At Home Learning Through The Arts

At Home Learning Through The Arts

For the past 25 years through its Learning Through The Arts (LTTA) division, The Royal Conservatory has continued its leading role in the development of arts-based methodologies that meet the learning needs of young people across Canada working with teachers to reclaim the productivity and positive relationships that are the hallmark of the best classrooms. Given these unprecedented times, we have also developed a resource that supports math learning at home. 
 
MathBeat is a program for students in Grades 4 to 8. Using an innovative web app, students learn about fractions, ratios, and unit rates while they create and analyse rhythms and melodies. The math content has been vetted by an Ontario math specialist.

Please watch the videos and then try our beta version.

YouthBeat taps into two things that many students love: today’s music and technology. Successfully piloted in First Nations communities, YouthBeat is an iOS iPad app and teacher resource program that was created for generalist teachers and has been designed to boost engagement with music, language arts, social studies, and math.

Download the free YouthBeat iOS app on your iPad. Please note, this app is only available on the iPad.

Students in Grades 4-8/Ages 9-13 can explore the DNA of music and their inner and outer worlds in ten fun-filled episodes uploaded each week.

MathBeat resources are primarily designed to support educators who are conducting math work sessions remotely with their classroom. We have ten resources currently in development which will cover operations related to proportional reasoning, with units focusing on fractions, unit rates, units, ratios, and proportion and symmetry in geometry.

They are structured in three-part lesson plans with Minds-On, Activity, and Reflection/Self Assessment/Application sections and support key math learning.
