Speed Sharing: Digital Lessons and Learning

Friday, March 24 • 10:40 AM - 11:40 AM

Georgia World Congress Center - B311

Show Details

Do your secondary learners crave new online experiences? Join these three secondary educators in sharing three digital tools for engaging students in science learning aimed at physical science and biology classrooms. Digital learning that's engaging, immersive AND relevant? Is it possible? Imagine your learners exploring virtual field trips about local research, places, and communities! Learn how you can use Infiniscope's Tour It to create customized immersive field trips with 360 degree spaces and media hotspots using just your computer and a smartphone. DIY Digital Lessons: Create Custom Online Lessons for Your Learners Create interactive digital lessons that students can explore anytime. From single lessons to multi-unit courses, you can build a library of digital content that can be used at scale, increasing accessibility. Embed assessments, collect data and guide your learners with customized real-time feedback. Engaging Online Science Students in Lab Experiences I will share my experiences transitioning from 18 years in the physical classroom to teaching science 100% online in 2022. I will describe how I invited students to collect data, sent lab materials home, conducted lab demos over zoom, engaged in videoconferences, and had students do "kitchen" labs.

Join high school educators sharing strategies for engaging students using social media, escape rooms, and assessment probes.

AP Biology Escape Room
Come Escape to Winter Break with me! Every year to review for the 1st semester final exam, my students complete a week long Escape Room (4 locks per day for 5 days). In this speed session, I will share an example of some of the components from my escape room so you can do it too.

Social Media Review
Meet your students where they are! Our students are always on their devices and on their social media platforms, so why not develop a review opportunity that incorporates that. In this speed session, you will see how I have developed a review resource through Instagram stories.

Using Phenomena to Explore Student Ideas and Misconceptions in Biology
Using probes for understanding, students decide if they agree or disagree with explanations - containing common misconceptions - for every day phenomena such as consuming more weight in food than you gain, and how drinking too much water can kill you.
