Duration: 30 Minutes
[00:00:05.150]
Again, thank you everyone for being here

[00:00:07.448]
today. We're talking about the top 10

[00:00:09.460]
tips and tricks within Gale

[00:00:11.477]
Interactive Science. My name

[00:00:13.519]
is Amber Winters and I am your training consultant

[00:00:15.750]
for the day,

[00:00:17.219]
a quick agenda here for everyone. So first I want

[00:00:19.457]
to very briefly mention what Gale Interactive

[00:00:21.870]
Science is. So if you're new to the

[00:00:23.928]
resource, you get just a little background before we

[00:00:26.000]
get rolling. But of course, we're going to spend

[00:00:28.158]
the majority of the time actually talking about

[00:00:30.280]
the tips and tricks that are available for you

[00:00:32.639]
as we're going through those tips, we're also

[00:00:34.667]
going to jump into the resource so you can kind

[00:00:36.740]
of see them in action.

[00:00:38.880]
And then by the end of the session, we will have time

[00:00:41.380]
for any questions that I wasn't able to answer

[00:00:43.478]
as we move along. And I do have some wrap

[00:00:45.679]
up contact information for you as well that

[00:00:47.779]
you'll get at the very end. So let's go

[00:00:49.840]
ahead and dive in

[00:00:52.139]
first at the very very base level

[00:00:54.219]
when we're talking about Gale Interactive Science.

[00:00:56.520]
This is a resource that provides

[00:00:58.618]
interactive models for secondary level students.

[00:01:01.179]
That is the very base if that's

[00:01:03.240]
all you know about the resource. And that's gonna be the one

[00:01:05.438]
thing. the models are focused

[00:01:07.599]
in core science, subjects like biograph,

[00:01:09.680]
biology and chemistry, earth science,

[00:01:11.870]
science, as well as human anatomy. So we're

[00:01:13.948]
really focused at the high school level content.

[00:01:16.370]
Of course, you'll see the majority

[00:01:18.430]
of this content is going to be just for your high

[00:01:20.527]
school leveled studentss. Um

[00:01:22.680]
Some individuals use this at the middle school

[00:01:24.930]
level but it is a higher leveled resource.

[00:01:27.027]
So generally we recommend it for high school level

[00:01:29.307]
students and above,

[00:01:33.829]
but let's jump right into our top 10

[00:01:35.900]
here. So my first top

[00:01:38.019]
10

[00:01:38.908]
tool feature tip is

[00:01:41.087]
going to be the 3D principal

[00:01:43.180]
models. So these are free on

[00:01:45.479]
demand files available

[00:01:47.769]
to S T L files which

[00:01:49.930]
work in any 3D printer. So if

[00:01:51.948]
you're in the library and you have access to a 3D

[00:01:54.049]
printer, you can find these right on the home

[00:01:56.250]
page of Gale Interactive Science

[00:01:58.908]
and just like our general activities

[00:02:00.930]
going to include topics within

[00:02:03.218]
biology and chemistry, earth science

[00:02:05.430]
and anatomy.

[00:02:07.468]
And my tip here is that this is going

[00:02:09.550]
to be perfect to replace those expensive

[00:02:11.830]
scientific models for your staff. So if

[00:02:14.110]
you're trying to get some buy in from your science department

[00:02:16.587]
and maybe they're not quite in the resource

[00:02:18.669]
just yet print out a couple of these

[00:02:20.878]
models and hand them out, of course,

[00:02:22.968]
they're going to be a lot cheaper than those scientific

[00:02:25.460]
models you have to buy from the science supply

[00:02:27.568]
store. Generally those are, are

[00:02:29.735]
pretty substantially priced. You'll

[00:02:32.024]
have access to these. Your teachers will be able to

[00:02:34.085]
even have a couple in their classroom if they want

[00:02:36.235]
to. You'll see, pull forward here a little virus.

[00:02:38.944]
If they want to have a couple versions of this

[00:02:41.063]
virus for their classroom, it's much easier

[00:02:43.115]
to get it from you than it would be to order

[00:02:45.444]
from a science supply

[00:02:47.645]
company.

[00:02:48.860]
So let's take a look at this where you can find this,

[00:02:51.250]
how it's going to look when you click into them here.

[00:02:53.968]
Got a couple of windows open. There we go.

[00:02:56.098]
So this is the home page of Gale Interactive

[00:02:58.520]
Science. If you haven't been here before,

[00:03:00.658]
I'm going to scroll down today,

[00:03:02.699]
but we'll go over the whole, the whole

[00:03:05.038]
home page. Sorry, I'm a little tongue

[00:03:07.199]
tied. But we are going to jump right into

[00:03:09.399]
the 3D Principle models which are found here

[00:03:11.557]
on the home page and you won't find these

[00:03:13.777]
if you just run a standard search. So if you're

[00:03:15.867]
going up here and searching through activities

[00:03:18.587]
that does not search through the 3D Principle

[00:03:20.837]
models, those are pulled out in their own separate

[00:03:22.938]
little bucket just because we won't, don't

[00:03:25.139]
want students to click into those thinking they're going

[00:03:27.210]
to be able to click through an activity and

[00:03:29.258]
all they get is a file that they can't even

[00:03:31.329]
use. So we have pulled them out separately

[00:03:33.478]
here so I can select browse S T L

[00:03:35.639]
files.

[00:03:38.337]
There we go.

[00:03:39.429]
And you'll see, we have all of these listed here with

[00:03:41.598]
nice little previews of what you're going to get.

