Gale Offers Science Curriculum-Aligned, Digital Resource with 3D Capabilities

The company’s new product allows instructors to incorporate digital and 3D content into the classroom that is mapped to national science curriculum.

Gale, a part of Cengage Learning, has released a new digital science resource available now for schools.

Gale Interactive: Science covers biology, chemistry, and Earth and space science topics that appear in middle and high school curriculums. Its content aligns with Next Gen Science Standards and Common Core State Standards at the high school level.

The product’s key features include:

  • Self-assessments at the end of sessions to review key concepts;

  • Guided interactive lessons and models;

  • Ease-of-use on computers, laptops, interactive whiteboards and projects;

  • 3D printing capability with installed driver; and

  • Interface and content to be available in multiple languages.

In addition, the product has test prep, research and homework assignments, and in-class demonstrations for teachers. Students can use Gale Interactive: Science to explore concepts with tools to zoom and rotate digital models. Throughout lessons, they have the option to view relevant reference content, and they can search across content.

“School administrators are looking for the marriage of educational technology with quality digital content to help develop future-ready skills in their students,” said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager for Gale, in a prepared statement. “Gale Interactive: Science is really a complete learning solution for them as it combines reference and periodical content with interactive sessions to aid in project-based teaching and learning.”

Gale has provided research and education resources to libraries for 60 years. The new product is now available for a free trial. Further information about the product is available on the Gale Interactive: Science site.
