Using Keynote for Digital Lab Activities in a Science Classroom | Lessons |  iPAD SCIENCE | Education | Scoop.it

"One of my favorite units in the Earth Science curriculum is Rocks and Minerals. Students have a real opportunity to get their hands dirty while examining and identifying samples. In the past, the kids have carried clipboards with data tables around the room, checking out various rock and mineral samples, while trying to figure out what exactly they were looking at. At the end of the lesson, I was left with a list of sample names from each student, which I would count as evidence of their lab work. This just didn’t seem to cut it. So this year, I had students bring their iPads around with them. Their task was to, not only identify the samples, but create Keynote slides on each one, including a photo (which they took themselves), the main characteristics of the sample, and the name of the rock or mineral."

would like to start using technology in my science classrooms....how do you over come teh diversity of decive capabilities if you dont have access to an ipad

We try our best to start all of our technology integration discussions with our teachers right where they are...their learning goals. If we are true to our learning goals then we can let our technology resources provide opportunities to enhance the learning. The SAMR scale is ideal for discussing that effect.

The Simple Power of a Screenshot

The Simple Power of a Screenshot | Education | Scoop.it

"Sometimes it's the little things that can prove to be powerful. The quick and easy action of taking a screenshot can transform how you use technology in your classroom. A screenshot is simply a picture of what is on the screen of your device. On the iPad, users press the home button and power button at the same time, and a snapshot of the screen is sent directly to the Camera Roll. Taking a screenshot is the perfect way to capture student work on mobile devices."

I have my students take screen shots of their completed tech assignments, paste them into Word, and submit them. Plus I add screen shots to all of my assignment instructions and add screen shots to my weekly overview of why we're doing an assignment (I have to make sure they know that their assignment relates to the real world).
