Learning Science by Doing Science: March 29th Webinar
Published:March 27, 2012
Learning Science by Doing Science facilitated by Phil Brookhouse
Weekly Thursday Webinar
March 29, 2012
3:15pm and 7:15pm
Looking at the Conceptual Framework for New Science Standards K-12, one of the major changes we see is how Scientific and Engineering practices form a third of Standards platform, along with Core Principles and Crosscutting Concepts. So we are left with the question – How can technology support the practice of science?
There is a plethora of activities and “games” designed to help students learn science, but how can a teacher decide which ones are appropriate and aligned with standards and the curriculum? This session is designed to explore some of the best. From the apps on the MLTI device (ME Explorer, Molecular Workbench, GeniQuest, and NetLogo) to models and simulations on the web, participants will be able to see what could best apply to their classrooms, and then be released to explore even further on their own. Then they will be able to establish their own criteria for choosing, provide a context, and think about the curricular implications.
