Discover how tech tools and strategies can improve teaching and learning in your science classroom.
Science is everywhere, and now more than ever, students and teachers are able to access high-quality science resources, lessons, and support with just a few clicks of a button. Thanks to technology, students have access to videos of science phenomena as well as the ability to do or create a virtual lab or simulation without needing all the expensive (and sometimes unsafe) materials. They can even go on virtual field trips and talk with real-life scientists online. Students can code their own applications, create their own video games, or even become citizen scientists who collect and report data and become part of a real collaborative project with professional scientists. Teachers have access to numerous high-quality resources, curriculum, and instructional videos that make it easier than ever to integrate and teach science in their classrooms while opening up a window to the outside world.
In this collection, we explore tools and strategies that will help you effectively integrate technology into your science classroom. As you review these resources, consider how digital tools and strategies can not only improve your students’ academic achievement but also improve engagement, feedback, authentic application opportunities, and motivation.
