Science Bits is a repository of multimedia science lessons that promotes the change from an educational model reliant on the transmission of facts from teacher to learner to a constructivist one based on inquiry, critical thinking, discovery and learning-by-doing. To do so, Science Bits empowers teachers by providing science lessons that adhere to this constructivist model, and promotes real understanding by engaging students in science learning.
All Science Bits lessons include dozens of multimedia and interactive resources (videos, animations, simulators, 3D models), allowing one to teach and/or learn science by doing science. In addition, Science Bits’ user-friendly Intranet allows teachers to create groups of students, assign them bundles of content, schedule exams, monitor student progress, and grade open-ended questions.
