Core Sciences is a new interactive learning platform that is designed by KS4 science teachers to help students with their GCSEs. The current curriculum puts a heavier emphasis on practical exams which now constitute 15% of the total marks. This can be problematic because students are usually unable to attempt practical experiments multiple times, which means that they have to deal with the pressure of trying to succeed the first time around. This can be extremely stressful for students, teachers and parents which is why Core Sciences offers the perfect solution to the problem.
Here are 3 reasons why your school could benefit from using Core Sciences:
1) It’s Cost-Effective
With all lessons being conducted virtually, including lab experiments, there are no worries when it comes to making mistakes. Students can rectify any mistakes they make and have multiple chances to try again, unlike with real life lab experiments. This also means that there is no messy lab aftermath to deal with or any need to repurchase pricey equipment. This makes the platform extremely budget friendly.
2) It Takes the Stress Out of Your Job
Lesson planning can often be difficult and time-consuming, especially when it comes to attempting to cater to the individual needs of each student. This is where Core Sciences can alleviate the stress. Fully comprehensive lessons can be planned in advance or at short notice without the need to use any other resources. All presentations, tests, worksheets, games and activities are provided for to keep students motivated and entertained. Teachers can decide whether their students work independently, in groups according to ability or as a whole class; lessons can be tailored to your students’ needs.
3) It Allows You to Track Your Students’ Progress
Powerful in-built tools allow teachers to easily access progress reports which display class and individual student performance according to specific topics and scientific aptitudes. Teachers and parents receive additional notifications when a student has attempted a test as well as progress indications. Teachers can also set targets for their students which will allow teachers to track student performance against expected levels.
