An excerpt of the full article

Mimio discussed its new MimioScience product, a collection of interactive lessons that are among the first to address the Next Generation Science Standards. The product features 75 interactive whiteboard units that provide more than 225 high-quality lessons for students in grades 3-8. These lessons cover the areas of physical science, Earth and space science, engineering, life science, and science processes.

Moving away from presenting science content as a list of facts to be memorized, the MimioScience curriculum is organized into a set of practices to be performed. Every grade-appropriate activity, tested for effectiveness by students and teachers alike, ties a particular scientific concept or principle to a science practice, Mimio says. In this way, MimioScience supports the goal of the Next Generation Science Standards, which is to identify what students can do, not just how many facts they can recount. Each lesson works on Mimio interactive whiteboards and those developed by other vendors.

In June, the company released 26 physical science units (about 80 lessons) and 18 science processes units (about 54 lessons). This winter, Mimio will release seven engineering and technology units and 18 earth and space units (about 54 lessons). Twelve life science units (about 36 lessons) will be available for downloading in April. The price of the MimioScience interactive lessons is $1,299 per school, per year.
