Have you ever read the book and mathematical folktake One Grain of Rice from Demi? It’s an amazing story about a young girl who saves her village by using the simple math concept of doubling.  In the process she teaches the ‘raja’ or ‘king’ a lesson about what it truly means to be wise and fair. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, this lesson is quite relevant and teaches the students the importance of sharing and thinking outside the box.  I just love the message and I think you will too! 

Here is the matrix lesson More Than a Grain of Rice created into a e-learning hyperdoc, E-Learning – More Than a Grain of Rice.  Check it out.  Let me know what you think, share it with your students, other teachers and parents. 

For Educators

Teachers!  I want to make this brief & straightforward.  How can I help you?  I do not want to email you by bugging you or adding more to your plate (another email!), but I want to help.  One thing that I thought could be helpful is transforming some lessons from our Curriculum Matrix into Hyperdoc e-learning lessons.  Our team has already created some of these for guiding student learning on our AgMag site – check it out here.  I have some favorite lessons from the Curriculum Matrix I was going to start creating e-learning lessons to share with you and then it hit me.  I should ASK you what you want. 

  • Do you have a favorite lesson from the  Curriculum Matrix you want me to create into an e-learning lesson?
  • Do you have a topic you are trying to cover that you would like me to find a lesson that connects to that topic and create an e-learning lesson or find one out there that is already created?

Let me know what other lessons or topics you would like created into e-learning lessons by emailing me at toni.maitc@gmail.com.  I will get back to you and let you know how I can help.  We will post all e-learning lessons on our MAITC website for you to use & share!  Happy e-learning!!
