ExploreLearning Gizmos - ExploreLearning

Winner In:
Best Virtual Lab
Gizmos are online simulations that excite curiosity and invite interaction. We’ve got more than 400 Gizmos in our library covering topics and concepts in math and science for U.S. grades -12. Gizmos help students dig deeper into subjects and really understand challenging concepts. Gizmos give everyone something to visualize, manipulate, and compare. That’s hundreds of opportunities where students don’t just act like scientists and mathematicians. They are. Gizmos help students to make connections and draw conclusions with an interactive design that supports manipulation of variables and “what-if” experimentation. Every Gizmo comes with extensive teaching resources that help make planning and teaching easy. Whole group, small group, or 1:1 lessons, Gizmos has you covered. Play, explore, and experience the “ah-ha” moment with Gizmos. • Discover concepts. Interactive design allows for extensive manipulation of variables and “what-if” experimentation. • Analyze data. Visualizations and graphing tools help capture and compare results from experiments. • Go deeper. In-depth activities create more moments to explore, discover and apply new concepts. Transform learning for ELL students—and students of all abilities ExploreLearning Gizmos are award-winning, interactive simulations that use research-based instructional strategies to bring key math and science concepts to life. With detailed graphics, vocabulary sheets, and customizable student lessons and activities, Gizmos can help address the challenges that English Language Learners and Special Education students face, and help all students reach their highest potential. Gizmos utilize research-proven best practices to support differentiated instruction: • Rich visuals and virtual models support student understanding • Allows for multiple modes of representation (discussion, pictures, graphs, writing, etc.) • Varied activity levels scaffold and differentiate learning • Provides opportunities for individual and guided practice • Connects concepts and vocabulary to real-world experiences We continue to add new Gizmos and Interactive STEM Cases to our library, update older Gizmos, and develop ways and resources to make it easier to teach and learn with Gizmos on a regular basis. In 2021, Gizmos were accessed 72 million times, while STEM Cases were accessed 2.4 million. We also added a Virtual Learning Community to our resources, allowing educators to collaborate with colleagues and ExploreLearning’s professional development team for best practices, tips, and fun activities in math and science.
