Inspark is a global team of educators and experts creating and sharing next-generation courses to revolutionize science education by teaching the subject as an exploration of the unknown, not just a mastery of the known. Inspark’s smart courseware includes “BioBeyond”(introductory biology course), “Habworlds”(general education science course), and “Inhabiting Earth”(course teaching chemistry principles through the interplay of matter and energy). Inspark’s “Infiniscope” feature presents virtual field trips and exploratory activities. The Inspark network is led by a partnership between the Center for Education Through Exploration (ETX) at Arizona State University and adaptive-learning developer Smart Sparrow.
For the first time, in 2018 the events of the winter Olympic Games will be broadcast and streamed live in all time zones by NBCOlympics.com. The videos will also be available on the NBC Sports app for Android and iOS phones.
Teachers can show their students that science, exploration, and conservation are alive outside of their textbooks by joining virtual field trips with National Geographic Explorers. Several times a month, students can participate in Explorer Classroom and connect with National Geographic explorers in Google Hangout events.
