"Google Forms" can be a powerful tool to assist both virtual and face to face students in chemistry.
The author describes how he will format his chemistry labs including the use of PhET simulations in his remote classroom this fall.
With the school year quickly approaching, science teachers will at some point need to decide the role of laboratory investigation within their new learning environment. To help this decision-making process, the author focuses on two available options that he believes have the greatest potential for offering a legitimate approach toward authentic investigations in a digital environment.
Metacognition is a learner-focused evaluation of knowledge growth and an essential process for complete and lasting knowledge. Although virtual learning environments pose challenges for facilitating metacognitive activities, student-made videos are effective for increasing metacognition in online chemistry instruction.
Desmos offers an activity building feature that allows teachers to create and customize activities. The resource is applicable to a variety of science and chemistry topics and useful in whatever learning environment teachers find themselves in next school year.
While POGILⓇ Activities are designed to be completed synchronously in a collaborative team setting with the teacher present as the facilitator, there are ways to utilize the activities in an asynchronous online setting.
March came and went, and our whole world- individually and as an aggregate- was turned upside down with COVID-19 and its radically imposed isolation. Face-2-Face (F2F) instruction is now online and remote. Remote teaching. Remote learning. This post is based on the simple question- How does remote teaching change our ability to teach?
This book is filled with computer based labs that can be used in a range of classes from high school chemistry to an undergraduate course in physical chemistry. Bentham Science has generously provided free online access to the eBook through June 30, 2020.
Gameful learning isn’t about playing educational games; instead, it’s about creating a highly motivating and engaging learning environment by implementing proven game design elements into a course structure. With gamified learning, students are challenged and motivated to construct knowledge that goes far beyond the basics of an educational game.
With millions of teachers and students facing remote-learning because of COVID-19, a global experiment may be a great way to engage students at home.
