What Is Conceptual Academy?
Conceptual Academy is a library of science video lessons housed within a sophisticated online learning management system. Through Conceptual Academy the concepts of science are presented to the student, much like the textbook. But while the textbook is where students can read, Conceptual Academy is where they can watch and listen helping to reach a wider range of learning preferences. Mostly, the author created video lessons at Conceptual Academy provide the context students need to read the textbook with greater understanding. Students are then set to have that understanding challenged in the classroom under the expert guidance of the course instructor.
Instructors use Conceptual Academy as tool that helps them to “flip” their classrooms, which means students can go home for their lectures and come to class to actively participate. Conceptual Academy is also a key resource for online courses.
Author-led self-study courses are offered for the independent learner, who upon registering has access to the same resources provided to colleges and schools including automated quizzes, a grade book, worksheets, hands-on activities, homework, and unit exams. These self study courses are particularly applicable to the home school. While Conceptual Academy delivers the content of science, the home school instructor is thus free to focus on the most important and rewarding aspect of teaching, which is being there to help the student learn.
