Hands-On Learning in Secondary Science: It’s a Game-Changer!
Are you looking to “change the game” in your teaching?
Are you looking to “change the game” in your teaching? Research suggests that by involving students in a total learning experience (i.e. learning by doing, hands-on), their ability to think critically is significantly enhanced. In this webinar you will learn innovative ways to engage your students and boost their understanding of key life science concepts using hands-on learning experiences! We will discuss cutting-edge Augmented Reality resources, game-based modeling strategies, and how to incorporate cooperation and competition to differentiate for ALL students.
