Amazing Science: Education and Learning Postings

Amazing Science: Education and Learning Postings | Middle School Science | 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.

"The ease-of-use and engagement factor of an iPad can really liven up a lesson. Combine that with an apps’ ability to simulate real-world conditions, such as chemical reactions, and you have a tool that is both safe and fun for your students.

High school science teacher Kimette Witt curates this collection of her favorite chemistry, physical science, and general science iPad apps. And the best part – they are all FREE! A teacher’s favorite price!"

"There is nothing "wrong" with focusing on the solution of a math problem. But we found that we shared a concern about the truly haphazard approaches among students we often witness. One colleague referred to this as "mashing numbers.""

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 | Middle School Science | 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."
