What is MySciLife?
MySciLife® is an online social learning environment where students create an identity as a science concept, such as an organism, animal. object or force: What would it be like to live life as a cell? Students develop this persona and maintain the role of this science concept via status updates, interactions and tools familiar to today’s youth—safely within the MySciLife® community. MySciLife® is a personal, dynamic science learning experience, a place for science-focused interaction, and a tool for teachers to assess understanding as students “live” and learn science, created by TeachersFirst.com.
Our MySciLife® Pilot Teacher Ambassadors had great success using MySciLife® learning community to deliver their science curriculum in Grades 6-9. Student interest, motivation and learning was shown to improve. Full results will be posted soon on our website. We would like to expand our research project to a total of thirty science teachers from across the country, next year. You will be contracted and compensated for your time.
The entire project is FREE for schools, teachers and students participating and will remain free. We hope to bring this project to life to provide fun and inter-active learning to middle school students.
