This year's resolution. Save money on education and learn more. Happy New Year everyone!
SOPHIA, an online social education platform, is celebrating the culmination of its “Get Schooled with Bill Nye” campaign with the nation’s largest flipped classroom demonstration with teachers, students and parents. Flipped classrooms are a growing approach to integrating technology into education, and use a blended form of learning that provides instruction both in and out of the classroom to enhance individual student learning. Event participants are invited to review a tutorial from Bill Nye in advance of the event, and then join Bill Nye at the Mall of America for a review of the lesson and take a quiz that demonstrates the bridge between learning in and out of the classroom.
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 10, 2013 - High school students wanting to get a jumpstart on college can now take a free online college-level course on SOPHIA.org and "Get Schooled with Bill Nye." One lucky student who completes a SOPHIA course will also win the chance to star in a video with Bill Nye the Science Guy.
"While the cost of college continues to rise, we don't believe a student's academic future should be determined by a price tag," said Allison Gage, president of SOPHIA.org. "We want to empower students to find new and innovative ways to get a degree. Our program is proven to be unique, effective and affordable, which is evident in our 85 percent completion rate."
