In this edWebinar, Heidi Brennan, curriculum and training specialist with PASCO and former science specialist with the Florida State Department of Education, models how we can use wireless sensors to investigate phenomena.
Using phenomena, students can formulate scientific ideas using observations. Digital media is a great platform in which to deliver phenomena to students. In this edWebinar, we use a time lapse video of photosynthesis as seen from space to drive a hands-on lesson using a carbon dioxide sensor to facilitate an understanding of the relationship between carbon dioxide, respiration, and photosynthesis in plants.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school teachers, school and district leaders.
