Teachers and administrators who have yet to hear about ExploreLearning.com should take a few minutes to check it out. They offer the educator/parent/student interactive materials to supplement a child’s education. ExploreLearning calls their modules “Gizmos,” small Macromedia Flash-based computer simulations to help enhance math and science learning. Though these are correlated to state and national requirements for Grades 6-12, I found useful math Gizmos for my fourth grader in what they had for free on the site.
That’s right – there is a fee for unrestricted use of the 380 Gizmos plus teacher resources. I haven’t discerned how much that is, but it seems as though it would be calculated based upon your usage needs. Check it out – watch the demo movies on their homepage and browse some of the Gizmos. Educators will likely want to explore this option further in their own classrooms.
