Magic Lantern Media has released new enhancements for its AccessSTEM learning platform including a new leading-edge user interface as well as curriculum correlations for British Columbia, Alberta, Nova Scotia, and Ontario.
Pilot programmes now running in seven school boards across four provinces are responding to the needs of learners to help equip them with 21st Century skills.
AccessSTEM responds to the need for 21st Century Learning through new “project based learning” tools added to the offering that has received rave reviews by Canadian educators. AccessSTEM provides an approach that is cross-curricular in nature, and will dramatically improve student performance. The tool allows teachers to have access to an incredible resource of performance and literacy tasks from grades K-12 linked to real-world video connections.
“Teachers are asked to have lessons that are engaging and relevant, cross-curricular, focus on 21st Century skills, differentiated learning, incorporate non-fiction reading and writing and provide an authentic assessment of their students understanding,” notes Doug Connolly, president of Magic Lantern Media. “We are great believers in STEM education and AccessSTEM strives to bring this incredible teaching platform and its 21st Century concepts to help teachers engage students.”
The enhancements announced today add to the common core standard aligned performance tasks, literacy tasks and new real-world videos that enable students to see the relevant, grade-specific topics through real-world careers and themes. Each of the resources allow students to apply concepts in simulated real-world scenarios, increasing student performance and preparing them for postgraduate study and 21st Century careers.
The company operates from offices in Toronto, Vancouver and Saint John, with over 50 agents and representatives worldwide.
