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 third 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
Data sets are a great way to get students to analyze scientific data. Online science courses can contain virtual labs that can be applied to real life applications. In the online world, students have the opportunity to create their own experiments, analyze data, and participate in meaningful learning.