[00:03:43.639]
So again, as I mentioned, you'll see some chemistry here,

[00:03:46.277]
some different biology, like a full

[00:03:48.319]
beluga whale or a skull

[00:03:50.668]
scrolling down here. You'll see we have different

[00:03:52.837]
bones available

[00:03:55.087]
and we also have microscopic things

[00:03:57.149]
here. Again, that's a little

[00:03:59.527]
virus I have here. You'll see, we also

[00:04:01.688]
have one here.

[00:04:03.139]
So these are all readily available for you whenever

[00:04:05.449]
you want them, all you need to do is download

[00:04:07.837]
the file.

[00:04:10.568]
It does come out in a zip folder

[00:04:12.628]
just because there's um, a good amount of stuff

[00:04:14.740]
here. So you'll see, you can pull it forward

[00:04:17.850]
and you have your file right here. It's going to open

[00:04:19.889]
up for you.

[00:04:22.970]
You may have a different software that you're using

[00:04:25.250]
to deal with 3D models, but it'll

[00:04:27.519]
pull forward whatever software you're using. You'll

[00:04:29.540]
see it's ready to go

[00:04:30.959]
and then you'll just print it out and you'll have it on hand

[00:04:33.088]
for any teachers who need it or just, you

[00:04:35.189]
know, to decorate your library. If you find some

[00:04:37.278]
interesting things you would look, you think would look in

[00:04:39.338]
your library, these are ready to go for you.

[00:04:41.439]
And of course, of course, students love to

[00:04:43.519]
be able to take a look at these models. So again,

[00:04:46.079]
this is my number 10 tip

[00:04:48.298]
is use these 3d models to

[00:04:50.409]
get sign to your interest.

[00:04:52.699]
Again, they're found right here on this home page.

[00:04:57.487]
And again, as I mentioned, free to use and always

[00:04:59.709]
avail available for you on demand.

[00:05:03.699]
So our number nine tip

[00:05:05.750]
is going to be taking a look at the supporting

[00:05:08.250]
reference content that's available

[00:05:10.329]
attached to all of our activities.

[00:05:12.778]
So in addition to having the activities that are walking

[00:05:15.100]
students through whatever they're learning about,

[00:05:17.209]
you'll see in my screenshot here, it's an aquifer.

[00:05:19.699]
We include articles that are going to provide

[00:05:22.129]
deeper information about that

[00:05:24.209]
specific topic and the articles

[00:05:26.329]
changed to stay relevant with each

[00:05:28.619]
step of the activity. So as I were

[00:05:30.720]
to move forward through my activity, it would

[00:05:32.730]
change along with me.

[00:05:34.528]
And in addition to just having the text,

[00:05:36.699]
what's great is we also have a translation

[00:05:38.737]
translation feature on these articles

[00:05:41.199]
as well as the read speaker and some different

[00:05:43.409]
text manipulation tools. So we're trying

[00:05:45.487]
to make this reference content just

[00:05:47.778]
as accessible as the actual activity itself.

[00:05:50.129]
You'll find it here attach to the activity

[00:05:52.588]
on this right hand side.

[00:05:54.838]
Let's go ahead and jump back and take a look at this.

[00:05:57.670]
So today I'm just going to use my

[00:05:59.778]
little carousel up tap here and

[00:06:01.850]
I want to explore my volcano activity.

[00:06:04.410]
I don't know if you all enjoy a good volcano, but I certainly

[00:06:06.559]
do. So I'm going to hit discover now

[00:06:08.730]
so we can take a look at what this reference content

[00:06:10.790]
looks like. So as my activity is

[00:06:12.829]
loading here, you'll see this is the reference

[00:06:14.899]
content we have pulled forward here. So

[00:06:16.910]
this is going to give us kind of a background about

[00:06:19.259]
what we're going to be learning. Some are longer than

[00:06:21.298]
others, as I'm sure you could imagine this one's

[00:06:23.369]
pretty substantial,

[00:06:26.309]
but we have this here. So students can kind of read

[00:06:28.389]
through this if they're getting a little bit stuck on the activity.

[00:06:31.410]
But you'll see as I start to click through this activity,

[00:06:34.639]
now, my material has changed. So now we're

[00:06:36.737]
taking a look at igneous rocks as

[00:06:38.759]
opposed to just volcanoes.

[00:06:41.608]
If I move forward a little bit more here, we start

[00:06:43.670]
talking about plates. You'll now see, I have information

[00:06:46.369]
on plate tectonics here.

[00:06:48.939]
So this is a great review for your students

[00:06:51.220]
and your students can actually save this content

[00:06:53.509]
specifically. So if they just need that additional

[00:06:55.737]
support,

[00:06:56.677]
you see, we have the option to send this over

[00:06:58.709]
to Google or Onedrive, they can email it

[00:07:00.809]
to themselves or they can download and print this.

[00:07:03.160]
So this is good for your students. If they're trying to

[00:07:05.177]
pull content. If they won't have

[00:07:07.420]
access to the activity right now, they just want something

[00:07:09.987]
physical they can take with them. It's

[00:07:12.160]
also great for teachers. If they find a bit of content

[00:07:14.500]
that they think is really beneficial, they

[00:07:16.509]
can forward that along to students. So

[00:07:18.528]
this is just another layer within this resource

[00:07:21.298]
that's really going to help students fully

[00:07:23.838]
grasp whatever they're learning.

[00:07:28.858]
And I don't see any questions pop up. I will remind

[00:07:30.927]
everyone the Q and A is open. So

[00:07:32.980]
even though I'm moving through these kind of quickly to

[00:07:35.040]
make sure we get through all of our 10, if

[00:07:37.177]
you do have a question, type it in there, and I'll be able

[00:07:39.278]
to pause and answer that.

