Help students think deeper, learn and collaborate to maximize achievement.
The concept of The Learning Carpet™ sprung from an elementary classroom in 1978 where a teacher believed students learn best when they are actively engaged and working with others to learn. Although the philosophy is widely accepted in teaching today, it was bold at the time.
She built a prototype and put it into action. When student data revealed increased learning and student engagement, other teachers asked for their own Learning Carpets.
The Learning Carpet now equips teachers in public and private schools across Canada and the United States with tools that they can use to make learning both fun and impactful.
A Learning Legacy
When math teacher Lana Hansen first discovered The Learning Carpet at a conference, she was struck by the versatility. For over a decade, she put it to use in her classroom to help each student build a solid understanding of math and literacy concepts in a way that honored the thinking and skill level of each student.
She believed in the product so much that in 2017, Lana bought the company and brought it to the United States. She continues to expand the line of child-tested learning products and resources to include materials that build conceptual understanding based on the latest research, keeping student learning at the heart of The Learning Carpet.
“The versatility of these cards is amazing! I use these to help my younger intervention students with whole numbers and use them as decimal representations with my older students!”
