Day 2 @ 11:00

Roundtable 19: How to quickly and easily teach scientific thinking and data literacy using discovery based learning

  • We will discuss how students can be empowered in scientific discovery through mobile devices, making learning intuitive
  • You will have an opportunity to test various mobile games and see how they collect and visualise data
  • You will leave with worksheets and manuals alligned to the NSW Syllabus and Australian Curriculum that allow you to run these lessons in your classroom

Day 2 @ 15:30

Using mobile devices to turn students into scientists in less than 10 minutes!

  • Students are glued to their mobile devices - so rather than taking their phones away, I discuss ways that mobile phones can be incorporated into learning to engage students.
  • I will demonstrate how technology can be used to speed up science in the classroom so teachers can spend more time helping students become data literate.
  • You will leave with an understanding of how technology can be used to teach an integrated curriculum and how it can be used to improve social interactions in the classroom and provide you with more time with your students.