[00:07:42.019]
So let's take a look at number eight here. Number

[00:07:44.338]
eight is a big one. Number eight is going to be all

[00:07:46.379]
of the great filters we have available

[00:07:48.737]
and these filters are going to be beneficial

[00:07:50.778]
for students as well as teachers. So

[00:07:52.838]
they'll find really precise information

[00:07:55.139]
that they need and they can filter

[00:07:57.379]
by subject by category or

[00:07:59.500]
by standards, we'll talk about standards a

[00:08:01.519]
little bit later, but they can filter by any

[00:08:03.649]
of those options.

[00:08:05.358]
And our filtering goes a lot for multi selection.

[00:08:07.959]
So if you have individuals coming in, you'll

[00:08:10.040]
see a pulled forward biology as a category

[00:08:12.608]
here. And maybe they're interested in zoology

[00:08:15.040]
and paleontology, but not so much

[00:08:17.379]
microbiology. They can

[00:08:19.420]
narrow it down to those two options and they'll just be pulled

[00:08:21.660]
to that specific content.

[00:08:23.720]
And once they are pulled to a specific

[00:08:26.608]
list of resources based

[00:08:28.829]
on their filter options, they can choose

[00:08:31.177]
different filters right on that list, kind

[00:08:33.269]
of that search results list as well.

[00:08:37.278]
You'll see that in my screenshot here. And when I do

[00:08:39.557]
have my filter set, I can narrow it

[00:08:41.599]
down even further on that left hand side

[00:08:45.869]
and it's nice and simple to get there. So let's

[00:08:47.969]
jump back to the home page any time I

[00:08:49.979]
hit this scale Interactive Science banner

[00:08:52.168]
up top here, it's going to pull me forward to the home page.

[00:08:58.528]
Scroll down here and our filtering

[00:09:00.570]
begins right here at this point. So

[00:09:02.690]
you'll see here, I can refine my category on

[00:09:04.700]
any of these.

[00:09:05.960]
So if I do want to stick with biology, let's say,

[00:09:08.750]
and maybe take a look at microbiology,

[00:09:11.038]
I can filter that here and I'll just let go

[00:09:13.307]
and then I'm pulled forward to everything.

[00:09:15.769]
That's been tagged to microbiology

[00:09:18.057]
here and I will point

[00:09:20.080]
out any tags you choose are

[00:09:22.379]
labeled down here underneath

[00:09:24.599]
the entries. So you'll see each of these

[00:09:26.629]
are tagged to microbiology

[00:09:29.619]
and all of my filter filters follow along

[00:09:31.979]
with me. You'll see they're opened up a little bit more

[00:09:34.028]
compared to the home page. You can see them all

[00:09:36.139]
listed here.

[00:09:37.460]
So we can check off and then we're

[00:09:39.500]
just going to see all of the activities

[00:09:41.538]
we have available or we can

[00:09:43.570]
choose something else. So maybe I want to take a look

[00:09:45.629]
at chemistry and take a look at my atoms

[00:09:47.759]
or I'm interested in geology,

[00:09:50.418]
I'll be able to narrow that down right here.

[00:09:52.719]
Pull forward whatever I'm looking for.

[00:09:56.038]
And of course, this is in addition to the search,

[00:09:58.820]
but I do recommend using filters if maybe

[00:10:00.940]
your teachers or your students aren't exactly

[00:10:03.080]
sure what they're looking for. maybe

[00:10:05.168]
they know they need something related to animals

[00:10:07.899]
so they can click into, to zoology.

[00:10:10.168]
They don't know what animal they want to look at, but

[00:10:12.278]
they know they want to take a look at some sort of

[00:10:14.298]
a animal anatomy, using this

[00:10:16.450]
filter as opposed to searching is going

[00:10:18.649]
to limit that down for them. So they'll see what we have

[00:10:20.719]
available here.

[00:10:25.710]
Now, keeping with filters, but moving away

[00:10:27.927]
from the student facing filters a little bit, number

[00:10:29.989]
seven is going to be browsing

[00:10:32.330]
and searching through standards. So for

[00:10:34.340]
educators looking to really integrate this into

[00:10:36.460]
their classroom to make sure they do have

[00:10:38.609]
access,

[00:10:40.859]
they can browse or search standards.

[00:10:43.259]
And we do include both N G S s and common

[00:10:45.580]
core standards in here. So they

[00:10:47.590]
will be able to take a look at either one whichever

[00:10:49.940]
they need

[00:10:51.460]
and they can use this to filter

[00:10:53.769]
specifically to standards. You'll see, I've pulled

[00:10:55.778]
forward all of the standards listed or

[00:10:58.177]
they can actually use the search bar to search

[00:11:00.500]
for a specific standard. So if they

[00:11:02.557]
have one specifically in

[00:11:04.590]
mind that they want to take a look at they'll be able

[00:11:06.820]
to do here.

[00:11:09.090]
So give me one quick second

[00:11:13.129]
to jump back over.

[00:11:17.750]
There we go back to our page here.

[00:11:21.840]
Sorry, give me a second here everyone.

[00:11:25.269]
There we go. Sorry. My screen shot off on

[00:11:27.330]
me for a second. I think it saved for you guys,

[00:11:29.450]
but not for me. Um

[00:11:31.158]
But here we go. So we're back on this page.

[00:11:33.710]
Remember I got here just by filtering.

[00:11:36.479]
So I'm going to take off the filter I chose.

[00:11:38.710]
So I'm looking at all of my activities. So

[00:11:40.989]
down here on this left hand side,

[00:11:43.200]
you'll see we have our two options here for our standards.

[00:11:45.719]
Our common core and our N G S

[00:11:47.739]
s have been pulled out separately and

[00:11:49.859]
you'll say you'll see these stay collapsed.

