ORIGO Education’s Animated Big Books has been announced as the Educational Publishing Australia Awards 2021 Student Resource – Mathematics (Numeracy) winner.
The Educational Publishing Awards Australia is a prestigious annual event that rewards excellence and innovation in the industry. Known as the EPAAs, they are coordinated by the Australian Publishers Association and celebrate the role publishing plays in supporting educators and students in early childhood, primary, secondary and tertiary/VET education.
ORIGO Education published the Animated Big Book series in 2020 in an effort to support the growing need for digital learning resources and is thrilled to receive the prestigious award for a resource that has been widely appreciated and utilised by primary school mathematics teachers and students alike.
The Animated Big Books for Foundation–Year 2 are designed to teach mathematic concepts and skills conceptually in a logical, learner-friendly sequence. Animated Big Books align to specific content descriptors with the Australian Curriculum (Mathematics) and are ideal for introducing important topics.
These resources encourage teachers to share the love of reading in the classroom and engage our earliest learners in discourse and discussion about mathematical ideas like never before.
Animated Big Books enhance instruction and engage students during in-person or distance learning lessons and include many benefits such as:
- supporting maths proficiency strands related to discourse, critique and reason.
- suitable for a range of classroom settings such as whole group, small group and independent reading.
- rich questions that encourage inference, rigor and discussion.
- have embedded vocabulary support.
- require minimal teacher preparation and can be used by parents in an at home environment.
The EPAA judging panel said, “The Animated Big Books Series (F–2) uses a creative approach to learning and teaching. It is a fun, engaging way to introduce students to maths concepts and provides teachers with a variety of learning opportunities that they can choose from and adapt to their class needs.
