BOISE, Idaho, Aug. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via PRWEB – PCS Edventures!, Inc. (OTCQB: PCSV), a leading provider of K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs today announced the release of its new curricular approach called LABCards.
Educators purchasing PCS Edventures! STEM products now have the choice between two different sets of curriculum: the rich, teacher-directed classroom curriculum or the newly developed, student-driven LABCard curriculum. The classroom curriculum was designed by a master teacher to emphasize process skill development in students, and is flexible enough for any classroom with grades 6-8. The curriculum includes a variety of rich educational tools including embedded journaling and peer assisted review (PAR); it also provides both a standard assessment approach as well as a continuum assessment model.
The new LABCard curriculum approach, on the other hand, is designed for more student-driven educational environments including after-school programs and clubs in addition to classrooms. They were developed around what is known as mastery-based assessment, which is perfect for differentiated learning and student-driven success. The first set of LABCards was designed around Computer Science with Robotics, using the PCS Edventures! Discover Robotics and Programming kit. Using this STEM education solution, students are empowered and gain distinct benefits by having the freedom to iterate and design robotics and engineering solutions in response to unique challenges. Educators can now easily incorporate robotics into their classroom with this engaging and educational kit.