[00:11:52.038]
So they don't automatically open like these other sections

[00:11:54.719]
just because students of course, will most likely

[00:11:56.879]
not need to use these. So we pull

[00:11:58.950]
them down to kind of hide

[00:12:00.979]
them, but they are here for teachers and they can

[00:12:03.090]
drop it down and you'll see they can choose whichever

[00:12:05.399]
standard they're interested in

[00:12:07.989]
in each of our entries. You'll see our tag with

[00:12:10.048]
the standards as well. We have our standard

[00:12:12.389]
here. This is the N G S S standard, of course.

[00:12:15.080]
And then you'll see we have the common core standards

[00:12:17.288]
listed here along with it.

[00:12:19.489]
And again, as I mentioned, not only can they

[00:12:21.788]
browse for whatever standard they're looking

[00:12:24.028]
for. They can also search. So I have

[00:12:26.427]
one already pulled up here that I can paste.

[00:12:28.729]
So I have my standard here. I'm going to run

[00:12:30.869]
my search

[00:12:32.460]
and you'll see it's going to pull forward everything related

[00:12:34.927]
to that one specific standard. So

[00:12:37.259]
if they don't want to browse if they have their standard

[00:12:39.519]
ready to go, they don't even need to leave the home

[00:12:41.548]
page. Just type their standard, their full

[00:12:43.729]
standard into the search and it's going to pull it forward

[00:12:46.099]
for them and they can start clicking through and

[00:12:48.158]
deciding what they want to use. You'll see we

[00:12:50.229]
have quite a few cells and

[00:12:52.418]
cell parts that are related to the specific

[00:12:54.759]
standard.

[00:12:58.440]
Now let's move away from filtering a little bit

[00:13:00.460]
here. So we took a look at how we can filter

[00:13:02.519]
by subject as well as by standard.

[00:13:05.408]
Now let's talk about linking

[00:13:07.460]
and accessing our activities for teachers.

[00:13:09.639]
So number six is going to be linking

[00:13:12.019]
directly to an activity.

[00:13:14.950]
So we can link either to just the activity

[00:13:17.408]
in general. So you just want students to click

[00:13:19.557]
into that, we can link that.

[00:13:22.399]
And excuse me, allowing

[00:13:24.408]
that link to activity is going to be at the very beginning

[00:13:27.080]
of the activity. So the starting slide

[00:13:29.739]
and they can also link to individual

[00:13:31.940]
slides. So they can choose,

[00:13:34.219]
I don't know, maybe slide four is where they want students

[00:13:36.519]
to start and where they want them to take a look at,

[00:13:38.668]
they can start right there

[00:13:41.340]
on that specific slide and

[00:13:43.469]
get going. And this is really great

[00:13:45.500]
if your teachers are using a learning

[00:13:47.538]
management system maybe and they want

[00:13:49.658]
to get this information out to them, they can just

[00:13:51.677]
copy that link, paste it wherever they want to go.

[00:13:53.759]
And students can access also

[00:13:55.798]
great to maybe put it in a syllabus or

[00:13:58.229]
a rubric for a project they're going to be doing.

[00:14:00.649]
It's a nice way to get students engaged

[00:14:02.778]
in the information.

[00:14:09.210]
So to do that, we're just going to click into one

[00:14:11.320]
of these

[00:14:13.048]
activities, we'll just click the first one cell

[00:14:15.269]
nucleus.

[00:14:17.239]
And as that's loading here,

[00:14:19.109]
you'll see down here underneath the, the title

[00:14:21.580]
and the description of the activity,

[00:14:23.739]
you're going to see the option to share. But

[00:14:26.038]
right next to that, you see, we have a link to activity

[00:14:28.519]
or we can link to slide here. So

[00:14:30.788]
clicking link to activity, you'll see, I just get

[00:14:32.859]
this basic link and this is

[00:14:34.960]
a permanent link. So you're not going

[00:14:37.149]
to have to worry about it breaking or something like that.

[00:14:39.259]
As long as you your learning

[00:14:41.460]
community has access to this resource,

[00:14:43.677]
this link is going to work for you and

[00:14:45.719]
this is just going to pull me here to the very beginning

[00:14:48.139]
of this activity.

[00:14:50.190]
If I click link to slide, which is right

[00:14:52.200]
next door to that,

[00:14:53.769]
that's going to pull me to a specific slide. So

[00:14:55.927]
it's going to be the same because I'm on the first slide.

[00:14:58.528]
But if I move it, you'll see here, this

[00:15:00.729]
has changed.

[00:15:02.509]
So I can find the specific part of this

[00:15:04.729]
activity I think is the most important

[00:15:07.658]
and we can take a look at that. Maybe we wanna talk about ribosomes,

[00:15:10.320]
we can just go directly to that

[00:15:12.500]
section, copy and paste this wherever

[00:15:14.788]
students want to go

[00:15:16.070]
and they will be able to click back and forth.

[00:15:18.158]
So even though they're started on this one side,

[00:15:20.399]
if they want to take a look back, they can do that,

[00:15:22.739]
it's still going to have this nice functionality.

[00:15:25.139]
It's actually going to look just like this

[00:15:27.389]
as soon as we able to click it and they'll still still see

[00:15:29.538]
this reference material here as well

[00:15:31.759]
if they want to take a look at that.

[00:15:38.969]
Now, in keeping with sharing activities

[00:15:41.489]
with students, my number five

[00:15:43.750]
tool is going to be getting teachers

[00:15:45.869]
to use that Google classroom integration

[00:15:49.129]
and we are fully integrated. So you

[00:15:51.288]
will be able to click into your Google

[00:15:53.570]
classroom button and do exactly

[00:15:55.677]
whatever you need to do. So you'll be able to create an assignments,

[00:15:58.389]
um make an announcement, I believe a discussion

[00:16:00.918]
board post is another option. Whatever you

[00:16:03.019]
can do in the native Google classroom interface,

[00:16:05.307]
you'll be able to do with this nice little pop up

[00:16:07.450]
that happens here. Anytime you're clicking

[00:16:09.649]
into an activity

[00:16:12.080]
and this is linked to all of our activities. So

[00:16:14.298]
whatever you're trying to get access to your students

[00:16:16.389]
will be able to see. So let's take another

[00:16:18.557]
quick look, I'm going to just stay on

[00:16:20.700]
the same activity that I was on before

[00:16:22.759]
here

[00:16:23.769]
and it's that the same spot as your link to option

[00:16:26.139]
here.

