Quick Overview

This engaging addition to ISTE’s NETS•S Curriculum Series shows you how to move instruction away from rote memorisation of facts and cookbook-style “experiments”. The technology-infused lessons in this volume promote the kind of conceptual understanding and inquiry that drives real-world science. Drawing on extensive experience revolutionising their own science classrooms, the authors show teachers how to employ computer simulation and visualisation tools to promote student learning. Sample topics include cell division, virtual dissection, earthquake modelling, and the Doppler Effect.

New computer-based technologies have revolutionized scientific research in recent years, yet computers remain curiously underutilised in many science classrooms. 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.
