For MDE: Subject Focus- Biology Resources for the Classroom

To support Biology curriculums Gale Science resources provide information on hundreds of today’s most significant science topics such as Cell Structure and Function, Organisms, Ecology, and so many more. By integrating authoritative, curriculum related reference content with interactive activities, multimedia materials including video, image, and audio files Gale resources from the Mississippi Department of Education pulls students into the subject matter and shows how scientific ideas relate to real world issues. View this webinar to explore the tools and features available to students, as well as the variety of Biology content available.

Duration: 30 Minutes
welcome to your Mississippi department of Ed. This is one of our subject Focused sessions, and today's session is focused on biology and the resources that are available for the classroom.

That you have from Gale and the Mississippi department of Ed.

My name is Tammi Burke and i'm your Gale, Trainer.

Any questions that you have throughout the session. please feel free to use that.

Q. and a box. The focus of today's session is on the resources and content that supplement the biology curriculum from secondary.

The goal is for you all to walk away with knowledge of the resources that you have available, and the content that you have to support instruction, and also the features that are available to meet the varying needs of your students.

So let's start with our Agenda I will start with an overview of gill interactive science and also gale in contact science resources.

So there's one interactive resource that applies to biology. and then there are 2 in context resources that apply to biology, one more than the other.

But I want to share them all with you today, since I have you for 30 min.

We're going to explore the subject. content. i'm going to share with you some search options that you have available, and also workflow tools that are available within the resources.

Any questions I encourage you to ask throughout the session, and then I will also stay on the line.

At the end of the session if there's any additional questions training materials.

I'll share with where you can go to locate all of your training materials, and then my contact information also you.

If we have any librarians or media specialists on the line, you have inside folks at Gale they're called customer success managers that are there for that one-on-one support.

So they're there to help you with any of the direct links you might need.

So the Urls for the resources, usage reports and those types of things.

So with that, let me start talking to you about access to the Mde. resources.

So if this is something you're wondering Oh, my goodness i'm not really sure how to access our resources.

You can go to the support site, and here's the link here. I will also share it in the chat, and then you should be able to find your school if you are not seeing your school.

There's a dropdown menu and let me share that with you.

In a moment, too, I'm just typing in the url so I can copy it and put it in the chat.

So I will place this in the chat there you go and what you'll find when you land on this site.

It will look like this. It is the our gale support page that we have our site we have for the Mississippi department event.

You'll be able to sign in with your school's name and once you click, proceed it'll take you to your product list with all of your direct urls.

Okay, and these are for each individual school. So you should be able to find your school on that list if you don't see it. Let me know in the in the Q.

And a and i'll make sure to connect you with the folks at Gale.

That we'll get you set up there the training materials you'll find also here on the support site.

This is a really good site to bookmark, because any upcoming training sessions oops.

Let me go back. Any upcoming training sessions will be listed here also. so you could easily go into training and access any recordings.

That's where all the recordings live so we have a library of webinar recordings and also the upcoming sessions.

All right. Let's talk about the gale science resources for your biology classrooms.

You're going to find Gill interactive science. So gill interactive science really brings learning to life.

It It has engaging interactive models that bring science to life, allowing students to better visualize and understand concepts in, not just biology, but chemistry, earth and space science.

And it also supports our high school curriculum You'll find the Ngss. standards linked out to every activity.

So you can find which you can even filter by standard to find activities.

Because these are interactive activities that are available within this database.

Not only that, but you'll find the 3 d models So if you have a 3D printer in your building, you can print off any of the 3D models that we have available here within this resource, and all of

this content is paired with our reference and periodical content to further that understanding.

So we not only have the interactive activities, but also the reference content related to that that activity or that slide within the activity Even you'll see that reference content change. Now, the resource we are going to spend time in today is

Gale in context, science, Gale In contact science any any resources in our in- context, family you're going to find, have great multimedia, but reference, and they're organized by topic pages that are very helpful

especially because they align to curriculum standards and units of study.

Subject focus, you're going to find those great topic pages We also have some awesome features and tools available in Gale In context.

Science. you're going to find trusted or I should say discover premium resources with trusted reference top periodical content.

So we have academic journals and magazines and newspapers multimedia.

As I mentioned videos, images audio. We have also interactive simulations available within the resource experiments and also statistics.

