Technology in the science classroom

  1. 1. Applying Technology in theScience Classroom by: Shelly Solis
  2. 2. Applying technology in the classroom does several things to student learning:1. It increases interest even in rote tasks;2. it provides purpose for learning3. it can attach meaning to an ongoing lesson
  3. 3. Applying technology in theclassroom does several thingsto student learning:(continued)4. it provides opportunities to perceive knowledge as being related, not isolated bits5. it allows for individual student differences6. it can affect students’ attitudes toward learning.”
  4. 4. Purpose of TechnologyTechnology should enhance learning. There is no value in just having access to it but more important how it is used.
  5. 5. Types of Technology touse:Internet Websites and ProjectsDigital CamerasProbesHand-held Devices (i.e. Tablets)Software
  6. 6. Websites that are available WebQuests are inquiry-oriented activities that use mostly online resources. A selection of exemplary WebQuests can be found at http://webquest.sdsu.edu/matrix.html. Scroll down for the science ones. Alfys Thematic Units - Look at the science section at http://www.alfy.com/teachers/teach/thematic_units/index.asp Education-Now! at http://www.education- now.com/Science/index.htm features technology resources for Adventist Education and links to sites that correlate to the Adventist grades 5-8 science textbooks: Discover Gods Creation, Explore Gods Creation, etc. BrainPop.com: This site features short animations or movies that explain many science, biology and technology subjects and corresponds to the National Science Education Standards for grades 5-8. Also included are interactive quizzes, experiments, printable activity pages, and more. Limited access is free, and you may view three movies/day for free. Unlimited access is available for a fee.
  7. 7. Websites that are available(Cont’d) HowStuffWorks.com: http://express.howstuffworks.com/. Visit the Teachers Corner for lesson plans, activities, and more. Interactive Physics and Math includes illustrations that can be manipulated, such as a bouncing ball with an angled floor, a pendulum, diffraction, refraction, oscillation and more at http://www.lightlink.com/sergey/java/ GRIN - Great Images in NASA is a searchable database containing hundreds of photos from scientific to historical that you can use in projects, reports, presentations, etc.: http://grin.hq.nasa.gov/index.html Try Virtual Frog Dissection at http://www- itg.lbl.gov/vfrog/dissect.html. Water Science for Schools from the U.S. Geological Survey at http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/index.html.

Websites that are available(Cont’d)  Exploring Planets in the Classroom: 25 K-12 hands-on activities from NASA at http://www.spacegrant.hawaii.edu/class_acts/index.html.  Over 250 science WebQuests created by other teachers are listed here in alphabetical order by title at http://www.teach- nology.com/teachers/lesson_plans/computing/web_quests/science/  Earth Science links at http://www.remc11.k12.mi.us/bcisd/classres/escience.htm  Life Science links at http://www.remc11.k12.mi.us/bcisd/classres/lscience.htm  Physical Science links at http://www.remc11.k12.mi.us/bcisd/classres/pscience.htm  Creating Rubrics: If you use rubrics to assess lab reports, group projects and more, be sure to visit RubiStar at http://rubistar.4teachers.org/. This free site is supported by the US Department of Education.
  9. 9. Results from Using TechnologyTechnology allows teachers and students to augment the curriculum with current information and timely study of real-world events, thus making learning more dynamic, engaging, and valuable.Studies have shown that students who used simulations, microcomputer-based laboratories, and video to connect science instruction to real-world problems outperformed students who used traditional instructional methods alone.
