As a Science Teacher and Educational Consultant, I am always looking for new tools that make it easier for teachers to provide effective and engaging lessons and learning environments for their students. Why Science, accomplishes that, and it is easy to use.
Within a 2 hour professional development session, a teacher will be able to use the Why Science platform to teach lessons. Teachers will have learned numerous ways to engage students – through interactive animated characters and a framework that facilitates students’ continual learning. It also saves teachers’ time and enables them to monitor students’ ongoing progress.
The WhyScience platform helps create courses that satisfy all requirements of the National Standards for Quality for online courses (https://www.nsqol.org/the-standards/quality-online-courses/). These standards include establishing a clear course structure, using instructional design, being user friendly and evaluating student mastery and course effectiveness. 3D learning for NGSS occurs naturally when you create courses with the platform.
A teacher will then have free tools to be able to gain further, self-paced professional development. Click here to learn more about how Why Science can help you.
