What’s a PLIX?
PLIX are byte-sized modalities to “Play, Learn, Interact, and Explore” a concept. PLIX help students gain a deeper understanding of the concepts through interaction. They focus on one or two relationships versus more complex interactions like those modeled in simulations.
Can I try it?
Sure, play with hundreds of PLIX here: http://interactives.ck12.org/
- As a warm-up when introducing a concept
- As a chance to explore more after being introduced to a concept and to gain a deeper understanding
- As a review of a topic
- As a fun homework assignment
- As a demonstration of a real world example of math or science
How can I help spread the word about it?
Please let your fellow teachers/colleagues know via teacher forums, email and share on Facebook, Twitter using #plix.
