MIT BLOSSOMS and Peking University’s Graduate School of Education teamed up to offer 32 Mandarin-language interactive BLOSSOMS STEM video lessons to high school students and educators in China who were at home due to the virus and eager to learn. The videos could be accessed via WeChat, a popular messaging app in China.
“Watching BLOSSOMS lessons is like playing video games that many boys like. It arouses your interest and desire for challenges.”
“BLOSSOMS lessons focus on student’s critical thinking. It cultivates the learner’s active participation.
“BLOSSOMS lessons demonstrate to us teachers how to apply problem-based learning approach in our own class.”
“Comparing to the lecture-based method that we normally use in China, BLOSSOMS are definitely more attractive to students. It helps cultivate them into active learners.”
