the right Blended learning mix

DSC_0754Once again yTeach team joined the leaders of international education at the IB Africa, Europe, Middle East Annual Conference. We have enjoyed every bit of the event from the enormous interest in our digital solutions for teaching to lovely weather and food. Presentations about blended learning and technology in the classroom confirmed the need of implementing technology in schools but at the same time reassured the need for passionate and open-minded teachers in the redesigned schools of the future.

According to Denise Perrault, IB Head of Online Learning, already 100% of students in secondary schools in Singapore use online learning. And using it becomes a standard across the world, edit1regardless of the development level of a country. Being used in over 50 countries including USA, Vietnam, the UK, New Zealand and Mauritius, yTeach is a powerful example of how technology can help reduce the impact of limited resources of school districts and classrooms in particular on the quality and relevance of the teaching material.

Watch yTeach new video cases to see how successfully it is used in daily teaching across the globe.

Elementary particles – resource of the week

resourceThis week’s free resource about the elementary particles can be a great introduction to the concept of particle-based world and to the activities of STFC – Large Hadron Collider.

This digital lesson will introduce atoms, nucleons and electrons, strange elementary particles, quarks, antiparticles and antimatter, annihilation and creation and standard model – a great range of topics presented in a varied interactive way.

Now, at the website of the LHC you can find a handy guide to the basic physics concepts – called LHC “Big Questions”. Among others they ask the following:

  1. Why do particles have mass?
  2. How did our universe come to be the way it is?
  3. What kind of Universe do we live in?
  4. What happened in the Big Bang?

Put these questions as tasks for your students and see what answers they can come up with based on their knowledge and the lesson’s input.

The importance of connecting theory and activity with practical knowledge and recent research outcomes is undisputed. Let us know how your students liked the digital lesson and how they coped with LHC Big Questions.
