Ontario Curriculum E-Learning Resources

What are Ontario Curriculum E-Learning Resources?

A group of Brock University teaching candidates combined their sport expertise and knowledge of the Ontario secondary curriculum, to create free, open-access units of study for online teaching. These e-learning resources work to integrate sport across multiple curriculum areas and connect to several courses throughout the Ontario curriculum.

There are two comprehensive units of study:

1. Sport: A Connection to Health and Society

This e-learning resource connects health, society, and sport. Content deals with a wide range of topics including: mental health, physical and social wellbeing, nutrition, anatomy, sexual health, privilege, fair play, sports in adulthood, peer pressure and addiction, as well as sport theory across the sciences (physics, chemistry, and biology).

This resource includes content from the following Ontario curriculum areas:

2. Evolution and Development of Sport in Canada

This e-learning resource outlines how Canadian sport (both amateur and professional) have developed and evolved alongside an ever-changing society. This resource is divided into three time periods: 1860-1944, 1945-1980, and 1980- present, and focuses on three major areas of sport for each period: the history of sport, social justice issues in sport, and the business of sport.

How Can Ontario Curriculum E-Learning Resources Help You?

With the COVID-19 crisis shining a spotlight on online curriculum development in Ontario, it is now more important than ever to create contemporary online resources for secondary students. Creating activities that are informative, interesting, and fun to complete is essential for knowledge retention as well as overall satisfaction with a learning experience.

The Brock teaching candidates who created these e-learning resources designed their lessons with teachers in mind, giving teachers the opportunity to use the content as they wish and mold the various modules to their liking. Both sites are also very easy to navigate, allowing teachers and students the freedom to move through lessons with ease.
