Keeping learning active

By Taylor McClure, Special to The Record

The Ministry of Education and Higher Education and the Eastern Townships School Board recently launched new “online learning portals” that will allow students to continue to engage in their learning in fun and creative ways while at home. ‘The Open School’ and ‘Home Learning’ portals provide educational resources for students across all grades to help keep the brain, and students, active in the midst of social isolation.
On Monday, Minister of Education Jean-François Roberge announced the launch of the Ministry of Education’s new online Open School portal.
Up until at least May 4th, the Open School portal will provide a variety of pedological resources in both French and English for the families that are currently trying to help their children continue their education at home.
These online resources are available to students at the preschool, elementary, secondary, adult education, and vocational training level and they touch on a variety of subjects.
The resources provided in the Open School are meant to encourage a student’s independent learning and for them to learn in fun and creative ways. The activities can be adapted and support and help from family or peers may be required to help complete the activities depending on the student’s situation.
New activities and resources are expected to be added regularly to keep the learning experience interesting.
