The “Task-Based Activities for LBS Online Portal” was created for Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) practitioners in Ontario. It contains task-based activities to use with adult learners. The Portal is an amazing resource to support instruction in the LBS classroom.

All the materials have been aligned to the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF). The activities are versatile and cover all five LBS goal paths; most definitely including independence. In fact, the Portal contains 263 activities designed for learners on the independence goal path. The activities on the Portal will also help practitioners to prepare learners to complete milestones.

All materials must go through a peer-review process in order to be used on the Portal. Materials are also reviewed for plain language and re-cast into OALCF language. Currently, there are 570 task-based activities from all goal paths on the Portal, including thousands of tasks. The materials on the “Task Based Activities for LBS Online Portal” are written at a variety of levels and are suitable for diverse goal paths and needs.

The slogan of the Khan Academy is “You can learn anything.” And with the free, online resources offered by the Khan Academy it’s true! The Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that allows learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom.

The Academy is geared primarily to elementary, high school, college and university students, but it contains many helpful resources for adult learners as well, particularly on the topic of math. Topics covered include math, grammar, careers, science and more.
