Level up Your Three-Dimensional (NGSS) Instruction with Tyto Online

Video games can actually help level up your students’ NGSS learning: having students use science and engineering practices as they directly engage with phenomena as part of storylines. In this session, we’ll walk through model activities from Tyto Online where students do things like build an ecosystem from scratch or learn about climate change from an anchoring phenomenon of coral bleaching. We’ll reflect on how games can be used to support students’ authentic engagement in science problems and phenomena. You’ll also be given concrete advice about how games can be used as part of classroom instruction, alongside your core curriculum, and how they can help level up your remote three-dimensional instruction, even in a remote or hybrid setting, with empowering student experiences.
