iPad in the TEACHING & LEARNING of Science
‘Discover new ways of learning science with iPad’
About the Session
The highly visual and directly interactive nature of the iPad opens a door to new and exciting ways of teaching science.
In this seminar, Andrew Souch, a secondary school science teacher with 22 years’ classroom experience leads a discovery of the many ways iPads can be used to enhance teaching and learning in the science classroom.
From astronomy to chemistry to biology and physics, there are some beautifully designed iPad apps that allow visualisation of science concepts and content, and the development of science skills that just a few years ago were difficult to present in meaningful and interesting ways. Many of the best free/cheap iPad science apps still have no equivalent available on a laptop computer.
As well as discovering and sharing great iPad science apps, participants will also learn how students can use their iPads to creatively produce and publish their own content. In addition, Andrew will demonstrate a range of tips and tricks for putting the iPad to productive use in the science classroom.
Participants will leave this workshop with new apps to explore with their science classes, new ideas for having their students use iPads to record their learning and publish it to authentic audiences and new insights into 21st century pedagogies that are supported by the iPad.
