Welcome Science Teachers from NSTA!
Thank you for wanting to learn more about our innovative social learning science platform for middle school students, MySciLife®!
MySciLife is a social learning environment where students design and maintain "identities" to LIVE and LEARN science. The platform is a product of The Source for Learning, a nonprofit organization providing high quality and FREE resources to the education community for almost 40 years.
MySciLife maintains complete student anonymity in a teacher-moderated, password-protected environment. All students must have parent permission to participate in MySciLife and interact with peers only known by their science "identity" names. No one other than you (the teacher) and the individual student can see their real name, school, or location.
Through teacher-guided exchanges and prompts, students using MySciLife can personify science concepts, maintaining their identities through meaningful interactions with fellow students. While doing so, they learn research, writing, and digital media skills as they interact with their peers through social learning posts.
