Tyto Online is built for the NGSS, with built-in best practices like students making sense of anchoring phenomena, learning through storylines, and engaging in three-dimensional learning. Students are participating in inquiry and solving authentic problems in every activity.

Our Pedagogy

We're supported by research.

Research is the base of everything we do: from our pedagogical approach to how we iterate on our product’s design.

  • Two pilot studies showed effectiveness
    Including a 12% increase in science and engineering skills during a study for our NSF pilot.
  • Based on Game-Based Learning Research
    We’ve incorporated what works for game-based best practices, like simulations and immersive role-playing.
  • Science Learning Research
    Our pedagogical approach also pulls from science best practices, using phenomena, problem-based learning, and direct engagement in practices.

Equally engage your underrepresented students

Our approach is based on key research about strategies that sustain the STEM interest of girls and underrepresented minorities.

  • Shows the social impact of STEM careers by solving authentic problems like solving food shortages.
  • Displaces stereotypes by showing the creative & collaborative nature of science careers; and includes diverse characters in those roles.
  • Provides varied ways to represent knowledge instead of all being language-heavy.

Effective Professional Development

We don't believe in "one and done" PD. Your teachers need more support between new games and new standards. So we set up an ongoing online course and community to provide a stellar level of support.
