Our Top 10 Online Resources for Homeschooling Parents

Updated: Apr 17


1. IXL

This is the site our Changemaker students use for extra math and literacy practice. This site offers game-like questions in math and literacy that are aligned with the Alberta curriculum. We like how it gives students instant feedback after each question and that most students say it’s a lot of fun.


2. Outschool

Some of our Changemaker teachers are already teaching on this live Zoom-based platform. There are unique interest-based classes offered in every subject for every age group. While you do have to pay for each class you enrol in, they are typically only $5-$15 for 45-min to an hour and the class sizes are small. Most classes are taught by a professional teacher or subject specialist and you can choose from a one-time class or recurring weekly programs. Get $20 of FREE classes by using our invitation link.
