Edusmart Science builds students' concept knowledge using multiple real world examples and models, vivid graphics, concise narrated text, and strategically placed interactive opportunities to practice acquired knowledge.

Edusmart Science enhances effective questioning, the activation of prior knowledge, and ongoing assessment through built-in pauses, allowing student-learning to drive the pace of instruction.

Features

  • Rich, detailed animation and concise narrated text enable students to construct their own understanding of concepts for maximum retention.