[00:16:27.038]
But it's under share.

[00:16:29.038]
You see when I select, share my Google classroom

[00:16:31.080]
icon is right here.

[00:16:33.908]
I'm already signed in. If you weren't signed in, it

[00:16:36.019]
would just prompt you to sign in.

[00:16:38.109]
I can choose my class,

[00:16:40.528]
I'll be able to choose my action. We

[00:16:42.807]
can create an assignment.

[00:16:44.149]
I'm not going to go through all of this. Of course, it takes

[00:16:46.200]
some time.

[00:16:47.090]
But you'll see, you'll be able to do this and it provides

[00:16:49.369]
this link for students. They'll be able to click, right?

[00:16:51.389]
And then they'll be able to take a look at wherever you

[00:16:53.427]
are. But once you assign

[00:16:55.649]
it, you can just close out and you stay here

[00:16:57.729]
on the native platform. So if you're planning

[00:16:59.869]
on maybe assigning more than one activity,

[00:17:02.190]
you can just start to go through and send whatever you

[00:17:04.259]
need to into your Google classroom.

[00:17:06.347]
This is a, a great way to do that.

[00:17:13.880]
So moving forward here, number four

[00:17:18.019]
is going to be our human anatomy contents

[00:17:20.459]
and I will mention these last

[00:17:22.660]
four

[00:17:23.689]
tips are all going to be content

[00:17:25.910]
focused. So they're going to be some different

[00:17:27.959]
bits of content that are really helpful for

[00:17:30.199]
students. So number four is

[00:17:32.327]
our human anatomy content

[00:17:34.910]
and that your students are able to browse

[00:17:36.989]
or search just like with any activity.

[00:17:39.180]
But they can also narrow it down based on system.

[00:17:42.150]
And our activities include full

[00:17:44.509]
system overview. So like the digestive

[00:17:46.689]
system, if they're learning about that, just in general,

[00:17:48.890]
they'll be able to navigate to that region

[00:17:51.229]
focused activities. So you'll see here

[00:17:53.308]
in my screenshot. If they just want to explore

[00:17:55.617]
the la, if they want to take a look at the muscles, the

[00:17:57.699]
bones,

[00:17:59.259]
you know, the veins, all that good stuff,

[00:18:01.479]
just in that one section, they'll be

[00:18:03.500]
able to do that or they can search

[00:18:05.857]
by a specific object. So maybe they

[00:18:07.939]
want to take a look at a bone or the heart

[00:18:10.250]
or lungs, they'll be able to

[00:18:12.347]
do that as well. So it's a really nice way to

[00:18:14.400]
help them narrow down to exactly what they're looking

[00:18:16.489]
for. Because of course, different

[00:18:18.567]
anatomy classes are taught in different ways. Some

[00:18:20.650]
are more focused on learning by region,

[00:18:23.219]
some are more focused on learning by system.

[00:18:26.269]
They'll be able to choose which they prefer to do

[00:18:28.449]
and still get great content no matter which way

[00:18:30.528]
they're accessing.

[00:18:32.650]
So let's go ahead and get to our anatomy content.

[00:18:35.250]
I'm going to do that just by jumping back to

[00:18:37.278]
the home page,

[00:18:40.380]
scrolling down to our human anatomy section.

[00:18:43.867]
I'm just going to view all of them

[00:18:45.759]
so we can take a look here.

[00:18:48.689]
So now that I've pulled this forward here again, as I mentioned,

[00:18:51.058]
we have different options. So you'll

[00:18:53.259]
see, I have things like the brain or bone listed

[00:18:55.308]
here. We have a full digestive

[00:18:57.327]
system. As I mentioned, if we're looking for

[00:18:59.390]
specific regions we have

[00:19:01.607]
elbow, wrist and hand that's going to pull forward

[00:19:03.670]
the muscles, the bones, the vascular

[00:19:06.250]
situation, all that good stuff

[00:19:08.410]
right here. You'll see, we also have our digestive

[00:19:10.489]
system

[00:19:12.489]
and I can select to view more and we can really get

[00:19:14.650]
into some pretty um pretty

[00:19:16.709]
in depth information here. So you'll see, I can

[00:19:18.778]
click into my heart here who want

[00:19:20.939]
to take a look at this

[00:19:23.009]
and this will be just fully focused

[00:19:25.097]
on that heart. You'll see my reference material

[00:19:27.229]
here, but students will be able to access

[00:19:29.548]
that this and get a really nice look

[00:19:31.617]
at whatever they're learning about here

[00:19:34.469]
and see if we can move that forward.

[00:19:37.489]
So this is another great option if

[00:19:39.890]
your learning community right now doesn't have access

[00:19:42.410]
to those expensive scientific

[00:19:44.769]
models. So students don't really have anything

[00:19:46.788]
to pull apart right now. They can pull apart

[00:19:49.130]
on this. They can take a look at whatever

[00:19:52.019]
um organ they're taking a look at, they can

[00:19:54.509]
navigate around, they can zoom in,

[00:19:56.567]
they can zoom out, you'll see everything is labeled

[00:19:58.650]
here.

