Children living in remote communities often have little access to quality education. Proven educational resources that encourage children’s curiosity and enjoyment of learning can have a significant impact on their literacy, numeracy, and overall achievement. CAUSE Canada is taking quality resources to remote communities through the Integrated Learning Resource Centre and Mobile Learning Labs. These centres and labs are facilitating clear improvements in children’s achievements. In 2017-18, children who prepared for their standardized exams using resources from a Learning Lab achieved a 90% pass rate – a pass rate that was previously only 30%.
When children use a tablet in a Learning Lab, they are able to access high quality educational programs and learning resources.
