General
How I Use It
I have not yet used this in a classroom. However, this resource will be a great addition to my lessons. The videos are great for career exploration. It also allows students to work together to problem-solve while thinking carefully and critically.
My Take
This website is a great tool to include in specific lessons in any STEM classroom. It can be beneficial for students to connect classwork to the real world, which gives them the answer to, “When are we going to use this?” Since they can connect their lessons to the real world, student engagement will increase. The videos provided allow students to collaborate and use critical thinking to solve problems. Although there are so many great features to this website, it does have a few areas in which it can improve. The way you search for videos can be more straightforward, and you currently can’t search by grade level – only by STEM category or standard. Overall, I think this is a great tool to improve individual lessons.
