It is an engaging and interactive virtual experience that reinforces core content by learning about the real-world environment around us.
Erin Russo, the principal of Discovery, speaks about its impact on education: “The dashboard recreates the experience of watching a Zero Energy school come to life for those new cohorts of students. Teachers use the dashboard to create complex learning opportunities. Giving students a portal to the inner workings of their school creates pride and a sense of collective responsibility for their environment.”
