Adapting a leading online resource for 21C Classrooms

Paul McMahon

3P Learning - Hong Kong office

3P Learning is a global company with leading online products like Mathletics and Reading Eggs. In this open forum, you will learn of the changes that our international development team have had to make to support schools switching to mobile devices and inquiry-based curricula.
With luck, other vendors might share how they are adapting resources that suit a very prescriptive curriculum to suit open-ended, student centered curricula.
Input from teachers using propriety resources or even designing their own online resources would be warmly welcomed.
Come along and help shape the future of educational resources!!
