Galaxy Learn

Our Vision

What will learning look like in the year 3001?

Everything will be...

Experience-based

Need to figure out which chemical compounds bind with which? Get into the shrinking machine and manipulate and investigate DNA molecules with your own hands.

Hands-on

Interested in the life cycle of the polar bear? Transform yourself so that you can BE the polar bear, making tough decisions to survive in a melting world.

Integrated and Interdisciplinary

The game = the test = the report = the analysis. Galaxy Learn's interactions are built on the embedded assessment model -- learners demonstrate their learning by engaging in the interaction.


Our Technology

Individualized reports and evaluations of learners' activities, progress and achievements.

Enriching simulations, games, labs, interactions, project workshops.

A global community of contributors ensures quality and continual improvement of learning modules.
