Amazing Science: Education and Learning Postings

Amazing Science: Education and Learning Postings | High School Chemistry | Scoop.it

Education in Science is a collection of resources for learners. Resources include videos and interactives that help scientific learners find out about the different fields of science and make connections to what they are learning in school, college or university.


Lessons are inquiry based and encourage exploration in life science, physical science, earth science and technology/innovation. We are at a point where almost everyone has a computer at home, each of them hooked up to enormous libraries where anyone can ask any question and be given answers.

Making The Most Of Limited Access To Learning Technology

Making The Most Of Limited Access To Learning Technology | High School Chemistry | Scoop.it

"As a high school science teacher, nothing frustrates me more than when I can’t check out the computer lab because it’s already full. Now, granted, I should probably sign up for it well in advance (and not the day before like I usually try to), but it is my firm belief that, as a dynamic educator, I should be able to put a capable device in front of my students on any given day."

Hey science teachers -- make it fun | TED.com

High school science teacher Tyler DeWitt was ecstatic about a lesson plan on bacteria (how cool!) -- and devastated when his students hated it. The problem was the textbook: it was impossible to understand.

I love TED talks so when I came across a science one, I was pretty excited. I feel like this refers to a lot of my classmates because they don't understand science but I love it.

Teachers are used to getting two kinds of free advice. First, everyone wants them to teach more of some topic. At the same time, they’re not allowed to teach less of something else, to free up the necessary time.

Detailed Photos of Atoms Obtained

Detailed Photos of Atoms Obtained | High School Chemistry | Scoop.it

This is the first time scientists have been able to see an atom's internal structure directly. Since the early 1980s, researchers have been able to map out a material's atomic structure in a mathematical sense, using imaging techniques.

 

Quantum mechanics states that an electron doesn't exist as a single point, but spreads around the nucleus in a cloud known as an orbital. The soft blue spheres and split clouds seen in the images show two arrangements of the electrons in their orbitals in a carbon atom. The structures verify illustrations seen in thousands of chemistry books because they match established quantum mechanical predictions.

Ginna Winstead's insight:

Very interesting! This just shows that science is always new. We are always finding new information.

Teach With Movies - Lesson Plans in History, English, Science for High School, Middle School, Elementary, Home School

Teach With Movies - Lesson Plans in History, English, Science for High School, Middle School, Elementary, Home School | High School Chemistry | Scoop.it

description by Internet Scout Project

 

"Once upon a time, it might have seemed a bit curious to screen feature films in the classroom. With today's technology, it is quite common, and the Teach With Movies site is a great resource for those looking to integrate moving pictures into their classroom environments. On this website, visitors will find Snippets & Shorts, Sciences, Movie Worksheets, and a substantial variety of other areas. The Snippets & Shorts area is a particular gem, as it offers suggestions for using a range of popular films to teach concepts in science, history, English, and other subjects. Visitors will also want to look at the Age area to review appropriate films for different ages. The Movie Worksheets area includes film study worksheets addressing several different themes, including Hero's Journey, Cinematic and Theatrical Elements, and Historical Fiction. While the site does not provide direct access to copyrighted film material, it is an excellent source of support materials for teachers who will have access to the suggested films through their local or school libraries."

Mantz’s Mission - Viral Notebook » QR coded Periodic Table of Elements published in Journal of Chemical Education | High School Chemistry | Scoop.it

Very interesting use of QR codes. The Journal of Chemical Education has recently created an audio site providing a QR code for each element in the Periodic Table. Be sure to visit the site and give the QR code for Periodic Table of Elements a scan.

As long as QR codes aren't outdated by the time I begin teaching, this will be a very cool way to engage students.