[00:19:59.519]
So this is allowing them

[00:20:02.189]
to really manipulate whatever they're learning

[00:20:04.199]
about if they don't have access to something

[00:20:06.337]
physical.

[00:20:07.528]
And honestly, a lot of students prefer something

[00:20:09.607]
on the computer via something physi versus

[00:20:12.479]
something physical as well, just because it's a little

[00:20:14.670]
more interactive and they're going to kind

[00:20:16.798]
of see how things piece together nicely.

[00:20:24.038]
And as in all of our activities at

[00:20:26.067]
the very end here, we do include quizzes.

[00:20:28.680]
You see this one is asking them to reas

[00:20:31.107]
reassemble the four chambers of their hearts.

[00:20:33.750]
A lot of them will have multiple choice questions

[00:20:36.439]
or labeling questions as

[00:20:38.449]
well. So those are always included in these

[00:20:40.500]
activities too. These are great um

[00:20:43.150]
just refreshers to make sure students know what

[00:20:45.439]
they're learning, they aren't recorded.

[00:20:48.000]
So teachers won't be able to access those, but

[00:20:50.140]
they're great for self study for students.

[00:20:55.117]
So now I'm moving on from our human

[00:20:57.199]
anatomy content. Number three is going to be

[00:20:59.597]
our cycle activities and sometimes these are

[00:21:01.689]
a little bit lost in the resource just because

[00:21:03.719]
we have so many other great bits of information.

[00:21:05.837]
But this is really helpful for students

[00:21:07.989]
who are learning some of those more complex

[00:21:10.180]
cycles. So things like mitosis

[00:21:12.308]
and meiosis photosynthesis or

[00:21:14.439]
if we're talking about geology, the rock cycle

[00:21:16.479]
or the water cycle, they'll find all of this

[00:21:18.577]
content available to them.

[00:21:20.509]
And I like to think of these as a nice visual

[00:21:22.969]
supplements. So most likely they're going to be

[00:21:25.048]
learning these topics

[00:21:27.229]
together in class first. And

[00:21:29.489]
as they learn those, they can take a visual look

[00:21:31.558]
at that to kind of understand this is really beneficial

[00:21:34.150]
for those more difficult topics like

[00:21:36.548]
photosynthesis. Where there's a lot of steps, there's

[00:21:38.729]
a lot of moving parts, there's a lot of different

[00:21:40.900]
structures involved. Students

[00:21:43.317]
would be able to really easily navigate through

[00:21:45.449]
and take a look at that.

[00:21:48.739]
And for me, the best way to access

[00:21:50.817]
those is to just run a search. So if we search

[00:21:53.199]
for mitosis,

[00:21:55.449]
instead of browsing,

[00:21:57.670]
you'll see here, I pulled this forward

[00:21:59.939]
and these look just a little bit different here

[00:22:02.097]
here. Let me this up.

[00:22:04.410]
Since it's a process, we've kind of organized

[00:22:06.650]
it a little bit to where it looks like

[00:22:08.827]
steps instead of just having one kind

[00:22:11.028]
of main thing here, you'll

[00:22:13.219]
see, we've got like this little wheel type situation

[00:22:15.769]
that's showing all of the different steps of mitosis

[00:22:18.209]
here. And I'm just bringing that in really

[00:22:20.500]
close. Let's go ahead and start this. Let me take

[00:22:22.660]
a look. So the activity itself

[00:22:24.890]
is going to allow students to kind of click

[00:22:26.930]
through.

[00:22:27.930]
So they're going to see each of the phases of mitosis.

[00:22:30.170]
It's going to give them some pretty detailed

[00:22:32.250]
information here

[00:22:35.558]
and step by step,

[00:22:37.130]
they're kind of going to learn. So again,

[00:22:39.160]
most likely they're learning this with

[00:22:41.278]
their teacher kind of in class before they get

[00:22:43.390]
going, but this is giving them that more visual

[00:22:46.028]
access points and

[00:22:48.117]
this is still has the ability

[00:22:50.439]
to be pulled apart here.

[00:22:53.000]
So if students want to pull things apart, they certainly

[00:22:55.288]
can

[00:22:56.150]
kind of get a really nice understanding

[00:22:58.199]
of what they're looking at. You'll see it is labeled

[00:23:00.380]
here as well

[00:23:01.949]
to really help students. And then you'll see at the

[00:23:04.048]
very end,

[00:23:05.117]
we're starting to build together our two cells.

[00:23:11.930]
Now, another type of

[00:23:13.949]
cycle is going to be something that's a little

[00:23:15.969]
bit more on the macroscopic scale,

[00:23:18.250]
something like the rock cycle and that looks

[00:23:20.278]
a little bit different. So let's search

[00:23:23.729]
I can for the rock cycle and you can kind

[00:23:25.759]
of see what that's going to look like. That

[00:23:27.900]
one is a little bit more visual in the sense that

[00:23:29.959]
you're going to see um

[00:23:32.380]
what's going on in the world around you. Of course, you can't

[00:23:34.420]
really do that with cells, which is why we have

[00:23:36.607]
that little carousel look to them. But

[00:23:38.778]
if we're talking about something that's at that microscopic

[00:23:40.959]
level, we are still trying to make it

[00:23:43.077]
as interesting and as visual as

[00:23:45.087]
possible here. So you'll see, we've got each

[00:23:47.219]
of the steps of the rock cycle and

[00:23:49.298]
just like with mitosis, I can click through

[00:23:51.400]
here

[00:23:52.750]
and I'll be able to walk through each of the steps.

[00:23:55.048]
Nice and simply,

[00:23:58.920]
so let's jump back here. We're getting close to the end

[00:24:00.969]
of our time.

