Study: Ontario teachers turn to free online resources amid budget cutbacks
from Toronto Star
Ontario teachers are turning to free online resources in droves — more than textbooks and e-textbooks — marking a "significant change" in learning, says a new report that raises questions about how to ensure the quality of web materials used in the province's classrooms. The survey of 1,349 Ontario schools by People for Education found when elementary teachers need new materials, 36 per cent of school report they turn to the web for freebies, 31 per cent say print textbooks and 19 per cent online resources produced by publishers, for which there would be a cost.
