The goal of the Science Bits project is to provide teachers with tools that promote high quality science education. This common goal is shared by everyone in the Science Bits team—a multidisciplinary team of science teachers, educators, video editors, and multimedia professionals from all around the world who work within the framework of the International Science Teaching Foundation.
The Science Bits team has directed all its efforts towards creating an outstanding repository of multimedia science lessons for middle and high school teachers. Science Bits adheres to the constructivist 5E learning model, which promotes real understanding and engages students in science learning while helping them understand the relevance of science to their lives. Its lessons are clearly structured around the 5E model, meticulously argued at a pedagogical level, and enriched with a wide array of multimedia learning objects designed to capture the attention of digital native students and enhance their learning experience.
Science Bits wants to play an active role in promoting the change from a transmission educational model—based on the transmission of facts from teacher to learner—to a constructivist one—based on inquiry, discovery, and learning-by-doing. And the best way to bring about this change is to empower teachers with user-friendly tools of great educational potential and to do so at an international level.