We find you'll find to support curriculum standards.

We have frequently studied topics in stem Our focus.

Today is going to be on biology. But this resource, just like interactive, your gale, interactive science cover all of the subject areas enhance teaching and learning.

You will find the ability with that we have integration with Google and Microsoft.

So your students or you all will be able to send information directly to Google or Microsoft or Google classroom.

If you're using it. you can print download email and there's also highlights and notes which is a great feature to annotate any text.

We also are integrated with learning management systems. So if you are using canvas or schoology, for example, you can have your gale resources set up within those platforms.

So, and that is where the customer success managers come into play because they can help with that process, because there is a little bit of setup on the backside, and they can make sure that your tech people have the information.

They need, and then your gale resources are integrated right into your learning management system.

Galen context, environmental studies. This is more of an honorable mention today because we do have some areas that I am going to take a look at, but it is focusing more on the the environmental studies.

So the environmental issues that that that we're finding it it's. It's looking at those topics of study like global change.

There is a section on energy and Earth systems you're also going to find one that we are going to go into today, and that is the living world which applies more to your curriculum.

So, but it is focused very much on the environment and you are going to find it just it.

Isn't in context resource so it's going to have those great topic pages.

It also has case studies and conferences so that's a little.

Those are content types that are readily available within this resource too. All right.

There's some tools I want to mention that I want you to keep in mind.

Get Link shared Google classroom or to teams and then send to our all options available within your gale resources to share content.

We. We have great tools to support accessibility, the translate tool font size, where you can increase or decrease display options.

We even have font choices, including open dyslexic and the listen feature, where you can listen to any text being read aloud.

So it really meets the needs of all of your students to encourage analysis like, say, claim evidence and reasoning.

We have highlights and notes. This promotes that deeper learning and the students have the ability to color code or annotate any text and to continue to develop those research.

Skills. We have topic pages as i've mentioned in your in context resources.

We also have topic finder, which is a visual interactive tool to find content.

And then all of your resources will have, or, I should say, all of your documents, images, videos, all have the citation attached.

But we also have the citation tool available alright. so with that let's go into the resource here, and we are.

It looks like I logged me out. Hold on, Let me log back in there we go.

Okay, So i'm gonna share my screen looks like I had a question.

My school is not listed. Okay, Thanks. Jerry I will reach out to the inside folks at Gale, and let them know and thank you for that information, so I will let them know and they can follow up and i'll provide them with

your contact information. so they can follow up sorry about that that's that's tends to be happening a little bit, especially as we're going into.

I happened a lot more this winter when we first launched, but it is still still happening a little bit.

I was actually on site at rankin in the school district there and doing some on-site sessions, and they theirs was a little mixed up, too.

So. it's we're getting it all worked out great, thank you, Jerry.

I appreciate that i'll be sure to pass that on to the folks internally here at Kale.

So, Gale, interactive science is the first one we are going to start with today.

I did. look at your your biology curriculum for secondary.

I pulled out that, and so all of my searches are going to be very focused on one thing.

We heard a lot from the Mississippi department of Ed.

Was that cells, anything related to cells is going to be very important because of the State testing.

So that is going to be a bit of our focus today.

When we're doing searches but I do want to show you all that you have available.

So we'll do some different searches within there too.

So when you are in gale interactive science, you have a few search options.

All of our resources always have a basic search bar at the top.

So this is going to search through these activities because Gaylor. Active science is full of interactive activities that you have available.

That's one route You can Take where You can just do a basic search on the right hand side.

There's the ability to browse activities. so you can go directly to the whole list of activities. filter them down.

However you want, and you can enter in that way. so let me do 2 of those.

So if I were to do a quick search on cells, I would see this list, and I have 18 different results available, based on my search term of cell.

But I still have that ability to filter by category.

Now, if I brought activities, it's going to take me to that same list where now I have to make a selection.

So i'm seeing all 219 search results.

So here I would have to. If I browse by activity I will have to fill her by category, or I can scroll through every single one of the 219 activities.

I want. One thing I want to point out over here, too, is the ability to filter by category.

You have the Ngs standards, so we have a 164.

So of the 219 activities available, 164 of them help hit these standards so I can filter by the standard. And it would take me to all 12 activities by just selecting.

