I have spent the last 4 days learning so much about new technologies and best practices in education that my brain is on complete overload. I was also on the hunt for innovative products that I could share with you. Today I learned that a brand new interactive science game for grades 3-5 called The League of Scientists which looks like a great way to work independently or with multiple players on interactive games that use science content provided by ISTE.
Here’s additional information about The League of Scientists from the press release:
ISTE Provides Curriculum for Tabula Digita’s New Interactive Science Game Soft Launch at 30th Anniversary NECC
The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE®), education game-maker Tabula Digita, and the Monsanto Education Fund partnered last year to develop an interactive science game for grades three through five. Called the “League of Scientists,” the game was soft-launched with game maker Tabula Digita’s at ISTE’s 30th annual National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) on July 1.
“We know that students are engaged by interactive games and that teachers are excited about using them to supplement learning inside and outside the classroom,” said Don Knezek, ISTE CEO. “That’s why we were pleased to be part of this project – it’s an opportunity to be part of changing the way we do education and science and to reach a group of students we’re losing.”
The League of Scientists is free. It allows students to compete against each other in a series of multi-player games, constructed around a standards-based science curriculum. The curriculum was developed by ISTE and covers grade-appropriate life science, earth and space science, or physical science concepts.
The product was introduced to a room full of interested educators as well as more than 100 virtual followers on ISTE Connects who were able to contribute questions throughout the session.
No promotional consideration was paid for this post. This press release was sent to me by NECC and ISTE as a member of the media.
