Welcome to ADIA Educational Resources Official Website,

 

Our Organization

ADIA provides products, services, and resources that help educators achieve success. Our focus is science subject areas at all grade levels including primary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities in Canada.  Products are used to teach concepts and understanding in classrooms and labs.  Resources include written materials, informational background, lesson plans, expected outcomes, assessment tools and more.  Services include curriculum alignment consulting, product training, technical support and professional development workshops.

 

Our Approach

ADIA Educational Resources was founded on the idea that the path to success in science education is continuous but that there are discrete benchmarks to learning along the way.  This is symbolized in the success continuum of Ask, Discover, Innovate, and Achieve.

 

ASK

All good learning starts with a question.  Curiosity and inquisitiveness are a natural part of the human condition. The ability to recognize and encourage the natural interests of the learner is a well used strategy for achieving successful learning results in science.  A good teacher is one who can nurture natural curiosity acting as the conduit & facilitator for learning.  A key is to have the right information, resources, and tools available.

DISCOVER

Humans are unique in the universe in that we alone can act upon information. Perhaps this concept is best embodied in the application of the scientific method.  We propose theories, we test hypothesis’, we gather data, we analyze results, we interact with others, we communicate ideas, and we individually, & collectively, expand the sum total of what is known. We discover for ourselves.  We also recognize & understand what has been discovered by others. Each succeeding generation does not need to re-discover the value of π or to reinvent the wheel.  We can use what is known, from our own experiences or from the experiences of others, to learn and to understand more.

INNOVATE

Every person has the ability to innovate; to take an existing condition and to add personal experience to achieve something completely new and different.  We do this daily within our own lives.  Occasionally, individuals are capable of producing innovation so profound that it has deep meaning, and implication, for the human species as a whole. Past experience demonstrates that innovation of this rank and magnitude does not take place in a vacuum.  The integration of ideas from many subject areas and the making of connections, some that appear entirely unrelated, are what ultimately lead to true innovation.

ACHIEVE

Achievement is rarely handed out arbitrarily. We learn that it takes hard work, dedication, and discipline.  The ability to define the goal, to develop a systematic approach, to recognize completion helps us to achieve a true measure of success. It is not always about the destination, but about how you get there. However, you have to know where you are going before you can arrive.
