Indian Springs Educational Platform consists of a new Google Education System that is based in the Cloud.
With this cutting edge learning platform, it allows the teachers @ ISS to drop in any level of curriculum in place at any level of learning personally designed for the student.
The new Google system also is a automated learning model that tracks the students progress in ways that will naturally contribute to the learning based on students ability and gives student access to avenues to stimulate growth in learning realtime. This giving an unlimited resource for the school to tap into for custom learning packages that can be built for each student.
The Cloud System allows Teachers/Staff/Students to be connected in realtime during school day and allow interactive classroom features for sharing documents, assignments and other school functions.
In colaberation with the Google Cloud Learning Platform is the program STEM.
STEM is a pretty hot word these days, but do you know what it stands for or how important it really is?
What is STEM? What is STEAM?
STEM is the future. STEM is science, technology, engineering, and math. STEAM adds ART to the picture. These are all areas of learning that our kids need to be comfortable with to excel in the future.
STEM makes creators, thinkers, problem solvers, doers, innovators, and inventors.
Exposing kids to simple STEM ideas at an early age today sets a foundation for higher learning tomorrow.
Check out many STEM ideas that even a preschool age kid can try!

THE A-Z of STEM ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS
I am very excited to open the A-Z of STEM activities for kids series with, What is STEM! So just what is STEM and what is this A-Z STEM series all about? For the past year, my son and I have greatly enjoyed building our science knowledge with more than 30 awesome beginner science activities. We have explored many areas including physical science, chemistry, and Earth science with our Saturday Science blog hop . We have decided to transform our Saturday blog hop into STEM Saturday and broaden the base of activities we create and share with all of you. I thought a great way to kickoff, STEM Saturday would be to create an awesome resource of STEM activities from amazing bloggers around the world!
STEM is a real world focus. STEM is hands-on learning that applies to the world around us. STEM builds and teaches creativity, problem solving, life skills, ingenuity, resourcefulness, patience, curiosity. STEM is what shapes the future as our world grows and changes. STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. STEM is everywhere and in everything we do and how we live. From the natural world around us to the tablets in our hands that show us the world far, far away. STEM builds inventors!
WHY CHOOSE STEM?
Our kids thrive with STEM activities. Whether it be in t’s successes or failures, STEM activities push kids to expand their horizons, experiment, problem solve, and accept failure as a means to success. What is STEM? Science, technology, engineering, and math are key areas for building knowledge and shaping the future of young kids. Choose STEM activities early on and present STEM activities in a playful way. You will not only teach your kids amazing concepts, but you will build a love for exploring, discovering, learning, and creating!
