One-Day of Professional Learning Dedicated to Foster Active Learning Throughout the Learning Cycle

Teachers know that students are engaged by active learning… but creating active learning environments and opportunities take time, expertise, equipment, and supplies. It is challenging or impossible to do as often as we would like.

Let’s explore interesting ways to engage students with MORE active learning and “doing science” throughout the learning cycle, without these constraints or added burden.

Meet Your Hosts

Pivot Interactives co-founders began working in 2012 in their own classrooms develops direct measurement videos to allow them & their students to break out of the constraints of the classroom. Since then the platform has improved, the team has grown, and the content has expanded, but the commitment to revolutionizing science education is unchanged. At the Active Learning Symposium, you’ll get a chance to learn from:

Peter Bohacek


With a background in computer engineering and 15-year industry career, Peter moved to physics teaching for 20 years (and won the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching). Peter began using interactive video with his own students in 2010. The results were so promising, he was compelled to continue to explore how to expand the capability of interactive video.

Eric Friberg


Eric's experience as a teacher, and education visionary combine to enable him to guide our growing team of content writers and video developers. Eric is a winner of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching (PAEMST), and numerous other awards. Teachers and students who use Pivot Interactives benefit from Eric's experience and vision.
