I want this to be a useful addition to your science education. You are going to make this what it is going to become and I hope you take it seriously. I do value your feedback and I want you to succeed. Use this blog forum as a way to post questions that may not have been asked during class, or comment on a topic already posted here.
What is the best way to post comments/questions on the Show Me's I plan to create for class? On the website? Here in the blog?
I have had this amazing app since last semester, maybe even last school year, but never found time to use it for my students. There was a common question last week from the physics homework on echoes in a canyon and determining the distance across a canyon. I thought this was a great opportunity to use the app so I took a picture of the question using the app and wrote an explanation while recording my audio explanation at the same time. Pretty cool!
Here's a link to their website:
Just a few random thoughts for those that will read this blog.
1) Technology is pretty cool.
2) It connects us all these days, no matter what you may think.
3) I get excited when an older generation embraces technology and experiences what it can do for their career, their students, and the general public.
4) Now that an older generation has embraced a technology I love, I need to embrace it as well and keep up with it- ie, this blog.
Now... what to do with this blog and how to incorporate it into my classroom. Will it be a reflection on the day? My feelings? My strategies? hmm...
What a way to share our thoughts, concerns, and praises in chemistry, biology, physics, teaching, and the world of science. This blog will be used to present topics about the above mentioned and provide help to any student in my chemistry classes on the content we are covering.
More to come as I develop this incredibly useful way to collaborate on information and what is spectacular and inspiring in this world.
Post in the comments with what you would like to see happen with this blog and how it can HELP and ENHANCE and INSPIRE you.
