Content-Specific Interactive Tool



Content-specific interactive tools allows students the ability to explore curriculum-related concepts and relationships in an interactive way.



Interactive tools allow students to "discover" relationships and concepts by manipulating variables and seeing the effects.  Commonly called "widgets", these kinds of content-specific interactive tools often focus on discrete concepts that are clearly tied to curriculum standards.  Many sites that host these tools offer suggested curricular links, teaching strategies, and even student handouts.