Okay. And then the last way that you can find great content is using one of the subject categories.

So we are going to go into biology, and I can refine my search when I click into biology.

But before I do, I do want to just point out you have chemistry or science, human anatomy, and then all of the 3D printable models.

These models. you just download the file, and you if you have a 3D printer.

You can print them off and there's a very very long list of them that are available.

Animal cell is right here that I like to point out that's one of my favorite searches, too.

Okay, so that's all on that homepage one other thing I want to mention. If you are introducing your students to this resource for the first time, take a look at our scrolling topics here.

Welcome the gale. Interactive science is a great one to get started.

So these are introductory. wait! We have an introductory.

Where is it? at? There we go. So the interactive periodic table introduction.

Now I know this isn't chemistry but see if we ever have those introductory sessions here's one on the monarch Butterfly for biology you can I do encourage i'm especially the first

one for students to access to get to know the resource a little bit better.

So that's a great starting point for today we are going to go right into biology. and when I click into biology, and I don't filter by category which it did give me that option from the homepage it

selects all of the activities under the topic of biology.

So we have cells, botany, ecosystems, microbiology, paleontology, and zoology.

Now, if I just want cells, what I would want to do is remove everything and just select cells.

Okay, and then, that is going to take me to again, think it's an 18 there.

It's pretty small. It might be 13 search results now if you look at my results.

I have the title of the activity a brief summary and then I have all these tags below, so I have the tag of cells.

That's why i'm seeing these activity because they are tagged in.

These are hyperlinked out, but I also have my Ngss standards.

Hyperlinked here also. So if I wanted all of the and you can see a lot of them are the same standard here, because the topic is sell so not surprising it lands in the same Ngss standard, But if I wanted

all of my activities I have available for say this particular standard.

I can click on it, and it'll filter it down even further.

Alright. So you have a lot of options to filter down that content.

Let me go into animal cells and i'm gonna briefly run through this.

I just want to show you some of the tools and mention the information over here on the right hand side, and then we're going to go into our next resource.

So you do have these activities that are available. You can slide, tap, or swipe over on the right hand side.

We do have the arrows, or I can use the navigation at the bottom to move through this activity.

As I move through the activity, the information here within that activity changes, and also on the right hand side.

My reference. Content is changing, too. One thing I can do if I right click, right click on the image.

Here it is interactive, Remember, I can rotate so i'm right clicking with my mouse and rotating it around bottom hover.

You want to. If I left click on any of the parts, I can pull the and dissect the information, or this this image that I have this 3 D model. Also, Once I have removed those portions of my nucleus or well this is on

nucleus, but my animal cell I if I put my cursor over top.

It'll still tell me what part that is that i've just removed.

Okay, when I get towards the end of my activity I do have quiz questions.

Now these are just to test students knowledge there's no it's not a formal assessment.

There's no grading scale or you're not receiving any because they can select these as many times as they want to get the right answer.

For example, if I choose the wrong answer, I get that red screen.

If I choose the right answer, it moves me onto the next question.

Okay, you do have a couple of different views Oh, I have a Mac Mouse, and it's always have to move my cursor down below that activity.

You can zoom in and zoom out with that on your mouse.

That little roller ball. you can zoom in and zoom out.

Okay, please. look at this. Are these ipad friendly?

We are one to one ipads, Melissa.

I would highly suggest using them on a laptop. We are mobile, responsive.

I would test it out first. that's my suggestion We have come, you know, done all of our gale resources, our mobile responsive, but they activities.

I do love better on my on my laptop, so do test it out.

See if you like the way it is sometimes it's harder for students to manipulate that activity on the ipad.

You also have some different views. Where you have the theater view.

You also have full screen. So theater view is just going to bump your reference content here below.

Full screen is going to give you that full screen of the activity

What I also want to share with you is below in this summary, and let me go back to my regular screen.

Here in the summary is where what we saw remember when we when I first did that filter to sell

It's the same information. But you have the ability to share this content. Twitter linkedin pinterest email and to Google classroom.

So I can share this activity. And it would just be this activity to my Google classroom.

If I want a link to the activity to maybe pull into any of my resources.

Even my learning management system. Then I can grab. I just have to switch it to link to activity, Grab that link, paste it wherever I want my students to access this information.

