Students engage with inquiry by starting with scientific phenomena that they need to figure out, or problems they need to solve.
Students collect evidence and conduct experiments to figure out phenomena or solve a problem.
Students are empowered to build an argument from evidence, explaining science phenomena or arguing for the most effective solution to a problem.
Students play as Earth refugees on a new planet in the future. They must learn from our past in order to help the scientists at Tyto Academy and retain the delicate balance of their new planet.
Here’s a quick overview of how the Modules available in Tyto Online tie in with the Next Generation Science Standards.
Help Marysol in the Community Clinic, exploring the structure and function of cells and organisms.View Module
Explore genetic mysteries and solve food shortages. Even breed dragons to help increase their biodiversity.View Module
Help preserve endangered species, exploring ecosystems and learning to balance one from scratch.View Module
Predict weather events, solve coral bleaching, and master climate to bring your own planet to life.View Module
Don't settle for just showing videos to students; let them observe, experiment with, and run experiments to collect evidence and observe the phenomena.
Our teacher dashboard examines standards, provides supplemental materials, and lets teachers plan and assign content to align with class lessons.
We collect assessment data based on natural student gameplay: making flowcharts, building arguments, etc. We even highlight specific areas students are struggling to power teacher differentiation.
We have ongoing professional development available. We have an in-person session available, and we set up an ongoing online course and community to provide a stellar level of support.
"I used the Ecology module with my students during our online learning. It was great in that it challenged them to continuously problem solve over time."
"It was great to see that it gave the kids experiences more closely related to the real world instead of a simulation that magically works itself out. Kids collapsed their entire ecosystem section and then had to figure out what caused this and how to try again."
“It’s tragic you can't hear the happy chatter right now when they are all building and seeing it all come together!!"
"The conversations were spot on ie ‘Oh NO! The ferns are being invasive, I need to add something that will eat them and control them.’”
Tyto Online is one of the best out there to meet our needs with NGSS and educational technology for the grade levels it targets. The students are engaged, the teachers are empowered and the experience is wonderful. I wish more schools would know about Tyto as it would greatly benefit their learners. I love that it works with our Chromebooks and is easy for our teachers to get up and running and for our students to navigate.
