Gas Laws Virtual Lab

Virtual Labs are a way to not only do lab activities that you can't do in the classroom due to lack of funds or danger to students.  It also incorporates technology into daily learning.

Of course, research is one of the easiest ways to incorporate technology into your content area.  Students may be given guiding questions to research or choose their own topics.  The information they discover can be used to write a summary, an informational article, or an opinion piece.

by Pennye Rogers

Sometimes I have students build their own web quests over a specific topic following a rubric.  After they are complete, students trade and work through another's webquest.

In this interactive website, students can take any content from vocabulary work to over-arching concept and state it simply in a 4-section comic strip that can be shared or printed from the internet.  Students can choose characters, add backgrounds and props, and be creative in their explanations!  They have fun and don't realize they are learning.  It also can be completed in Spanish!

Teach with Web 2.0 has a list of many technology resources for your classroom. The term Web 2.0 usually refers to web applications that facilitate collaboration and information sharing on the web. The term "Read Write Web" is often used in interchangeably with Web 2.0. Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, blogs, wikis, video sharing sites such as YouTube, web applications such as GoogleDocs, mashups that allow users to combine different types of media into a new product, and cloud computing. There are hundreds of free applications on the web that allow users to communicate and collaborate. Some are much better than others and they are changing daily. Most of the applications listed have designated education accounts that are separate from the commercial product but some are accessible to anyone without teacher or staff moderators. Please evaluate the content that may be viewed by students before assigning them or using them with students. Some content may not be appropriate for all students.
