I was recently reading the November/December 2020 issue of “Science Scope” a publication for middle school teachers from the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read “The Online Teacher“ column written by Denise Wright. Her article was entitled “Conducting Science Labs in a Virtual World.”
This is the first in a three-part series on the three strategies for conducting science labs in the virtual world.
Part 1 — Virtual Simulations
Part 2 — Science at Home
Part 3 — Use of Data Sets
Online science labs can be rich experiences that students enjoy. Teachers can include labs in online learning by using virtual simulations that include written directions, a screencast explaining directions, and questions for discussion.
