Free Technology for Teachers: Ten Good Video Sources for Science Students and Teachers

Free Technology for Teachers: Ten Good Video Sources for Science Students and Teachers | Adventures in Biology | Scoop.it

"One of the great things about teaching today is the wealth of educational videos that are available on the web. No longer do we have to flip through catalogs, order a VHS cassette, wait for it to arrive, and hope that it is as good as the catalog made it sound. Now we can quickly access and screen educational videos. In fact, there is so much available that the challenge is sifting through it all."

Richard Byrne has put together a great list of 10 websites that provide excellent videos for science. Sites include:

* The Spangler Effect from Steve Spangler Science (demonstrations of science experiments)

* Gooru - a website that has been mentioned in this Scoop.it. "Gooru is a service that aims to provide teachers and students with an extensive collection of videos, interactive displays, documents, diagrams, and quizzes for learning about topics in math and science." If you have not taken the opportunity to check out Gooru it is worth your time.

* MIT Tech TV which has thousands of videos.

More information on these sites and seven additional sites is available in the post!

Using Science Fiction to Understand Biological Concepts

Using Science Fiction to Understand Biological Concepts | Adventures in Biology | Scoop.it

Increasingly, teachers wish to integrate disciplines such as science, social issues, and literature. Science fiction appeals to many students who might otherwise struggle with literature. The following is a resource list of science fiction short stories and novels that might be used either as an interdisciplinary teaching unit for teachers, an enrichment exercise in your biology course. Topics that might arise include: genetics, cloning, food in the future, medicine in the future, eugenics, and restoring extinct species.

High School Biology in Your Home: A Unique Approach to Teaching ...

High School Biology in Your Home: A Unique Approach to Teaching ... | Adventures in Biology | Scoop.it
Back when I first started homeschooling, I had this vague idea that once I hit on what worked with one child, I could just reuse the exact same materials in.
Tiffany Dean's insight:

There is diversity in not only the home among children, but in the classroom, so different approaches have to be taken to reach out to interest all children in science.
