Overview

VIDEO

SPARKvue is our award-winning science learning application that combines rich standards-based content, data collection, visualization, analysis, and assessment into one seamless environment. The new expanded framework allows students to perform sensor data analysis – at school or home, with opportunities for student reflection using journal snapshots of work as well as written observations – all with the touch of a finger.

The full and complete version of SPARKvue is now available as FREE apps for Chromebook, iPad and Android Tablets. There are also free 60-day trials for PC and Mac with very affordable single user and site licenses after that.

Easy to use and yet powerful, new data-sharing and other collaborative features make this application ideal for use in and out of the science classroom. SPARKvue offers the same user experience regardless of your technology platform and is the only ChromeBook App on the market that allows for direct data collection on a ChromeBook device.
