  1. 1. WoW Project<br />Interactive Technology in the Science Classroom<br />
  2. 2. Science and Technology<br />Have always gone hand and hand.<br />As technology increases so does science.<br />Telescope allowed scientist to see new planets.<br />Microscope allowed scientist to see bacteria.<br />SEM allows scientist to see viruses<br />
  3. 3. From the Lab to the Classroom<br />In science, some of the best learning comes from hands on experiences.<br />This being said, not all schools can afford expensive science equipment.<br />So what is the answer?<br />Using a cheaper more cost effective technology.<br />This technology is the COMPUTER.<br />
  4. 4. The Computer in the Classroom<br />Having a computer in the science classroom allows teachers to:<br />Do online experiments.<br />Virtual Dissections<br />Do scientific investigations.<br />Crime Scene or Accident scene investigation<br />Play instructional Videos.<br />Show examples of different physical events.<br />Use new technology that scientist all over the world are using.<br />Microsoft excel programs to create graphs<br />
  5. 5. Virtual Dissections<br />These save the school money. (No supplies to buy)<br />Allow all students to perform the task<br />Owl Pellet Dissection<br />Cow Eye Dissection<br />Sheep Brain Dissection<br />
  6. 6. Scientific Investigations<br />Are scientific based web quests.<br />Some send students on a search through different sites while others have all the information on them.<br />Sites can look like a video game.<br />Crime Scene Investigation<br />
  7. 7. Scientific Investigation<br />Some resources can allow students to perform activities that inspire them for the future.<br />These links allow students to perform surgery just like a surgeon would do.<br />Heart Surgery<br />Hip Replacement Surgery<br />Brain Surgery<br />
  8. 8. Instructional Videos<br />Videos can be played in the classroom to help show complicated ideas.<br />Also research that takes years to do can be shown in a short time frame in the classroom.<br />Static Charge Video<br />
  9. 9. Classroom Technology<br />Students can learn how to present their experimental findings through the use of:<br />PowerPoint<br />Microsoft Excel<br />Creating Graphs of their Data<br />
