  • I liked the content of the slides - we certainly have a 21st Century Mobile Technology Paradigm Shift. The Impact of Mobile Devices on RE Methods and Tools must be revised. As you stated - with well done online labs - an interactive (follow me on the first example) curriculum would really cause students to think past the textbook and use their creativity. Thanks for your post - Dr. Kutscher.

Use of Mobile Technologies in Science Education

  1. 1. Mobile Technologies in Science Education Eric Demoncheaux, PhD
  2. 2. Challenges • Overcoming students' overwhelming concern for their image, social status, after school activities, etc. • Getting students to apply what they have learnt. • Finding a way to get students to apply what they learn, and to recognize how to apply the lessons.
  3. 3. Preconceptions and Misconceptions • Science has a kind of built-in curiosity. • Tackling the misconceptions and preconceptions leads to student self-correction. • Install in them the desire to learn more.
  4. 4. Teach students to think beyond the text • "Teaching Science" means getting students to "think". • Memorization is necessary to learn the fundamentals. • To really learn science, and to master it, requires the development of critical thinking skills.
  5. 5. Memorisation of facts • Concentrate on memorizing facts. • Teach students how to use those facts.
  6. 6. You can't look everything up • You can't put information to good use if you don’t know how. • Students need to be able to explain things clearly and completely and accurately to others, in speech and on paper.
  7. 7. You can lead a horse to water … • Create a sense of purpose, of direction and future before you teach. • You have to have a class of students that have some willingness to learn, some desire to achieve, however slight.
  8. 8. Can technology help? • Many schools lack adequate facilities for lab work. • Science could be “done” online with the help of pre-recorded real experiments and interactive data collection. • Online labs allow to "flip" the science lab. • Online labs may prove to be cheaper than real labs too.
  9. 9. Mobile Learning
  10. 10. Ipads • http://www2.hull.ac.uk/ifl/ipadresearchinsch ools.aspx
  11. 11. Ipads
  12. 12. Ipads
  13. 13. iPads in the classroom • Another perspective:
  14. 14. Online resources • Lots of online resources for Chemistry - related teaching here: http://www.rsc.org/learn-chemistry • The Royal Society of Chemistry has also released a free app for ipads, iphones and android phones called Elements of Nutrition.
  15. 15. Mobile learning • Amplify, Spongelab, Edmodo and Educade. • Edmodo allows locking of the ipads so that students can’t misuse them during lessons. • Nearpod allows to make interactive presentations.
  16. 16. iPads apps for STEM Education • https://edshelf.com/search This link takes you to the edshelf “tools” where collections can be built based on subject, age of learners, device platform. • http://www.onlineuniversities.com/blog/2012 /05/50-best-ipad-apps-for-stem-education/
  17. 17. ‘Exploriments' • ‘Exploriments' has a range of apps for your high school classes: http://www.exploriments.com/index.htm
  18. 18. File sharing • Notability is an app which may be used for worksheets and submitting work for electronic assessment.
  19. 19. More apps … Biology - Protozoan - Might microbes - colour test - motion pics - google earth -science 360 Chemistry - Lab assisstant -Mahjong chem - chemical -chemical by design - circular motion -Mol.Wt.Finder -formulas lite -Molarity - molecules - chemistry -Atoms in motion - Elements -Atoms HD -sMole Builder - Lewis Dots -Nova elements -Salts - The elements Astronomy - GoSkyWatchP -NASA -NASA Viz -Nasa science - Starwalk - Hubble site - Solar walk - earth viewer - Saturn Anatomy - 3D brain - Essential Skeleton - 3D cardiovascular system -3D Digestive system Physics -E fields -Fourier Touch -Angry birds -Projectile -string
  20. 20. Apps for STEM • CGP has a couple of good apps for revision. One version is free. • iCell is great for discovery of cell structures. • Virtual dissections are fun as each student can get involved. • Students can also make up their own word searches on puzzle-maker.
  21. 21. iPADS and its camera functions • StoMo, free stop motion.
  22. 22. More apps • Biology - Gene Screen • Chemistry - Organic 3D, MPSE (Best free Periodic table app) • Teaching - Explain Everything, Lino
  23. 23. Avoiding the technology is impossible • iPads in the classroom allow us to move away from the 'sage on the stage' and can enhance the learning for everyone. • Yet, so many apps are 'nice to haves', but not 'must haves'.
  24. 24. Support the learning of others • Taking away i-Pads, or giving them to students to use, does not make good learners. • Good learners are developed by: – an atmosphere that values learning – a curriculum that provides challenges that can be satisfied by hard work and commitment.
