Educators across Ontario are searching for new ways to teach during the COVID-19 school closures. Fitting curriculum into our new reality can be especially challenging for Skilled Trades teachers, SHSM and Technology instructors, and OYAP Coordinators as they are responsible for providing students with real-world on-the-job training opportunities. But in the current virtual learning environment made mandatory by COVID-19, educators require resources to help engage students at home, while continuing to teach about the careers and industries, technology, equipment and tools, job safety, and workplace experiences that adhere to Ontario curriculum expectations.
To meet this need, Edge Factor has aligned high impact videos, lesson plans, and interactive activities to the Ontario Technical Education Curriculum and the Ontario SHSM guidelines.
