PEC:  Pinnacle Education Collaborative

In June of 2015, several CILC Content Providers banded together to form the Pinnacle Education Collaborative (PEC). Pinnacle Education Colloborate logoOne of our top priorities is to offer "Festivals" throughout the year that will provide unique learning experiences for students based on over-arching themes.

During Festivals the PEC Content Provider group will be offering their interpretation of the festival theme in the form of dozens of standards-based, interactive programs for K-12 and Lifelong Learners. You will see amazing prices on these progras from the PEC Content Providers!

"What Floats Your Boat" was the first festival of the 2015-2016 School year. During the week of October 5-9, 2015, the PEC Content Providers reached over 1,000 participants.

The next festival will Discover Digital Learning May 9-13, 2016. To find programs that are part of the Discover Digital Learning Festival go to the Interactive Content and search the Content Provider database for programs with #DiscoverDL and you will find a list of programs from Content Providers that are participating in the festival.

Reaction from CILC Member

“We recently completed a plant unit and this was the perfect reinforcement of skills. It would be a great way to start the unit as well. We already talked about using this next year.”
