There are interactive science kits that boost hands-on education. And, then there are kits designed to totally invigorate active learning by providing students with an accessible, fun, and enrichment-filled learning adventure. The Hydropower Kit from Thames & Kosmos falls under the latter. Using this kit, educators have the potential to transform their classrooms into experimental labs and give their students the chance to investigate, innovate, and excel.

If there are two students in a classroom and one is following along, trying to stay awake while a classmate reads a passage from a textbook and the other one is living the concepts the first one is reading about, which one do you think is more engaged? No, it’s not a trick question. The answer is Student 2 and for good reason. This student is engaged in active learning rather than observing from the outside in passive learning. Active learning generates revamped student engagement, builds student interest, and facilitates the mastery of hands-on skills in ways that are much more efficient and much more beneficial for students in the long run.

As robotics technology continues to advance, we are discovering more and more the potential of robotic companions for people of all ages. Robotic pets have always been a dream of kids everywhere – imagine having a dog who could not only do tricks and play fetch, but that kids could also program and play with online! We’ve come a long way from the days of the first robot toys for kids, and now we are able to use incredible technology to simulate behaviors very close to the ones displayed by our actual furry friends.
Virtual reality is coming. And, it’s coming quicker than most of us realize. Even in education, virtual reality is finding its way into the classroom and offering students the chance to explore learning with a technology that’s unlike anything else. With its immersive capabilities and incredibly vivid graphics, VR is poised to disrupt education in a way that’s both monumental and equally beneficial to students. Here are five VR viewers teachers can snag to keep up with the times.

If you’re a follower of these weekly blog posts, you may remember me mentioning that I studied video game design in college. I also taught game design for a bunch of years as an instructor at a couple of summer camps in the Boston area, and I am a firm believer in the educational potential of...
Computer Science, as we know, has come a long way especially in the last few years and especially in K-12 education. What was once thought of as a complex endeavor suitable for only advanced students and the smartest minds has undergone a shift and is now inclusive to everyone. Students as young as first or second grade are able to experience what it’s like to think like a computer scientist thanks to technology tools that replicate the process in a way that’s introductory and age appropriate. Today, Computer Science is a necessity and, in schools, its prevalence is finally starting to reflect that.
