LEARN (Leading English Education and Resource Network) is a non-profit educational organization with a mandate to serve the English-speaking community of Quebec. Building on the merger of three organizations in July 2005, LEARN has developed a variety of resources and services.
LEARN accomplishes this by offering a wide range of resources and services at no charge. These services and resources include elementary and secondary level teaching tools and content; professional learning; community, school and parental support; as well as a full range of online services through the LEARN Virtual Campus.
PAUSE is an awareness campaign promoting a balanced use of the Internet and preventing the risks associated with hyperconnectivity.
Specifically, PAUSE encourages teens, young adults and their families to stop and think about their digital habits and take action to improve them. PAUSE gives us tools so we can benefit from the advantages the Internet has to offer, without its harmful effects. It’s also an invitation to enjoy the benefits of offline moments on “airplane mode.”
Finally, PAUSE aims to become a movement that encourages Quebecers to regain control of their screen use and prioritise connections that really matter, both online and offline.
The name PAUSE highlights the importance of regularly unplugging. Pauseyourscreen.com serves as a reminder to develop the impulse needed to help us accomplish this.
The suggested educational activities on this platform are intended for all children and are aimed at encouraging their continued learning. However, it is possible that your child needs specific support to carry out these activities at home, as a result of learning difficulties or a disability.
This ressource provides different strategies to help parents support their children’s learning. It also offers different resources that may address your concerns.
