Ask, Explore, Write! Moving Inquiry-Driven Science into Virtual Spaces Most appropriate for: Grades 3-12 science teachers
August 5 - 7 | 9AM - 12:15PM | 3 instructional hours; with 15 min break
Instructors: Troy Hicks, Jeremy Hyler, Wiline Pangle, Jeremy Winsor
Participants Will Need: Device with Reliable Internet Access
As we consider the possibilities for inquiry-driven science learning in virtual spaces, join us for three half-days of professional learning. Each day, we will gather in Zoom and adapt model-based science instruction to virtual spaces. In addition to using collaboration tools such as Google Jamboard for whiteboard modeling, Hyperdocs and Google Workbench to design asynchronous lessons, and Padlet to curate resources for students, we will also engage in deeper exploration of Google Expeditions for virtual field trips, Infogram and Piktochart for creating infographics, and the data visualization site EarthTime.org to consider ways that students can explore changes in the environment over time. Session resources will be collected in a shared Google Site and Google Drive folder, enabling participants to use them in their own instruction. Registration will be available until July 29, 2020.
