Interactive Applications stimulate critical thinking and reinforce key concepts, and students receive immediate feedback and can track their progress in their own report. Students will be asked to “click and drag” specific choices to make decisions, categorize, or put in a time sequence, and then are asked multiple-choice questions to confirm understanding of the key concepts of the activity.
Take a virtual field trip with Google Earth! Google Earth is an online application that uses satellite imagery to allow the user to zoom across the globe in a realistic, virtual environment. Connect also includes Interactive Base Map exercises for each chapter.
When learning tools are interactive, content is more approachable and engagement is deeper. Connect includes an Integrated eBook that builds student comprehension through animation, audio and video. As part of its rich media format, students can insert and review notes, highlight text, conduct searches for specific content and interact with high-impact images.
