JCE ChemEd Xchange provides a place for sharing information and opinions. Currently, articles, blogs and reading lists from ChemEd X contributors are listed below. We plan to include other items that the community wishes to share through their contributions to ChemEd X.
During our recent chemistry summer camp, we used some electrochemistry activities. We had some logistical issues, but they were an overal success!
Edmodo, Coursesites, Schoology…which digital learning platform is best for you? I’ve been searching for the right, free fit for me for the last three years. My journey has taken me from Edmodo to Coursesites to Schoology. I learned four valuable lessons about myself along the way that may help you make your own decision.
Anyone interested in learning more about Modeling Instruction in Chemistry can find out more about it by attending any of the several presentations or workshops at ChemEd 2015. Here is a list of sessions and a summary of each.
It was Oregonians only (lucky me!) for PBS’s limited release of The Mystery of Matter: Search for the Elements in fall 2014. A national premiere is now at hand—mark your calendar for your local station’s broadcast.

ChemEd X is excited to participate in the ChemEd 2015 conference that begins July 28 at Kennesaw State University in Georgia. We hope to see you at our booth (#18).
In just 2 weeks chemistry teachers from across the country will be heading to Kennesaw, Georgia! I am looking forward to being among my fellow teachers discussing labs, demonstrations, assessments, teaching methods, and so much more! Will you be there? If it is your first time I encourage you to be bold. Engage speakers and participants in discussion.
