Ontario school boards are asking for resources that can aid them in the delivery of, “modern and quality online learning.” Hundreds of organizations and private businesses put forward solutions to problems that historically have impeded learning from home.

After thoroughly reviewing all of these proposals, we are honoured to have the Ontario Government share our K-3 math learning platform with their school boards. 

“Zorbit is an excellent resource for both in-class and remote instruction,” said Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education.  “We know that we must do all we can to mitigate learning loss, in particular STEM-related learning, during this unprecedented time. We’re delighted that Zorbit will continue access to their platform for all Ontario summer school programs.”
