While learning through lectures and readings is beneficial, sometimes the best learning strategy is to tinker and experiment with interactions and simulations. With this virtual tool:

  • Students learn how to read thermometers simply by experimenting with the slider and observing its impact. 
  • Educators foster student engagement and participation by presenting this tool during web lectures or in the classroom using a digital projector.

You can find this and other virtual tools in our flagship course—The Ultimate Head Start in Healthcare Career Training.
