    1. No Captures were found for this URL

      Seems an interesting thing to have, but no captures? Why? Is it a matter of crawling difficulties or something else?

    1. Mar 6, 2015

      None of the collections have been archived more than twice. While there is potential for this collection, its uses are limited to events before the archived date.

    1. 54 Total Results

      Many of the pages include social media sites used to spread news, opinions, and plans. It makes this event an example of how social media - such as youtube, twitter, and facebook - can spread the word about important issues from sources other than news reporters and gives a voice directly to actors involved in the dispute rather than information mediated through a secondary source.

    2. 2014

      Because this is a single even, captures occur much more frequently. This demonstrates that this even was considered important enough to capture and archive as it was happening.

    3. B.C. Teachers' Labour Dispute (2014)

      A much smaller and contained collection than some others because it refers to a specific event rather than documenting/archiving changes in particular organization or institution over time.

    1. Cree Language and Culture Twelve-Year Program Kindergarten to Grade 12

      Also includes programs that start at various levels of education, from a full 12 year program starting at the very earliest levels of education to a 3 year program for senior levels of education.

      First page in English to have an update. However, this one was only update once.

    5. Beaux-arts

    6. Bee Keeper Production Technician

      Interesting to note that secondary school curriculum contains courses that are both theoretical and passive as well as practical, active education opportunities.

    7. Aboriginal Studies 10-20-30

      Primarily, the course guide can provide historians with insights not only into the importance of Aboriginal Studies in Alberta, but also into the history that led to the creation of the education program as well as the major themes considered most important to be learned and passed on.

      While there are a great number of captures, there hasn't been an update to the page since its first capture in 2010, which, with the contemporary climate around Indigenous history in Canada and Indigenous rights, suggests that while this is an important topic, it's main themes and concerns may not be providing students with the proper depth of contemporary understanding of the issue.

    8. Alberta Education

      The preservation not only of education curriculum, but a record of how that curriculum changed in a five year period (between 2010-2015 are the current archive dates) could allow historians to examine how priorities have changed, what is considered important to teach the next generation and the expectations held by teachers and government organizations for the children they are educating.

    1. Collection of defunct pages

      While all of the pages were captured during the same three day period in 2015, there is still this record of webpages that were created, though they are no longer in use. This creates an archival record of what was considered important not only to publish in the first place, but was also acknowledged as important to preserve.
