Science is the greatest class in the school already, there’s no denying that. Getting to do labs, teaching kids about our world and how it works, not to mention engineering and chemistry experiences that get them hands on and doing learning in ways that other classrooms can only be jealous of! With this push to infuse technology into the classroom, we can sometimes feel like there’s not enough time in the day to add technology into our already exciting classrooms, but I hope through this workshop we can explore ways that technology can enhance and enrich our science classrooms that go beyond just using a digital notebook. In this workshop we’ll cover a range of topics including, video, virtual and augmented reality, online tools and resources, and G Suite tools, just to name a few. Feel free to bring your technology with you to participate fully in the day's activities.
