This engaging book shows you how to tap into the power of these new technologies to motivate students and support and enhance your existing curricula. Discover ways to use digital cameras, online databases and interactive simulation software to promote the kind of conceptual understanding and inquiry that drives real-world science. The 15 units on topics such as cell division, virtual dissection, earthquake modelling and the Doppler effect provide teachers with dozens of activities and lesson extensions in all of the major secondary school science areas. The units are introduced by essays that discuss project-based learning strategies, the creation of assessment rubrics and general guidelines for integrating technology in science instruction. Transform Your Science Classroom with Technology All units are keyed to the NETS. S Standards. Interdisciplinary links, teaching tips, lesson extenders and assessment guidelines are provided for each unit. Each unit includes a comprehensive listing of online and print resources for background reading and further exploration.
