The sudden shift to distance and hybrid learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic has created a need to identify virtual and at-home science experiences that ensure students keep learning science in meaningful ways.
Anchored in the vision of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and A Framework for K-12 Science Education, a new NextGenScience resource highlights ways materials designed for in-person NGSS learning can be adapted for virtual or at-home settings while maintaining or enhancing best practices.
In this archived webinar, you will:
- See examples of effective strategies to adapt materials directly from the educators who conducted the analysis
- Learn from the developers about their process and design decisions
- Explore how to best support educators to be successful in this environment
