From April 2021 - June 2023, all Focused ED members have access to new e-resources. These are separate from licenses for the BC Digital Classroom collection.

About the Resources

Twig is aimed at Grade 6-9, containing 1,000+ award-winning, 3-minute videos that combine visual and adaptive learning, supported by hundreds of lesson plans, visuals, and other classroom resources.

Tig Tag is designed for Grade 3-5 and contains engaging videos, visual resources, lesson plans, and quizzes that allow teachers to simplify tricky scientific concepts for students.

Tigtag Junior is aimed at K-Grade 2 and is a complete online resource for younger children, introducing foundational science in a simple, fun, and engaging way.

K-Grade 5 teachers - sign up for Twig Science Reporter to receive a weekly newsletter, with a topical article, linked to lessons and videos in TigTag.

Accessing Resources

Teachers need to create an account for either TigTag or Twig in order to use the resources. Contact your school teacher-librarian or district lead contact for the authentication information.

Login information for all public schools and all independent schools with subscriptions to the BC Digital Classroom collection. 

Independent schools who have not licensed BC Digital Classroom have been provided with a unique access to these resources and to a sub-set of 4Canoes Indigenous Resources. Ask your school's lead contact for the confidential information.
