Presentation Transcript

  1. Enhancing science with technology Dr. Mary Browning Zurich International School

  2. My background • B.Sc. In Chemistry from Bristol University, England • Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of Victoria, Canada • Taught A-level Chemistry in Zimbabwe • Taught Middle School Science at: • Singapore American School • Antwerp International School • Shanghai American School • Zurich International School

  3. Zurich International School • Large International School • 1400 students from K-12 • 1200 computers (includes admin/office) • 1-to-1 at MS and US (tablets) • 1-to-1 started 2 ½ years ago • 2:1 at LS Netbooks • Grade’s 8-12 take tablets home (started for grade 8 this January)

  4. My learning path 2 ½ year ago I had never used a lap top Zurich – smartboards and tablets • The school has excellent IT support

  5. My philosophy • Hands-on science remains the most important part of my science class. • How can technology make the learning better, easier, and more interesting?

  6. Plan for the session • 1. Use of onenote program • 2. Using probes for experimental work • 3. Student blogs • 4. Teacher blog

  7. Developing Learning Material in One Note & Teacher Collaboration

  8. Advantages of OneNote with a 1-1 program • 1. Students can easily see the outline of the unit (chapter headings) • 2. Very easy to use and fast (does not need internet) • 3. Work saves automatically • 4. Can scan hard copies into it. • 5. Goes well with the tablet and pen (but not necessary to have the pen). • 6. Saves paper

  9. Advantages of OneNote without a 1-to-1 program • Great organizational tool for teachers • Can use it to share information with students if you have a beamer/smartboard • I can be synced with the other science teacher so we can easily share new resources

  10. Video of students using OneNote • http://www.youtube.com/user/ZISMS#p/u/4/5LJnncO8dW0

  11. Using probes in Science

  12. Using probes to measure carbon dioxide from burning gasoline

  13. Measuring carbon dioxide in the air

  14. Measuring carbon dioxide from burning methane

  15. Data analysis

  16. EKG probe as a station

  17. Advantages and Disadvantages of Probes • Broadens the range of experiments that can be done in the lab • They can be expensive • If no 1-to-1 program or lack of funds you can still use one probe as a station

  18. Price of probes • Carbon dioxide probe: • US $250 • International $318 • Voltage probe: • US $16 • Go Link: • US $78

  19. Probe demonstration

  20. USING STUDENT BLOGS for BETTER CONNECTIONS

  21. Thermal solar power - blog Student Example Blog

  22. Thermal solar panel - blog

  23. Thermal solar panel - blog

  24. Hydroelectric power project - blog Example of Student Blog

  25. Wind turbine - blog Example of Student Blog

  26. Wind turbine - blog

  27. Photovoltaic cells - blog Example of Student Blog

  28. Advantages of student blogs • Work can easily be shared with other students, teachers, and also parents • Alternative to science fair

  29. TEACHER BLOG My Teacher Blog

  30. Teacher Blog

  31. ADVANTAGES OF A TEACHER BLOG • 1. If a student is absent then the experimental work and concepts can be more easily understood by watching a teacher prepared video. • 2. The work necessary to be completed is posted there for that week. • 3. Websites which enhance the curriculum can very easily be posted. • 4. Photos can be posted. • 5. Fewer emails sent to absent students. • 6. The blog is free and, with a flipshare camera and a youtube account, videos can be easily made and shared.

  32. Flipshare video camera

  33. Grade 8 teachers! • Grade 8 students teaching the grade 5 students about climate change

  34. Technology at Zurich International School • Students showing technology at the school

  35. Resources and feedback • http://drbrowningscience.wordpress.com/ • Page for ECIS conference • One Note resources available • PowerPoint with video and blog links are posted • Please complete feedback of this session as a comment on that page.

  36. Any questions? • OneNote program? • Use of Probes? • Student blogs? • Teacher blogs?
