Site License

A site license for up to 2,000 students in your organization.

Online PD course for ongoing coaching as you implement Tyto -- and the NGSS!

What does it mean to be selected as a recipient and Showcase Site?

Implement Tyto Online

We'll be supporting you in using Tyto Online. See below for a suggested process for implementation.

Provide Data

As part of being a showcase site, we'll want data to understand the success of your usage. We can plan with your team what makes sense to collect.

Interviews & Media for Case Study

We'll want to feature you as a case study for the Showcase site and brag about how awesome you are, so we'll need to be able to do some interviews and use some media -- we understand students may not be possible, but at least with some teachers!
