Science Pilot
2011 - 2012 (FY12)

Goals
  • Create a seamless integration of technology into the existing curriculum
  • Use technology for a variety of tasks including data collection, data analysis, collaborative learning, assessments, and presentation of data/information
  • Maintain a record of all their work, with the goal of creating a digital portfolio.
  • Present and share their work both locally and publicly using existing platforms such as Google Sites


Results
  • Each term, students have performed at least 1 lab using computer data collection. The labs have also included use of software such as Logger Pro to analyze data.
  • Each term, students have taken at least 2 quizzes using the It’s Learning Interface.
  • Each term, students have accessed simulations on PhET for chemistry and physics
    virtual projects.
  • The Quarter 1 project utilized Google Presentation software for class presentations.
  • Quarter 1 Career projects were shared and presented using Google Docs.
  • Google Docs has been used to create "paperless" activities, where paper handouts are replaced with digital copies - where appropriate
  • Graphs have been submitted electronically - where appropriate
  • At the conclusion of Quarter 4, we plan to ask students to review the compilation of their digital assignments through the use of the It's Learning student portfolio
