How I Use It
I assign Gizmo interactives to reinforce math and science concepts taught in the classroom. Students are able to explore for themselves variables in simulations. I have used the assessments as well to gauge student understanding. This summer we plan to assign a "Summer Gizmo List" of activities to emphasize skills already learned in the completed grade level.
We have recently renewed our school's Gizmo subscription. The student led nature of the interactives make them useful in a variety of classroom settings. My only complaint is that I find the way accounts are organized to be less than ideal for elementary students. (Students create accounts and then join a teacher class using a class code.) Overall, it is a helpful classroom resource.
