Transcript of Building the 21st Century Science Classroom

iCell gives you an interactive, 3D view inside a cell. You can study cell structures using a dynamic and realistic virtual model. Included are examples of three types of cells: animal, plant, and bacteria. For each type of cell, you have the option of reading information about the structures of the cell at a Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced level. The app is easily navigable and allows you to compare animal, bacterial, and plant cell structures.

When looking at the 3D view of a cell, you can use your finger to tap on parts of the cell to select and zoom in on that particular organelle. Each organelle comes with a name and a short description of its function in the cell. You also can hold down one finger on the screen, and drag to rotate around the cell or selected organelle 360-degrees to get a better view of it.
Building the 21st Century Science Classroom:
As you may or may not know, you are looking at a Prezi, the modern-day version of Power Point.

As you'll see, it is an easy way to present "slides" of information without being restricted to a linear format. You can add text, pictures, video, etc. and present them with pre-made templates or test your creativity. You can even import existing Power Points that you'd like to spruce up.
(And since it'd be silly to present you with a bevy of technological tools without telling you the means of presenting them, we'll start with...)

App & Tool Overview
PicCollage allows students to manipulate pictures, documents, maps, text, and more.
Instantly arrange your photos into frames - or get creative with free-form collages, cutouts, filters, borders, stickers, and text.
We've had students create/complete graphic organizers collages, and flyers on various topics such as cell structures, famous scientists, food webs and more!
7th Grade
Life Science
iPad/Android app
"We give you a blank wall.
You put anything you want on it, anywhere.
Simple, yet powerful."
educreations.com / Free iPad App
From the App Store description: “Educreations turns your iPad into a recordable whiteboard. Creating a great video tutorial is as simple as touching, tapping, and talking. Explain a math formula... Create an animated lesson... Add commentary to your photos... Diagram a sports play…” Better yet, when you create an account, you can push the videos off the iPad and play them wherever you need!
9th Grade
Honors Biology
SC.912.L.16.5: Explain the basic processes of transcription and translation, and how they result in the expression of genes.
Students can create their own presentations to explain how DNA is transcribed to RNA.
Teachers can use recordable whiteboards to review content and provide additional instruction to students who missed the lesson
ThingLink helps you create and discover rich images. Be creative! Make your images come alive with music, video, text, images, shops, and more. Teachers can use ThingLink to create one “central hub” image for students to explore or students can create their own ThingLink on a topic assigned by their teacher. It looks basic, but it is an expansive tool.
Ever want to bring an old dead guy back to life? How about a statue? Or a mathematician? Morfo is your tool! Morfo allows you to take a still photograph or image and turn it into a living, talking, (and possibly dancing) modern-day marvel. This is a great tool to introduce new content/historical figures or to have your students develop scripts and truly become another person!
8th Grade - Physical Science
SC.6.P.13.1: Investigate and describe types of forces including contact forces and forces acting at a distance, such as electrical, magnetic, and gravitational.
“Great for work. Great for school. Popplet is a platform for your ideas. Popplet's super simple interface allows you to move at the speed of your thoughts. With Popplet you can capture your ideas, sort them visually, and collaborate with others in real-time. Quickly and easily!”

This app is great for creating brain maps, word maps, timelines, and just about anything else you can think of!
App ("Lite" version is free; $4.99 for full version)
Flipbook Lite
“Easily make your doodles come to life and share them with your friends." Flipbook allows you to draw your own cartoon on a blank slate or on top of images from your photo library, then test out your creation. "Flipbook puts animation into your hands."
7th Grade
Life Science
SC.7.L.16.3: Compare and contrast the general processes of sexual reproduction requiring meiosis and asexual reproduction requiring mitosis
Use Flipbook Lite to create a visual depiction of the phases of mitosis and how their states differ from one another. Your FlipBook should include a description of when cells undergo mitosis!
Google Voice is a form of no-fuss communication. Connect any telephone number to a “Google Voice” number and control/visualize the content being transmitted through your devices. With Google Voice, students can call in and leave messages for their teacher which can then be emailed, downloaded as .mp3 files, or embedded in web sites.

With Google Voice, students can submit Academic Vocabulary Words from anywhere on campus.

Most importantly, you as the teacher can share information and communicate with students without compromising your personal contact information.
1. Research Newton's Laws online.
2. Write a script explaining each of Newton's Laws.
3. With your partner, create a Newton morpho explaining each of Newton's Laws.
4. Share your videos with your group and post your favorite one to padlet.
Weebly is a free, drag and drop website builder. It makes it incredibly simple to create a powerful, professional website without any technical skills required. Content is added simply by dragging & dropping, and text is edited just like it is in a word processor.
Example Class Blogs:
Remind101 is a free text-messaging service that your students can subscribe to, allowing you to send them friendly reminders. There is no transfer of your personal contact information; just a simple and safe way to send text messages to individual students, groups of students, or whole classes from a simple web-based dock (or app).

iPad/Android app
SC.6.L.14.4: Compare and contrast the structure and function of major organelles of plant and animal cells, including cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, cytoplasm, chloroplasts, mitochondria, and vacuoles.
1. Explore an animal cell using iCell.
2. Select 6 major organelles and find two important facts for each organelle. Yes, that’s 12 total facts.
3. Using the PicCollage App, create an Animal Cell Organelle collage. Include a title, 6 pictures, organelle names, and your 12 fascinating facts.
4. Post your Animal Cell Organelle collage to the class padlet or Edmodo page!!!

What did Earth look like 250 million years ago? Or 1 billion years ago? Or 4.5 billion years ago? What was the climate like in the deep past?

Find the answers with EarthViewer, a new interactive tool for exploring the science of Earth's deep history. From molten mass to snowball earth, EarthViewer lets you see continents grow and shift as you scroll through billions of years. Additional layers let you and your students explore changes in atmospheric composition, temperature, biodiversity, day length, and solar luminosity over deep time.

What's Nearpod?
The Nearpod platform enables teachers to use their iPads to manage content on students' iPads, iPhones or iPods. It combines presentation, collaboration, and real-time assessment tools into one integrated solution.
Nearpod allows teachers to:
1. Create Content: Teachers log in to www.nearpod.com to create multimedia presentations with interactive features such as quizzes, videos, polls, drawing tools, and more. They can also access featured presentations from certified publishers and fellow educators.

2. Engage: In the classroom, teachers can share content with their students and manage the flow of the lecture. Students use the Nearpod app to receive curricular content, participate in activities and submit responses.

3. Assess: Teachers can see students’ answers in real time on the Nearpod app. Additionally, teachers can log in to www.nearpod.com to access post-session
data and obtain detailed activity reports.
