In addition to the collaboration with Dr. Waugh from the University of Alberta, the project secured the
use of another dictionary from Professor Arok Wolvengrey of the First Nations
University of Canada in Regina.
Professor Wolvengrey has been instrumental in providing this project with linguistic and grammatical support for the Cree language and the different dialects. He is working on expanding his existing dictionary with additional contents and examples.
In addition to translation function the system will allow the creation of flash cards and storyboard using the picture and the words (syllabics and English) from the database. Others features will be managed educational games such as word matching and puzzles. These games will have testing component to assess student learning. The system will include a database of Cree language lesson plans that will guide teachers in integrating First Nation Languages in the curriculum.
