Each month we publish blogs and newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in December.
1. Virtual Tour of a NASA Facility to See Where It All Happens
Students can take a 360-degree virtual tour of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) at California Institute of Technology. Through the virtual tour, students can explore key areas of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, including Mission Control, the Spacecraft Assembly facility, and the Visitor Center and Auditorium.
2. Art and Culture Stories in Augmented Reality
Developed by Boulevard, the BLVRD Features app for iOS brings users engrossing art and culture stories from around the world and throughout the ages, all in augmented reality (AR). Users place iconic paintings, prints, drawings, and more in their space.
3. Music Videos That Develop Foundational Math Topics
Developed by math specialists, cognitive psychologists, and hit songwriters, Muzology is an award-winning learning platform that uses music videos to make learning math enjoyable, engaging, and effective.
4. Race and Gender Equity in STEM Through Experiential Learning
Through innovative and experiential education programs for K–12 students from under-resourced communities, Learning Undefeated sparks interest in STEM careers, building the workforce that will drive the innovation economy and bridging school, community, health, and business.
5. Critical Decision Points in History Brought to Life
Think Like Churchill, an iOS app, invites users to face several scenarios from British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s life and weigh how to respond at key decision points. The scenarios range from personal (whether to pursue his passion for aviation in the early, dangerous days of flying) to international (how to save the French fleet from Nazi destruction).
