    Vendor Spotlight: TYTO Online - Where Students "Do" Science

    Tyto Online helps empower students as they experience what it's like to "do" science, by setting up authentic, meaningful problems in a video game. For example, students work with a botanist to solve a food shortage while learning about genetics, or they investigate why a seal is sick to uncover a microplastics problem that must be addressed. Tyto Online is designed for middle school with the new three-dimensional science standards, and are designed with strategies to engage marginalized students in STEM.

    Differentiation Through Choice

    According to Dr. Catlin Tucker, "student agency, or a students' ability to make key decisions about their learning experience, is an essential aspect of blended learning.” Choice boards and "playlists” are simply digital documents that outline specific resources and tasks, but they are also strategies for blended learning when we combine active, engaged learning online with active, engaged learning offline. This session will unpack some essentials of creating choice boards and playlists richly enhanced by digital technology tools. PD Your Way NOTE: This course is 100% online and will take approximately 3 hours to complete. This course begins on July 18th, and participants have until July 29th to complete all required assignments and activities to receive CTLE credit.

    Gizmos from Explore Learning (Math and Science)

    Gizmos are online simulations for math and science topics, grades 3-12. When students engage with simulations, they use their spatial reasoning to learn fundamental concepts, and are encouraged to explore and experiment and build conceptual understanding. Gizmos lend themselves to group work, independent work, and whole class instruction. This session will provide a fresh look at the Gizmos library of content and correlations to textbooks and standards. We'll also brainstorm ways to effectively incorporate Gizmos into daily classroom routines.
