Implement ISTE student standards in a technology rich science classroom. Learn how to use tools such as probes (temperature and pH), USB microscope cameras, and a remote multi sensor device called Pocket Lab, which measures acceleration, angular velocity and more. All tools are compatible with multiple platforms, including chromebooks.
|Audience:||Coaches, Teachers, Technology coordinators/facilitators|

|Subject area:||STEM/STEAM, Science|
|ISTE Standards:||For Students:
Allow students to explore science curriculum in real time with digital tools. Provide students with digital data acquisition skills in varied environments to prepare them for 21st century workforce. For example, acquire continuous temperature measurements that are sent to a spreadsheet during an experiment for later analysis. Also, capture digital images and video of specimens viewed through a microscope for studying even after the experience is completed.
Demonstrate how technology can enhance science instruction with integration of real time data acquisition with various web based tools and digital probes. Rethink how we gather data in a science classroom to provide students with methods that are used in a modern lab setting.
We will show participants how you can combine traditional lab techniques with digital methods to help engage students and also visualize data trends. The tools can assist students in interacting with the data and allows them to acquire more data with greater accuracy, as well as quickly be able to visualize trends and anomalies. The tools also enable students to collect data that they would otherwise not be capable of collecting accurately with traditional classroom tools, such as measuring angular velocity and altitude of a remote controlled car on a looped track.
