Activate Learning Partners with OpenSciEd to provide an Interactive Digital Edition & Material Kits

GREENWICH, Conn. - Aug. 6, 2021 - PRLog -- Activate Learning has partnered with OpenSciEd to deliver OpenSciEd middle school science as an interactive digital edition on the Activate Learning Digital Platform. In addition, Activate Learning will make available for purchase OpenSciEd science material kits for middle school units.

OpenSciEd was created to address the ongoing need for materials designed for the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and provide students with a curriculum where they learn and value science. Students need opportunities to experience the work of science by performing as scientists and engineers. OpenSciEd's instructional model offers all students the opportunity to bring their observations and questions to the learning at hand. The quality of OpenSciEd materials has been recognized by NextGenScience at WestEd who have evaluated all OpenSciEd released units using the EQuIP rubric and given them a quality rating.

With the Activate Learning Digital Platform, students will benefit from an interactive, engaging online experience when using the OpenSciEd curriculum. Students can record their observations and reasoning and receive feedback from teachers. Students benefit from modeling supports like drawing tools and stamps, as well as writing supports with sentence starters and reading supports through recorded audio, highlighting and annotations. Teachers have everything they need to plan, teach, assign, and assess lessons in a platform that is integrated with leading Learning Management Systems.

"Our interactive digital edition provides students and teachers with exactly what they need to succeed with OpenSciEd. When combined with our successful history of science kit fulfillment, we believe districts can be confident in adopting OpenSciEd when backed by a leading STEM publisher like Activate Learning."
