Physics and Chemistry are the geniuses of this month
Educational resources and contents for Physics and Chemistry breathed to life with animation and interactivity
As many of you know, Genially is a tool which allows you to make an endless amount of interactive and animated content. A lot of this content has made its way into classrooms: infographics, presentations, posters, maps… these are the materials used by teachers to share knowledge and teach classes and by students to capture what they’ve learned and do their schoolwork. With Genially, you have the added advantage of an abundance of templates and inspiring examples that can help you take the first step, which is often the hardest part.
Genially also makes adding interactivity and animation to your content simple and intuitive, a quality that has made it popular in the world of education. It enriches students’ learning in the classroom by pushing students to interact with the lesson and further explore its content, as some of the information is strategically hidden.
With all of this in mind, we’ve decided to launch “Chemistry and Physics Month” at Genially, dedicating March to contents made for teaching these subjects. What do you think? We hope you like the idea and that it takes off. We’re already thinking about which subject to take on next. Any suggestions? Your feedback and ideas are what make Genially great, and we love hearing from you in the comments, on social media (Facebook and Twitter), and by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alright, let’s get this show started.
First, we’ll look at a genially creation called “Science is Genius”. We’ve used this interactive template to group together the new content we’ve created for physics and chemistry. If you click on each one, a window opens with another genially creation, allowing you to see the variety of content available. You’ll find this template in the section of our website for interactive designs. What might you use it for? Get creative!
Next up is “The History of Chemistry”. In this infographic, we’ve tried to represent the most important chemistry discoveries and chemists in one place. Along with the info that you see at first glance, passing your cursor over each of the dates, you’ll uncover more about the turning points in the evolution of our understanding of chemistry. It’s in the infographic section of our website for you to use. Have we forgotten important events in the history of chemistry? Let us know how we did.
Don’t miss out of one of our favorite new additions: Our “Interactive Periodic Table”. Pass your cursor over an element to see its name and atomic weight. Then try clicking on each of the families and states of matter to divide the info and interact with this great tool. It’s sure to surprise you.
We’ve also been thinking about those who want to make a genius science-themed presentation and have made you a template whose cover slide features the great Albert Einstein. Use and modify all you like! You’ll find the template in the section dedicated to presentations.
But Physics and Chemistry Month doesn’t stop there. We’ve also developed other templates and examples that will delight any fan of test tubes and laboratories. Under “interactive designs” you’ll find a fun template which stars an atom. Click here to check it out.
We’ve also been working on creating content related to two science giants we admire: Albert Einstein and Marie Curie. You can find 2 biographical info cards which you can use to talk about these famous researchers. You can find them here and here, under the category Posters.
We’d like you to know that this doesn’t end here. Throughout March, we’ll be making new Physics and Chemistry-related templates and resources available.
We hope you’ve enjoyed the content we’ve created to make learning and teaching Physics and Chemistry easy. Remember that you have all these tools available to you at www.genial.ly, where you can edit them and make them your own.
Have a blast with science!