If I want to link to a particular slide let's. say I want them to go right to the quiz slide, I can link to slide, and this resource is great to support your labs.

Maybe you Don't have the funding to have a lab and you need an interactive tool like this that's one of the many reasons why Mississippi department of Ed purchases resource.

You have that ability to provide this for your students it's also great for review, or to test their knowledge before I know I'm up in Michigan, and I know in in our labs here, especially with the dissection like the fetal

pig, for example, the students will have to. they they after when they take their tests.

Everything is just labeled with tags right on a little toothpick.

So they're labeled with the tag number one and the students have to identify that part.

This is a good review for them, because we do have the fetal pig, for example.

So we have so many different activities. I focused on cells. today.

I encourage you, and this came through Jerry you had mentioned.

Take a look at what we have available within these resources, explore see what you're teaching in your classroom, and how the resources can support them.

Okay. I also wanna I I do wanna get into Gale In context science, because I do want to share with you how that resource is linked back to the activities here.

So you have all of this content on the right hand side.

This is actually coming from Gale In context, science and then when you're in Gale In context, science.

And you've done a search you'll see a content type for interactive, for the interactive activities which will take and open this back up for your students.

So you've got that connection back and forth between those 2 resources.

Which is a great tool to have below. you can see here's the cell membrane.

I think you had asked for that jerry but here's the cell membrane, and you can see any activities that are related to the one that i'm on will be listed below so very easy for your students to access that

information, and also again access the resource information on the right hand side.

As I go through my content on the right my reference content will change alright.

So let's jump into our next resource Let me know if there's any questions on gale interactive science.

But we are going to go into Gale In contact science, and I do already have it opened here to make to to make the most use of our time.

So Gale In context science. I want to point out a few things and how this resource is different.

Of course, we have basic and advanced search at the top.

You have the ability to sign in with Google or sign in with Microsoft.

If I sign in with Google which i'm going to do now, I am set up as a teacher, so I can send information directly to my Google classroom.

It's very easy to do and I will show you that process So when i'm looking down on the page

Oh, one other item is, I can translate all of the navigational tools here on the page.

So in the contextual toolbar over here basic and advanced search, I have over 34 languages, and that's just the translation of the platform.

When I translate the document, i'm at over 40 languages there.

So for the platform tools it it is just over 34 languages on the homepage.

I want to point out a few items, topics of interest.

These are scrolling in these change every month. So we have 3 different this month, and they change every month.

I also want to point out these subject categories. So below each subject, category are topic pages.

We have the biology, topic, or subject, which has 244 topic pages.

Those topic. pages are curated collections of information. We look at curriculum standards.

We look at units of study, we look at top searches that are happening within this resource, and we curated all for you. so you can direct your students to just one topic.

Page. If you want to again supplementing your curriculum in the classroom, supplementing your text that you're using, Well, I know some classes don't have texts available within within your district so this is a great

resource, because all of the information is up to date it's constantly being updated throughout the day.

Every day.

I also want to point out curriculum standards.

So if you need to filter content by curriculum standards, this is very intuitive.

You click into curriculum standards, and then you can filter by either State or national under nationals, where you're going to find the Ngss standards, and we do have the standards that you need for your classrooms

there in Mississippi, so let's go into biology when I'm.

In the topic of biology, and I can go back to any of those topics at any time.

But i'm in biology that's our focus today. you can see all of the subjects we have are all the topic pages we have available.

If I want to go into let's say I want to go into Dna. here's our cells cellular respiration.

I mean the list is quite long. and and helps you again. support the standards that you are, and the subjects of study within your classroom.

We're going to go to dna i'm gonna show you a couple of different ones today.

When i'm on a topic page every single topic page has an image and an essay overview below, we have all of the different content types.

Remember I mentioned the interactive models that we were just in Galen interactive science.

They're linked out here, too, so because you have both resources.

You have that ability to go click into interactive models and it'll take you back in 2 gale interactive science to the activities that relate to the topic page that we're on.

So it's all that connection but you're going to find reference biographies.

There's great experiments here available. We also have all of our multimedia like videos, audios and images, academic journals, you looking for peer reviewed academic journals.

We have you covered. They are here also any websites that are safe, that at websites will be available and then related topics will be related.

