5 Earth Science Tools that Support NGSS
Tuesday October 27, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Presented by Barbara Huth, Teacher, Mooresville Senior High School and National Board Certified Science Teacher
Hosted by Common Sense Education
Are you searching for quality edtech tools that can be used to demonstrate student mastery of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)? In this recorded webinar, you’ll learn practical classroom applications of five top-rated digital tools: National Geographic Education, Google Earth, PBS Learning Media, KQED Do Now, and Nova Labs. Many of these tools embody the Science and Engineering Practices of NGSS, and all of the tools align with the disciplinary core ideas. Examples shown include:
- Designing robots to clean up the great Pacific Garbage Patch
- Exploring earthquake data to map out plate boundaries
- Solving energy problems in different parts of the United States
Barbara Huth, high school science teacher, National Board Certified Science Teacher, and Graphite Certified Educator & Mentor, spoke about how she’s using these tools, and leave with ideas for your own classroom. Barbara also fielded questions from attendees during this previously live, interactive event. This recorded webinar will benefit middle or high school teachers as well as science coaches that teach earth/environmental science or general science.
