are situated on coasts and depend on sea ice knowledge for safety in travelling and hunting. Changing and unpredictable sea ice conditions, coupled with lack of supporting information during both the freezing and melting seasons leaves a gap in the information required to know where dangerous conditions exist. Using the OECD Learning Compass 2030 framework as a guide, a curriculum to build Inuit geospatial capacity in remote sensing and GIS is being designed with local Inuit knowledge of sea ice conditions, using Inuit learning principles. The Learning Compass framework aligns with the need for the curriculum to be holistic, emphasizing student agency and transformative competencies.
