Eighteen short months ago, EMC² opened its doors to a small but passionate community of creative teachers that we lovingly referred to as “Tinker Teachers” and “Engagement Engineers.” These teachers were eager, inspired, and excited to change the education game — and we were honored to share about 200 or so resources with them in hopes to help them harness the power of playful learning in classrooms around the world. But what we didn’t realize was just how strongly their creativity would inspire US to keep creating all kinds of new resources to match their boundless dedication to this noble profession.
In just 18 months, the number of resources available inside the EMC² Learning library has doubled. This morning, we added resource #401 (and counting)!
While this kind of growth is incredible, it can make it tricky to find just what you’re looking for. That’s why for the past three months, we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes putting in some serious work to provide a massive network of site upgrades that will help our incredible community of rock star teachers get the job done even better for the new school year. And today, we’re thrilled to announce our BIGGEST. SITE. UPDATE. EVER. Which includes…
+ Streamlined TOP LEVEL CATEGORIES for FASTER LESSON PLANNING
+ All-new collections of TIMERS, GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS & STUDY AIDS
+ Sneak peek COLLECTION DESCRIPTIONS for smarter searching
+ More than A DOZEN BRAND NEW RESOURCES
If you’re anything like us, then you probably loved going back to school with an all new collection of color-coded notebooks and folders to help you start the year off on the right foot (we all agree that the green notebook was always reserved for science, right?). This year, EMC² Learning is proud to offer our Engagement Engineers a star-studded lineup of 12 neatly organized top-level library categories to help you find exactly what you’re looking for in record time.
As the library of resources available inside the EMC² Learning platform continues to grow, we realize that it’s easy to lose track of all the cool stuff that keeps making its way into the site. That’s why, starting today, you’ll notice that sneak peek description blurbs have been added for every single top-level category and activity collection on the site.
(And if John does his job right this week, we’ll have similar bite-sized activity descriptions available for EVERY. SINGLE. INDIVIDUAL. RESOURCE. by next Monday)!
Did somebody say “new resources?” You betcha. New twists on old favorites. Plug-and-play collections of fully illustrated timers. Printable (AND EDITABLE!) graphic organizers. And entirely new activities designed to help you boost student engagement and excitement in everything from mastering new strategies for content literacy to locking in what they’ve learned through at-home review. With more than 400 resources (and counting!) — the hits truly keep on coming. We can’t wait to see what you’ll do with them!
The activities featured in this blog post are just a handful of the 400+ resources available in the EMC² Learning library. This entire library is available to Engagement Engineers and members of the Creative Corps, and is included with your annual site membership. We hope you’ll consider joining us as an Engagement Engineer to unlock a full year of site access.
