Filling the Void: Options for Authentic Investigations in an Online or Hybrid Learning Environment

WEBINAR (61 minutes) recorded August 25, 2020


With the start of a new school year unlike any other, chemistry teachers will at some point need to decide the role of laboratory investigation within their new learning environment. Whether it’s hybrid or distance learning, our students still deserve opportunities to engage in the science practices that are at the core of quality science instruction. In this webinar, we will be focusing on two available options that have arguably the greatest potential for offering a legitimate approach toward authentic investigations in a digital environment—Pivot Interactives and ADI Online. Understanding what each platform has to offer in relation to your own needs will help your decision-making process and hopefully provide a sense of certainty within these uncertain times.