Topic pages. Our reference content that's coming from a lot of our encyclopedias.

You're going to find that type of content under reference along with others.

Our featured content. This is hand selected information by our content editors.

So the folks at Gil that are hand selecting information they're going to put it in this featured content section.

So we only have 3 in this one that they feel is very important to this subject.

Our essay overviews, you do have the ability to change the lexile measure.

So this one is at a 1330. I can change it to a 1,200, which will take me also to a content level.

4 your content levels level 3 is middle school level 4 and i'm going to show you where you're going to see this information to level 4 is high school and level 5 is upper high school into undergrad level because a lot

of these resources are used at the college level. 2: Okay, few tools.

I want to point out tools to support accessibility and also our explore panel.

So since we're on this essay overview all of our documents, or I should say articles and documents will look like this.

You won't the this one happens they have some great text features, because this is published by Gale.

But we have this great explore panel, which is supplemental information.

So looking for. This is a great article i'm interested in as a student, but I need to. others.

I can use the more like this that I have available here in the explorer panel.

You'll see any related subjects or article contents that we have available.

And then, as I think, our tools to support accessibility, so now only do we have the ability to change the content level.

But we have the ability to translate the text into over 40 languages.

We are using Google translate, we have the ability to decrease or increase that font size.

We have the ability to change some display options. So if I need to change the background color, or I know the open dyslexic font, maybe I need to increase the line letter and word spacing.

I can do all of that under our display options and if I need to listen to the text.

I click that. Listen, button, and it'll read the text allowed to me Now, if I've translated and then click, listen.

It'll read it in the translated text, I will tell you This we have over 40 translated length, or 40 different texts that we can translate into with our listen feature.

We're at 23 and they are some of the most used So that's what you're going to find there under the listen Button.

Our ability to send to Google drive Microsoft one drive email download and print.

These are quicksand options, but also our contextual toolbar is is there and available for us.

So if i'm scrolling down the page I can decide. Okay.

Yep. I want to keep this I'm gonna send it to my Google drive or Microsoft One drive.

Okay, I can also download or print that information off. So if I click send you me just share with you.

I have Google drive one drive or email available and then what happens is when I send it.

Let's say, i'm using Google drive I send it to my Google drive a folder is created that is titled gale in context science.

And this document will land in that folder I can download or print. If I want to share a link to just a document, I can use the get link.

Tool. everything's in your toolbar so Don't worry if i'm going a little quick here for you just look at your toolbar and understand that you have those tools available.

Get. Link provides that persistent Url back to any spot within the resource

Alright. The last thing I want to share with you is highlights and notes, highlights and notes.

I should say second to the last thing. Highlights and notes provides the ability to highlight any text by clicking and dragging.

So just take your cursor, drag it over any chunk of text.

Choose your color. you can add notes and save if there's a term i'm struggling with like let's say resembles.

I do have that define button which takes me to a page in the Webster's dictionary, and my best practice is, if you are doing.

If your students are doing any type of highlighting, send the entire document to Google Microsoft email download print.

So you have the entire document that's been marked up if you are teaching your students about highlighting.

Maybe you're coming to us from a middle school and it's a mini lesson that you want to teach.

Send the document to your Google driver microsoft one drive and then share it from there.

So if you're using Google classroom for example you send the document, and then you would want to share it from your Google drive into Google classroom.

If you use the git link tool it's going to take you back to this document, but not that you've marked up it.

Doesn't know that this is your document. So send it and save it and then share it that way.

Okay, another section being built out, and that's your highlights and note section.

So if we look in our contextual toolbar citation is is very intuitive.

You're going to see the different formats we talked about sun to download print and get link.

And now we're going to talk about highlights and notes highlights and notes everything.

I've highlighted I now again, these I just highlighted 2 sections on this document, but I have the option to view all my highlights and notes.

So if I were in multiple documents highlighting a bunch of texts, I would see all of that here, and it's organized by the document that I was on.

So if I were in 5 different documents highlighting away, I would see all of those highlights and notes here.

The I do have the ability to edit my notes I also have the ability to change the format of the bibliography because it is attached, and I also have the ability to label my colors.

So if i'm maybe i'm working with a partner or i'm do you know I need this for claim evidence and reasoning, and I want to use certain colors for that I can label that so my when I send it

to my Google drive know. and so does my teacher if i'm sharing it with my teacher.

