This New Year brings an exciting, new LearningProduct™ to Middle-Schools across America. The release date is scheduled for January 27, 2020!

PrintMore young learners need to be 1Up on the dangers of vaping. MOAI/RE@L provide those resources, funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH).

Using this unique, new learning tool, students will explore the perils of vaping in real-world simulations where students explore, choose and learn as they go.

With the new Teacher Guide™ and the upcoming resources in RE@L’s new Portal-Gate™, teachers will be able to better assist students in their explorations, demonstrations and understandings.

Here’s what our CEO, Paul Gullickson, had to say about this revolutionary, new  RE@L TeacherGuide™ for teachers:

     RE@L Spark Logo Rev1Fabulous Teacher Guide!  I have never, in all of my years in K-12 Education have seen anything like this!”

     “The fact that we have also provided the links to the National Health Education Standards is critical.  We are setting the Gold Standard!”

Dale LaFrenz, our RE@L Chairman, and Paul ought to know….their RE@L leadership encompasses EdTech standards since these critical standards began back in their MECC leadership days.

“If I were teaching this, my top 3 reactions to reading through the new Guide:

  • The length of the guide is perfect; teachers are able to use in a reasonable amount of time, also able to comprehend first go around and zone in on their actual lesson plan.

  • Our RE@L Guide Content is not over-whelming with to much detailed information; moreover it’s well written, easy to follow and track the Guide’s format layout.

  • Resources- provide many options to learn, teach and deliver content.”

Here’s the rest of the new RE@LGuide story:

Don-R2Don Rawitsch, RE@L’s Executive Vice President of Product Development and RE@L STEM Investigations, was the leader of the design team that brought 1Up on Vaping to market.

Some years back, as a member of the MECC Team, along with Dale LaFrenz and Paul Gullickson, MECC’s leadership team, Don brought Oregon Trail™ to the K12 world.

We at RE@L believe that 1Up On Vaping will bring a new, virtual trail through the dangers of today’s new threats of addiction to vaping and nicotine.

Don and his team are also building a new RE@L Portal-Gate to present these new teaching and learning resources.
