Corinth Learning Journeys: Izabela Orłowska, Poland
17. June 2019
In our next chapter of the Corinth Learning Journeys, we won’t leave the shores of the Baltic sea yet. This time, Izabela Orłowska will share her experience with using the Corinth app in her classes. Izabela is teaching biology, natural sciences and geography at the Primary school No. 8 in Gdynia, Poland.
Small wings, high flights
The name of the project, thanks to which Corinth was introduced to Izabela’s school, expresses the idea behind our app well. The mission is to give even the youngest students an instrument to diýscover amazing world of science and to learn as much as possible! Under this project, the Corinth app was purchased to the total of 23 elementary schools in Gdynia.
As Izabela says, the combination of the visuals of the Corinth app with the interactive tables is very effective in the lessons. Every student can come closer, touch the model, spin it, enlarge it, highlight its parts. Apart from increasing the participation of the students, it also lets their confidence grow. And what do the students think about it?
Corinth fully available in Polish
The deployment of the Corinth app to the Primary school No. 8 in Gdynia was made possible also because the app is fully translated to Polish. We are constantly adding new localizations to enable the majority of students to access our content in their native language! Currently, apart from English, you can also use our app in Czech, Polish, Slovak and Hungarian localization. Another advantage of the app is the bilingual option, which allows the users to see two different languages at the same time. Using this feature, students and teachers can easily improve their English vocabulary and learn how to describe problems with scientific terms. Additionally, a small extension of the descriptions of our models is also available in Latin, which can be useful mainly for students that want to prepare themselves for careers such as medicine, etc.
