iSTELR - getting started
iSTELR is an enhanced learning environment for students, incorporating multimedia and interactive elements. For teachers, it provides a simplified workflow – student work is instantly accessible and teachers can provide feedback as required. Teachers do not have to use the iSTELR content in a prescriptive manner. One of the major features of iSTELR is the ability for teachers to take the standard content and modify it for their students – either by deleting or adding questions or by altering the sequence. In addition, teachers are able to create their own activities for students to complete.
iSTELR is powered by Stile, an exciting new Australian product that makes it simple for teachers to assemble their own materials or materials from the web, to create elegant, interactive lessons which the students can complete online.
iSTELR provides a digital version of the STELR Renewable Energy workbook. It has been split into 3 modules for use at multiple year levels:
- STELR Unit 1: Investigating Energy
- STELR Unit 2: Understanding Energy
- STELR Unit 3: Powering Earth
New STELR modules are being developed for delivery through iSTELR.
