Ingleside - Mar. 25, 2011 - Class has just gotten a bit more interesting for Grade 9 students at Rothwell-Osnabruck School in Ingleside.

Local MPP Jim Brownell has joined forces with Pearson Canada to donate Live Ink, a new educational resource, to Grade 9 students at the South Stormont high school.

Live Ink includes print and digital resources that provide students with access to content in ways that are familiar and preferred. After presenting the resource to the school on Friday, Brownell and the students were treated to a demonstration of the digital content of the package. The students were pleased with the new resource, and looking forward to exploring its potential further.

The donation was part of a campaign by the Canadian Educational Resources Council (CERC) to raise awareness of the importance of Canadian educational resources in 21st century learning.

Brownell said the government must continue to work with teachers and organizations like CERC to ensure students have every opportunity to succeed.

"The world our children will inherit is going to be an increasingly integrated one, with opportunities and challenges we can't conceive of today,” said Brownell.

Pearson Canada is a member of the CERC, an association whose members produce 80 per cent of the student learning resources currently used in Canadian schools.

CERC resources are created by teachers for teachers, incorporating learning and teaching best-practices from front-line educators. CERC supports teachers as professionals and empowers students by giving them the tools they need to learn effectively.
