Pivot Interactives’ cloud-based web app can be accessed 24/7 using any web-connected device, including Chromebook and iPad®. The videos incorporate time-lapse, slow-motion, multi-camera-angle, and drone videography and cover real events, such as a sprinting Olympian, a rocket launch, and a roller coaster in motion. The Interactives allow students to vary experimental parameters, such as the mass of the object or the frequency of a wave, by choosing one of a set of many recordings of the same experiment. Students can also take measurements using embedded rulers, protractors, and stopwatches, and then graph that data within the online app.
