Using Tablets in the Science Classroom
Why take this course? More and more Districts are implementing 1:1 digital initiatives in their schools. Science teachers are often overlooked in the implementation of these programs. This workshop will focus on the effective use of tablet devices in the science classroom. Content includes use of virtual or online laboratory activities, support for online science notebooks, free or low cost apps (iOS and Android) to support the science program, and supporting student creation of digital or electronic student work products using free or low cost applications like Evernote, iMovie, Penultimate, and more.
Participants will be provided with access to our online libraries of student work products, online laboratories, and more, and will have extensive opportunity to practice with the app library and other workshop tools in real time. This workshop is suitable for middle level teachers.