[00:24:02.180]
So I wanna make sure we hit everything. So number two

[00:24:04.778]
is our dissection alternatives

[00:24:06.798]
and I was a biology teacher before I came to

[00:24:08.900]
Gale. So I always found this

[00:24:10.979]
really interesting as we started to click

[00:24:13.239]
through.

[00:24:14.035]
So these can replace in person dissection.

[00:24:16.314]
They're great for virtual

[00:24:18.913]
learning. If you still have a lot of students who are learning

[00:24:21.232]
in a hybrid situation or a virtual situation,

[00:24:24.134]
They don't need to be on campus to dissect

[00:24:26.604]
something they can do that right here on this platform.

[00:24:29.334]
Also great for budget constraints. If

[00:24:31.364]
you aren't able to purchase frogs,

[00:24:33.942]
fetal pigs, owl pellets,

[00:24:36.074]
whatever it is, we have

[00:24:38.153]
those on this resource. So you can direct

[00:24:40.255]
students to this instead.

[00:24:41.920]
Also great for students who are uncomfortable

[00:24:44.000]
with this section. Of course, there are a lot of students

[00:24:46.077]
who just

[00:24:47.048]
don't feel like they can cut into,

[00:24:50.337]
you know, a physical specimen.

[00:24:52.558]
So they can use this instead, they'll still be able

[00:24:54.587]
to see each piece of

[00:24:56.939]
of the puzzle, each piece of the organism,

[00:24:59.130]
but they won't have to touch it. They won't have to smell

[00:25:01.180]
it. It can kind of get them in a better situation

[00:25:03.739]
to take a look.

[00:25:07.189]
So now to get to these, I can search here. So

[00:25:09.317]
if I may um going

[00:25:11.630]
to dissect frogs, I can search frogs.

[00:25:13.969]
But I think it's really beneficial if you're trying

[00:25:15.979]
to find a specific animal

[00:25:18.150]
to go back to our filtering options,

[00:25:20.689]
go under biology and hit zoology.

[00:25:23.038]
That's going to show all of our animals.

[00:25:26.077]
So, you'll see here. We have a lot of different

[00:25:28.250]
animals, but we do have some of the more popular

[00:25:31.357]
dissection animals. So

[00:25:33.670]
a cat we have here, an earthworm.

[00:25:35.857]
We have a full frog and enemy. We do have

[00:25:38.048]
a fetal pig here,

[00:25:40.180]
scrolling down. You'll see. We go on and on

[00:25:42.317]
here. We do have an owl pellet

[00:25:44.420]
there it is. We do have an owl pellet here

[00:25:46.670]
as well. So if you can't afford the

[00:25:48.680]
owl pellets, but you still want students to be able to

[00:25:50.719]
kind of

[00:25:51.949]
dig in and see what they can find.

[00:25:54.140]
They can certainly do that on this platform here

[00:25:56.367]
as well. We do have the owl pellet listed,

[00:25:59.219]
but you see a lot of other things that

[00:26:01.278]
typically you wouldn't have access to, even

[00:26:03.380]
if you had the funds. You know, most likely

[00:26:05.519]
you won't be able to get jellyfish into your school

[00:26:07.808]
to dissect or you won't be able to get a mahi mahi

[00:26:10.150]
into your school. So this

[00:26:12.229]
is a really nice alternative and it's a way for

[00:26:14.317]
students to see different things

[00:26:16.577]
that are out there in that world. They're going to see

[00:26:18.587]
different types of anatomy because of course, it varies

[00:26:20.910]
wildly.

[00:26:22.469]
So you'll see if they can pull this apart,

[00:26:25.087]
they can zoom in here.

[00:26:27.130]
Now, you'll see, we have

[00:26:28.617]
all of this great info right

[00:26:30.817]
here.

[00:26:31.930]
And again, they can kind of drag to wherever

[00:26:34.130]
they want to go. So if they want to specifically look

[00:26:36.327]
here, they can certainly do that

[00:26:38.327]
and they'll still be able to walk through and have everything

[00:26:40.607]
pointed out to them.

[00:26:44.689]
So we get another great feature also just

[00:26:46.729]
great for students who are just, you know, interested

[00:26:49.097]
in animals in general. They can take a look

[00:26:51.337]
at this and whatever they're interested, maybe they want to learn about

[00:26:53.469]
birds, what birds look like. They can take a look

[00:26:55.538]
at this at pigeon. If they're interested

[00:26:57.949]
in bugs, you'll see, we have caterpillar, butterflies,

[00:27:00.644]
mosquitoes,

[00:27:02.144]
you'll see, we also have a human evolution

[00:27:04.275]
option here as well. So we want to

[00:27:06.324]
have a more visual look

[00:27:08.354]
at human evolution. We do have something prebuilt

[00:27:10.555]
for that listed under zoology

[00:27:13.394]
if students are looking for something like that.

[00:27:16.759]
Now, number one here and

[00:27:18.769]
this, you know, there could be an argument that

[00:27:20.867]
this be number one versus two or three

[00:27:22.959]
since these are all kind of content focused. But

[00:27:25.219]
I have chosen to make number one our interactive

[00:27:27.890]
periodic table and this periodic

[00:27:30.250]
table is completely

[00:27:33.250]
editable, completely clickable. And

[00:27:35.420]
your students will be able to see periodic trends,

[00:27:37.969]
elemental information, electron

[00:27:40.130]
configurations if they're taking a look at that.

[00:27:42.847]
So it's a really simple way to access all

[00:27:45.000]
of this information. And as I'm clicking over

[00:27:47.288]
to this, I have a little story for

[00:27:49.390]
you. So when I was in school,

[00:27:51.680]
I had a really, really hard time remembering

[00:27:54.150]
periodic trends like real, it was like

[00:27:56.259]
my Achilles Heel.

[00:27:57.640]
I just could not do it for whatever reason.

