Welcome ERAC Members to the improved BC Digital Classroom, designed to specifically meet the individual needs of Districts and Schools! The BC Digital Classroom has two key components:
1. The “BC Digital Classroom Core Collection” contains a mix of some new and some old resources for the same low price!
2. A list of resources provided on an à la carte menu that you can buy individually as optional add-ons to the Core Collection. You must buy the Core Collection before you can order options from the à la carte menu.
- In 2015 we were able to add new titles to the BC Digital Classroom Core Collection and keep the price the same as the original bundle by licensing each resource for fewer grades
- If the grades ERAC has licensed for the BC Digital Classroom Core Collection don’t meet all of your needs, you can license additional grades at an additional cost via the à la carte menu
- The BC Digital Classroom Core Collection has:
- something for every grade, including content for primary students for the very first time
- new science content for both elementary and secondary
- new secondary resources from Gale and myBlueprint.ca
- some of your favorite Canadian resources
- many of your favorites from World Book and EBSCO that were already in the Online Database Bundle
Why all the change? Because ERAC members asked for it! Find out more about how we got here by reading the FAQ
