Districts that have adopted Amplify Science K–5 may opt to purchase an enhanced digital experience of the program called Interactive Classroom. Interactive Classroom licenses are available for K–5 teachers and students, and they offer a number of benefits.
It is important to know if you have Interactive Classroom because a number of program features work differently in (or are unique to) this experience. Here’s how to tell if you and your students have access to Interactive Classroom.
Determining if you have a teacher Interactive Classroom license
After logging into the curriculum, navigate to any lesson in the curriculum. Upon choosing a lesson from the Unit Overview page, you’ll land on the Lesson Brief. This is where it will become clear if you have Interactive Classroom!
Do you see a “teach” button? Congratulations, you have Interactive Classroom!
Don’t see that “Teach” button? You do not have Interactive Classroom, but don’t worry, you still have access to great instructional supports and interactive apps!
Determining if your students have Interactive Classroom licenses
Teachers may have access to Interactive Classroom without their students having licenses. In this case, teachers get to use the streamlined, slides-based experience of Interactive Classroom, but their students mostly work offline and do not have individual accounts. If their students do have Interactive Classroom licenses, though, additional tools become available to the teacher, like real-time work review, assigning lessons, and having the flexibility to have students interact with lesson content digitally (more information here).
If you’ve confirmed that you have Interactive Classroom (see above), you can easily check to see if your students also have it. Navigate to a Lesson Brief again and, this time, look to see whether there is also a button labeled “Assign.” If so, your students have Interactive Classroom licenses.
