The two big questions in secondary school science:
- What is the simplest, most effective way of raising grades in Science?
- What is the simplest, most effective way of developing an interest in Science?
For many teachers the answer to both questions is one that relates to such issues as improving student motivation and enthusiasm by presenting science in a continuously lively multi-sensory manner.
Unfortunately such an approach can be very time consuming for teachers. And that is why we have developed Clickscience.
ClickScience improves student motivation and independent learning skills, helping to boost student performance in Science.
ClickScience provides comprehensive pre-built schemes of work for GCSE Core, Additional and Separate Sciences plus assessment tools to build your own pages and lessons and e-portfolio. It's your own bespoke science VLE.
The platform leads you through the OCR National Level 2 in Science with content and assessment task ideas provided in context. It also allows you to edit and adapt lessons to best fit the learning needs of your students and develops a cohesive approach to 14-16 Science across your department.
ClickScience is provided as an online resource via your web browser.
It is suitable for
- All Entry level/GCSE/OCR National Level 2 Science lessons
- Approximately 90-120 guided learning hours per GCSE course.
Principle age range
- 14-16 (KS4)
"I don't think it's any coincidence that since the introduction of ClickScience, our results have risen from 42% to 60% A*-C which takes us 10% above the national average."Wodensborough Community Technology College, Wednesbury