Because I can send just these highlights and notes to Google Microsoft email.

I can also download or print them off so all those options are available.

Let's go back one other thing I want to share with you in Gale In context, science, and this time i'm going to do a basic search, and I'm going to search for respiration

Okay, Now, why do I want to share with you? Here is we do have some simulations available.

So again. these are all your content types. Everything else you're seeing is the same.

But under respiration we happen to have some simulations available.

Let me share those with you. Those are different than your interactive activities that you have in Gale.

Interactive science. So i'm going to share this first one with you.

It. I think hits your curriculum standard. I wouldn't might be, was talking about respiration.

It was focusing more on plans, but it did say animals.

So I was hoping that this might hit one of your curriculum standards.

You are getting a little bit of information here, but as I scroll down, this is what I want to share with you.

So we have this attention box here, because it wants us to open up the activity.

So, because it shows so much better, and it's easier for students to interact with.

So let me open that activity, and I get information here in the first box on the on the left hand side, and then I have information about the activity on the right hand side.

So i'm gonna close both these up because I want to start my activity.

So I have to. what it tells me on the right hand side is I do have to adjust the ambient temperature first, so i'm gonna turn it kind of low here, and then click start on the left hand. side.

It gives me information to talk about, and I made it very cold for my goldfish, and you can see it.

The simulation is working, and then it'll add it to my graph.

If I want the next trial, maybe I wanna make it warmer and see what happens.

Click start I can see here what's happening my respiration rate my ambient temp, and then it'll add it to the graph, and I It gives you 3 different trials that you can run.

But you can reset the activity at the top at any time So we're gonna find those simulations available within galen contact.

Science. Alright, so the only other thing I wanted to share with you is, let me go back to respiration.

Let's say i'm in reference i'm clicking into a content type.

You have the ability to filter down your results so depending on where i'm at like.

If i'm in newspapers, i'm going to see a category here with newspaper sections, so this is I'm.

On reference, so I have public. Most of them are almost the same.

It's just you might have additional like I said with news publication date.

I can filter by. This is fantastic, especially for news.

A magazine, academic journals by subject document type, and I can search for and multi-select those document types.

I have publication title so if there's certain titles that you're looking for, that you utilize or like, I said, periodical content.

You're going to find here, too. Be sure to check out the publication titles Lexile Measure.

So if you are using, especially at the middle school level, you want to multi-select some lexile measures.

You can content level. So if I just wanted maybe all of the level three's, which is middle school, you can see the lexile measure, it's related to. maybe I just want level 3 zoom fours i'm gonna apply that and

I also last thing is, I have the ability to search within.

I filter down this content, but it filters down everything.

So if you Notice it's 54 i'm at 54 reference articles, 5 audio files, so it does filter down everything.

If I needed to filter down. if my students were focusing more on that reading content, right?

Because it does filter videos. it filters images simulation.

So it does filter everything at once. But I can use that git link and share this filtered content for my students. So maybe I am.

I need this for my differentiating instruction. I can do that.

I can provide this for my students. Maybe I just want all of the level 3 content.

I can do that and use that. Get link tool

Alright. So that is our session. the only thing I wanted to share with you.

Is that interactive tool you're gonna find it under advanced search and that's topic.

Finder topic finder is a visual representation of your of your search results, and you're gonna find this in galen contact, science and Gale In context environmental studies i'm searching for greenhouse gases it

gives me. Either I have the the 2 visualization options, tiles or wheel.

I am in tiles, and I can click into. Maybe I want air pollution control.

As I continue to click impacts it's filters down those results for me like I said it's interactive, and they're listed here on the right hand side, and I can quickly jump into any of these documents could be an

image video. It could be anything reference document. It takes all of our content and puts it into this visual format for your students.

And this is looking at the keywords. The top hits for that subject of greenhouse gases.

You'll also find topic finder if I go back to respiration.

Yeah, I don't know if you noticed here when I clicked into reference.

I have focused on my filter your results section, but you also will find topic finder here. so I can pull in just these results from this topic page into topic finder.

If i'd like to so I don't have to kick off my search.

If I want that visual piece, it's there too, so we have it in both places available.
