BYOD in action...

As we all know, students love smart phones! Why not take advantage of the content creation apps available on smart phones to get students to create informative short science videos they can upload onto Instagram?
Every day in your classroom students gain new insights and in doing so create their own interpretation of how the world works, this is a fantastic opportunity for students to use their devices as a creative outlet to share their knowledge in a medium they love.

Create a education blog to engage students and be proud of!

Why not have your students create a blog about their science experiments and subsequent discoveries in a safe site you control! Students love to hear from other students. They like to share stories, behind-the-scenes video, funny anecdotes and above all they love to have ownership over what they are doing in the classroom. We look at not only the benefits but also the easy steps you can take to get your students involved!

Science in 6.5 seconds! The value of Vine for teaching

Written by Ben Newsome on March 24th, 2016.      0 comments

Vine can be valuable for teaching science!

Vine is quite an interesting social media app that has become massively popular with people wanting to see a series of extremely small videos. How extremely small you say? At the time of writing this post Vine allows videos of just over 6.5 seconds in length (!). 

So, what could you possibly do with that time frame?
We have a look at how science teachers could really be taking advantage of this nifty app... and create more engagement in science lessons to boot.
