  • Take 1 minute each to share what tools you currently use to teach science vocabulary?
  • The Horizon Report (Johnson, L., Levine, A., Smith, R., &amp; Stone, S., 2010) from the New Media Consortium, a group concerned with emerging technologies in education, pointed to five major trends in technology in schools for 2010 through 2015. They conclude that (a) technology is increasingly the means for student empowerment, (b) technology dramatically impacts work and those with technology skills will have an educative and workforce advantage, (c) innovation is gaining acclaim and the importance for student creativity is resurfacing, (d) in-time engagement and mentoring online is increasing, and (e) technology is transforming learning space to include the virtual world and will not always be dependent on a physical building. This last conclusion perhaps has the greatest implications for the future of formal education.
  • Many tools for the instruction and recall of science content terminology have been used, word walls, direct instruction, literature circles, and root word instruction (Coskie &amp; Davis 2009; Leno &amp; Doughtery; Miller, 2007; Kessler, 1999).
