Beyond Learning, How to Think!
By combining the measurement techniques of a hands-on lab with the technology of an online lab system, the scientists at Smart Science Education have created something amazing!
Each Smart Science lesson follows the 5E pedagogy, starting with an engaging video, a pre-quiz and some content reading, followed by a hypothesis selection. Then the student measures their own data from interactive videos, testing that hypothesis. They get tested for knowledge gain after the lab and write an online lab report to finish the lesson, writing in the content area. All lessons have lots of supporting information and historical references.
This patented technology puts the power of a hands-on lab online, on any Internet-connected device, (in over 100 languages if using the chrome browser). Using the science lab as the centerpiece of our powerful lessons stresses inquiry and discovery style learning, letting students design their solution to problems that revolve around each content standard in NGSS.
