YourLabs Hosts Teacher Workshops with the University of Arizona

This week we had the wonderful opportunity of hosting a STEM workshop with the University of Arizona. Over 40 teachers from around Arizona joined us to discuss using technology in the classroom to strengthen student learning. A number of wonderful resources were discussed, some of them are highlighted below:

Ted Ed: Lessons Worth Sharing
Collections of short, educational videos and lesson plans on hundreds of topics.

PhET™ project at the University of Colorado
This site provides fun, interactive, research-based simulations of physical phenomena.

High-interest articles are available in 5 different reading levels for students in grades 3-12.

YourLab’s Knowledge Evaluation System
And of course we got to share YourLab’s Knowledge Evaluation System (KES)! The teachers had an opportunity to create classes and work with colleagues to develop questions to assess student learning.

Still haven’t tried the Knowledge Evaluation System? Give us a try… it’s free!

We had a great time meeting some of the wonderful teachers around Arizona… thank you to all who attended and helped make these workshops a success!

YourLabs at FETC 2014

The YourLabs team had the pleasure of attending the Florida Educational Technology Conference (FETC) 2014.  FETC is one of the largest educational conferences in the nation and we met over 400 enthusiastic and bright educators from all over the world.  

The National Science Foundation sponsored our booth in the Incubator Pavilion at the 3 day event.  We also gave a talk at one of the concurrent sessions about our learning analytics platform called the Knowledge Evaluation System.

We had a blast at FETC and can’t wait for next time!
