Galileo K-12 Online contains a vast body of instructional resources in reading/language arts, mathematics, and science in the form of Instructional Dialogs. Galileo Instructional Dialogs are customized, interactive, online instructional lessons and assignments that are aligned to standards and designed to provide practice and instruction to increase standards mastery. Each Dialog is a series of slides that can be used as a teacher-led lesson for the entire class or as an independent assignment used by a student or group of students. Dialogs are an excellent way to provide students with experience with technology-enhanced forms of assessment similar to those encountered on statewide assessments. Teachers have access to over a thousand Instructional Dialogs in Galileo developed by ATI’s experienced Assessment and Instructional Design team.
Additionally, Instructional Dialogs are an excellent time-saving resource for teachers. In Galileo, teachers can schedule existing Dialogs, build their own Dialogs, and even modify existing Dialogs to tailor them to their goals and students' needs. Dialogs built by one teacher can be shared with other teachers through Galileo K-12 Online. Dialogs can be assigned to individual students, entire classes, or district-wide. The flexible nature of Instructional Dialogs enables teachers to use them as a presentation-style lesson in front of the entire class, as a student-focused task in a lab or one-to-one computer resourced classroom, or even as an assignment outside of class for students with Internet access.
