Teaching Methods, Teaching Resources, Technology | July 16, 2020 Virtual Summer Symposium: At-Home Activities and Resources for Teaching Chemistry Online
One thing all successful veteran chemistry teachers have in common is a full toolbox of ideas they can rely on when the unpredictable happens. Prepare for the 2020–2021 school year with help from some of the best of those veterans! They will share some of their favorite “at home” activities and resources for teaching online.
Teaching Resources, Technology | July 30, 2020 Virtual Summer Symposium: Chemistry Games
This symposium will focus on using games to teach chemical concepts, covering a gamut of topics from Lewis dots to NMR. The format of the games vary--some are played with cards and manipulatives, while others are playable online. If you are looking for creative ways to increase student motivation and understanding, this symposium will provide some exciting avenues for engaging students.
Teaching Methods, Teaching Resources, Advanced Chemistry, Technology | July 14, 2020 Virtual Summer Symposium: Teaching AP Chemistry Virtually
This session will focus on teaching AP chemistry online. AP teachers will share instructional tools, online activities, and laboratory options for teaching AP chemistry virtually this fall.
Teaching Methods, Teaching Resources, Advanced Chemistry, Technology | July 7, 2020 Virtual Summer Symposium: Simulations to Enhance Chemical Instruction
In order to gain understanding of chemical principles, students need to be exposed to concepts in multiple ways. Some simulations can be used to help students visualize chemistry at the particle level while others can be used to model laboratory procedures. In this symposia, various online simulations and accompanying lesson ideas will be shared that are versatile for both in person and online instruction.
Technology | January 30, 2018 Incorporating PhET Simulations into a Unit on Covalent Bonding, Liquids, and Solids
Experienced high school chemistry teacher and former PhET employee Trish Loeblein provides tips for how to incorporate simulations from PhET into topical units for high school chemistry.
Lab & Safety, Advanced Chemistry, Technology | December 6, 2017 Integrating Virtual Labs into the AP/IB Chemistry Curriculum
Virtual chemistry labs can not only help teachers meet specific learning targets in the AP chemistry curriculum, but they also enable students to take an investigative and experimental approach to learning chemistry. Virtual labs can bring textbook concepts to life as students run "what if" experiments on their laptops.
Technology | November 1, 2016 Incorporating PhET Simulations into Topical Units in High School Chemistry
Experienced high school chemistry teacher and PhET K12 specialist Amy Hanson discusses ways to effectively use PhET simulations to help students learn about balancing chemical equations, stoichiometry, and solutions. Amy shares classroom resources for you to use with the simulations she discusses.
Technology | July 20, 2016 Ten Signs of a 21st Century Classroom
We teach in 2016 so why do many of our classrooms look like they’re from the 1950s? Concepts from engineering can help to modernize our teaching methods and classroom style. We'll discuss tools for improving technology integration, collaboration, creativity, inquiry, justification for answers, writing for reflection, problem solving, hands-on learning, the role of the teacher as a facilitator, and transparent assessment.
Technology | February 23, 2016 Making Topic Specific Videos
It can be daunting to consider creating an entire set of video resources to accompany your curriculum. But with some effort up front you can maximize engagement, retention, and enthusiasm in the classroom. Once recorded your content can be used every year, and by students as study tools. Whatever your skill level, learn how to easily make content in this webinar.
Technology | February 9, 2016 Incorporating PhET Simulations
Experienced high school chemistry teachers and PhET K–12 specialists join us for a third webinar to discuss effective ways to use PhET simulations. This webinar will focus on using the simulations to help students learn about atomic structure, molecule polarity, and acid-base solutions.
Technology, Teaching Methods | January 12, 2016 Why Flip? Reach Every Student In Every Class Every Day
Implementing the Flipped Class model provides teachers with more face-to-face time with students, allows for true differentiation, compels students to take responsibility for their own learning, and enables them to master rigorous course concepts. Flipped Classroom pioneer Aaron Sams demonstrates how a Flipped Class can transform today's educational climate and increase student learning outcomes.
Technology | May 20, 2015 Using ODYSSEY in the Chemistry Classroom
Visualization and simulation at the molecular level is highly instructive and fun for both students and teachers. An experienced high school chemistry teacher and a chemistry curriculum developer share ideas for integrating ODYSSEY in your classroom.
Technology | April 14, 2015 The Connected Chemistry Curriculum In Action
An experienced teacher shares how she uses the Connected Chemistry Curriculum (CCC) to teach topics including reactions, gases, acids/bases, and buffers. She also discusses how to work around technology limitations.
Technology | February 25, 2015 Teaching Chemistry Using PhET Simulations: 2
Experienced high school chemistry teacher and PhET K12 specialist Trish Loeblein joins us for a second webinar presenting tips for incorporating PhET simulations into your chemistry classroom.
