Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full

Change the science student from passive to active by utilizing hands-on activities and iPad applications in the learning environment. Teaching science with hands-on activities improves understanding, provides greater ownership, motivation, excitement, and retention towards a student’s learning. Utilizing iPad technologies in a science class provides students with a wealth of science resources, colorful animations and visualizations in both two and three dimensional modeling, simulations, and experimental data collection applications. Utilizing this technology in a science class makes learning visual, active, resourceful, collaborative, and fun. Learn both hands-on activities and iPad applications used in teaching a chemistry class. Learn about a fifteen year evolution to the development of a fun and successful approach to learning and teaching chemistry. Hands-on activities in chemistry:  Matter and Energy  Measurement  Physical and Chemical Properties  Chemical Compounds  Chemical Reactions  Gas Properties  Solutions  Polymers iPad applications in chemistry:  Visual Periodic Tables  Physical Properties of Material  Atom, Ionic, and Molecular Modeling and Building  Chemical Reaction Simulations and Recordings  Chemistry Research and News Resources  Lab Data Collections and Simulations  Measurement Conversions and Calculations  Video Lessons  Note Taking and Presenting
