Digital Journal for Collecting Notes and Observations from Experiments
Arduino Science Journal gives students access to a robust science toolbox for making observations and collecting sensor-based data as part of their experiments. Using sensors that are standard on many smartphones and mobile devices, students can collect real-time data as part of their hands-on science exploration. With the Science Journal app and their device’s built-in sensors, they can measure light, sound, acceleration, air pressure and more, or they can connect to external sensors using select Bluetooth-enabled Arduino devices to conduct experiments in the world around them. They can also create automated triggers for recording data and taking notes. The app records their progress as they are working and lets them hear the movement of their graphs, using sonification. Science Journal is free for iOS and Android devices.
Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in June.
If you had told me back in December of 2019 that every one of my teachers would be proficient at scheduling and managing Zoom meetings and posting electronic assignments multiple times throughout the day using Seesaw and Schoology, I would probably have called you in for a psychiatric evaluation.
