TORONTO, March 19, 2020 /CNW/ - As schools across the country close to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus and in support of learners, Pearson Canada and Kivuto are partnering to offer open access to digital learning resources for families.
"During this unprecedented and challenging time, we recognize that teachers, parents and caregivers are working hard to provide continuity and support for the learning experience. As Canada's learning company, we want to ensure that families have access to the same high quality, trusted resources that are used in classrooms across Canada everyday so that students have the resources they need to support their learning." says Marlene Olsavsky, Managing Director, Pearson Canada.
Through Kivuto's Texidium platform and eReader, families can access digital versions of over 70 of the most widely used curriculum-based elementary and secondary textbooks in the areas of literacy, math, science, French as a second language, and social studies.
Beginning today, these resources are available at www.pearsoncanada.ca/athome. Pearson will provide access to these resources until May 25, 2020.