[00:27:59.959]
And I had a periodic table in my book

[00:28:02.357]
and I had that spot bookmarked and I had

[00:28:04.538]
all of the trends written on it. So I remember every

[00:28:06.630]
time I needed to remember something, I had

[00:28:08.837]
to pull up my book, find that page

[00:28:11.509]
and then do whatever I was doing. So the page

[00:28:13.617]
was ruined, it was ripped. You know, I always had

[00:28:15.750]
this big heavy book with me. It was just

[00:28:17.880]
a pain throughout my whole year.

[00:28:20.278]
So this replaces that.

[00:28:22.489]
So once it loads up, I will say the periodic table

[00:28:25.117]
is a lot more involved.

[00:28:27.269]
So sometimes it does take a second for it to load.

[00:28:29.567]
So tell your, tell your students just

[00:28:31.587]
to give it a second because it's a lot of information

[00:28:34.028]
that they're going to have access to here.

[00:28:37.587]
But there we go. So this is our periodic table

[00:28:39.719]
here. So you'll see, it's really completely

[00:28:42.729]
editable.

[00:28:43.857]
I can click on any of my.

[00:28:46.048]
Here we go elements.

[00:28:48.180]
If I'm interested in elements, you'll see here. It gives me

[00:28:50.269]
all of the information, but we'll see

[00:28:52.469]
what the actual element itself looks

[00:28:54.617]
like, which is just so handy. You'll see

[00:28:56.778]
we even have electron shells available

[00:28:59.347]
for students. Who are starting to learn at that level.

[00:29:03.577]
But on this left hand side here, this

[00:29:05.890]
is what really kind of excites me.

[00:29:08.519]
You'll see some different trends here.

[00:29:10.597]
So if we want to learn about electron negativity,

[00:29:12.837]
I think that was most likely the the worst one for

[00:29:14.880]
me, I can click that electron negativity

[00:29:17.630]
option

[00:29:18.538]
and you'll see, it gives me kind of this

[00:29:20.597]
this visual

[00:29:22.798]
look here. So you'll see the trend here,

[00:29:26.699]
just go back over here and

[00:29:28.750]
it works with atomic number as well. So you'll see

[00:29:32.038]
things that go up, things that go down,

[00:29:34.577]
atomic weight is listed here as well

[00:29:36.778]
as boiling and melting points.

[00:29:39.607]
And again, I had just the hardest

[00:29:41.630]
time with this. So the thought of

[00:29:43.670]
students being able to just have this ready

[00:29:45.910]
on demand, pull it up and they'll be

[00:29:47.989]
able to do whatever activity they're working on.

[00:29:50.357]
is pretty incredible, they'll be able

[00:29:52.519]
to click through and see that whenever they need

[00:29:54.689]
it, whatever they need, they'll be able to access

[00:29:57.000]
right here on this platform.

[00:29:59.209]
So keep this in mind for your chemistry teachers.

[00:30:01.617]
The introduction is

[00:30:03.689]
what I like to mention the interactive periodic

[00:30:05.910]
table introduction. We do have

[00:30:07.959]
other activities involving the periodic table

[00:30:10.229]
as they start to go through different element types

[00:30:12.317]
and things like that. But this introduction

[00:30:14.509]
is really just the base like the base model,

[00:30:17.048]
let them do whatever they need to and they'll just

[00:30:19.219]
always have access to it.

[00:30:23.817]
Now, those are our top 10 kind

[00:30:26.107]
of tips, tricks ideas. Of

[00:30:28.229]
course, there's many more, but those are the ones

[00:30:30.337]
we've decided to pull forward today. I

[00:30:32.400]
do have some wrap up information for you.

[00:30:34.479]
It looks like we're just at our time but

[00:30:36.837]
if you have additional questions, feel free to

[00:30:38.910]
reach out to your customer success manager

[00:30:41.038]
at [email protected]

[00:30:43.087]
you'll be forwarded to the correct individual.

[00:30:45.597]
So if you maybe need some additional information

[00:30:48.009]
about the resource or want to dig deeper, they'll

[00:30:50.337]
be able to help you out if you don't have access

[00:30:52.729]
to this resource right now, but you're interested and

[00:30:55.019]
you don't know who your sales consultant is. You

[00:30:57.077]
can, you can access

[00:30:59.150]
support.gale.com/repfinder

[00:31:01.400]
and it'll forward you along to the correct individual

[00:31:04.140]
or if you already know who it is, just send them an email.

[00:31:06.449]
They, I'm sure they love to hear from you

[00:31:09.250]
and we do have quite a bit of support and training

[00:31:11.449]
material created for you already

[00:31:13.939]
as well. So if you're planning on promoting this information

[00:31:16.567]
to your science department or to your science

[00:31:18.750]
students, we have some premade information

[00:31:21.327]
for you. If you go on our support site, which is support.gale.com

[00:31:23.699]
So take a look

[00:31:25.750]
before you build any materials on your own. We don't

[00:31:27.910]
want you to reinvent the wheel. We could have something

[00:31:30.048]
premade that's going to help you out.

[00:31:32.150]
And I do have a session survey if you have the time

[00:31:34.410]
to take it. I know we went over it by

[00:31:36.449]
two minutes today. So I am sorry about that.

[00:31:38.607]
But if you do have the time, I have a QR code

[00:31:40.808]
here or it does open in your browser once

[00:31:42.900]
you close out of our webinar today.

[00:31:45.719]
And I haven't seen any questions come in here,

[00:31:48.259]
so I'll go ahead and end this session and I do appreciate

[00:31:50.577]
everyone for being on the line today and

[00:31:52.778]
hopefully we'll see you in future sessions.

[00:31:54.798]
Bye bye now.
