GDL: Plant Cells is an amazing tool to help begin talking about plants and why they are so important to us. It is an interactive laboratory that allows students to alter the environment around a plant, zoom in and out of the major plant cell organelles, and use what they learn to figure out how to make the dying plant survive and thrive. The software is divided into three modules allowing you to learn from the perspective of the mitochondria, chloroplast or nucleus, while at the same time, reinforcing the "Genomic" concept that organelles are linked and dependant on each other. GDL plant cells is great for everyone, but the accompanying teaching assets are geared for students grades 7 to 12.

We are committed to helping advance technology in education. So, to help bring GDL into classrooms and your home, we’re providing a detailed approach on how to integrate GDL with your current teaching approach, including: detailed lesson plans, tools for user evaluation, quizzes and supplemental teaching resources, coding for current Ontario curriculum, and relevance to Canadian, United Sates & International educational standards.
