Reintroducing Learning Bird
As consumers, we gravitate toward applications that are simple to set up, easy to learn and work seamlessly on all our devices. We enjoy tools that empower us without getting in the way. Naturally, educators feel much the same way about digital tools they use in their classrooms. That is why we’ve completely redesigned the Learning Bird user experience, so you can more easily locate and use our great content in your classroom.
New search filters
We’ve redesigned how we categorize our content to make it easier to find exactly what you are looking for. Subjects are now part of the filter panel, so you can quickly get to classroom-ready resources.
New class pages
Create a custom class page to share specific Learning Bird resources with your learners. You can organize content inside your class page to match how you teach. Navigate the app for great content and send it to your class. Your learners can then easily navigate to your class without logging in. In fact, we removed the need for student credentials altogether!
Work as a team to teach certain classes? You can now share class duties with a colleague by adding them as co-teachers.
Beautiful and easy to use on all devices
Learning Bird is fully responsive from tablet to desktop, providing a high-quality experience on all devices for both educators and learners. In addition, the class and viewing pages have been optimized to provide high contrast, which improves use with projectors, older displays, or situations where lighting is a challenge.
We are very excited to roll out the new Learning Bird platform. It is based on real-world feedback from our community partners across Canada in a spirit of partnership and collaboration. We look forward to your continued feedback and ideas about how we can make Learning Bird even better. Please reach out to me personally to share your ideas or comments. Let’s work together to bring classroom-ready content from Indigenous perspectives to classrooms from coast to coast!
