ERAC’s Math Pilot Well Underway
Congratulations to the 20 teachers involved in ERAC’s Math Pilot project! All of the schools involved will be exploring the integration of Minecraft to support Mathematical learning. Schools will also be using one of the ERAC evaluated and approved Digital Math Resources including Dreambox Learning, Mangahigh, or Math Help Services. All together we have 10 schools involved province wide, 20 very enthusiastic teachers and 9 quality products to use. Vendors are now working with the schools to get the accounts set up. Of the 10 schools, we have six from outside the lower mainland which include 3 in Quesnel, 1 in Kootenay Lakes, 1 in Kootenay Columbia and 1 in Mission. Students involved are from Grade 1 to 12 in this Math Pilot. When recently visiting one of the schools, the students there quickly showed their excitement and that they couldn’t wait to get started. Great news for the Mathematics teacher! We’ll be sure to update you as we progress on this new Math Pilot.
