16 Edtech Integration Ideas for the Science Class

The September 15th #gafechat discussion was centered around 'Creating Digital Awareness.' I posed several questions to guide the conversation towards providing ways to integrate technology into the classroom during certain content areas. The conversation was not grade level specific, which allowed for a lot of great ideas to be shared that can be cross-grade level. The science question posed was:


Here are the ideas that people shared: The students could...

  1. use iPad to record process, sheets to track data and make graphs, Google documents to keep notes and slides to present results. (@tntechgal)
  2. work collaboratively on a Google document in partners/groups to come up with a hypothesis, use Google Forms to record lab results and analyze data from Spreadsheet (@LISDTechie)
  3. use Thinglink to summarize information gathered. (@rechargeedu)
  4. tweet their expected outcome, gather images and video to document the experiment, create a lab report with images, video, information and graphs. (@mbswoods)
  5. use video (iPads, phones, computers with webcam, etc.) to record summary of procedure and lab observations. Post videos to shared location and have students analyze each others to draw conclusions. (@LISDTechie)
  6. use iPad/webcam to document results from experiment and then create Google Slides to share findings. (@MLunoff)
  7. use Periscope to go through an experiment. (@SPFTech_Treglia)
  8. take photos, upload into Drive and create a Google slide showing the steps and explaining the process. (@educatoral)
  9. chart variables on shared Google Spreadsheet and experiment happens. (@jcalvert4)
  10. participate in a Google Hangout with an expert. Conduct experiment and then do a Google Hangout on Air to broadcast their experiment. (@ShakeUpLearning)
  11. participate in a Google Hangout with a college lab class or talk to scientist on hypotheses. (@MLunoff)
  12. use Google Sheets to track data; use Aurasma to interact with experiment or participate in virtual dissections. (@AlexaSchlechter)
  13. create movies to show understanding. (@danaritterbeck)
  14. use the BioDigital Human app to understand biology/physiology concepts. (@nsattler)
  15. create a stop motion movie on experiment. (@KAS1L)
  16. use Chrome Apps, Add-ons and Extensions to understand concepts. Check list here. (@rechargeedu)
