The ChemCollective: Find Activities The ChemCollective is a collection of virtual labs, scenario-based learning activities, tutorials, and concept tests. Teachers can use our content for pre-labs, for alternatives to textbook homework, and for in-class activities for individuals or teams. Students can review and learn chemistry concepts using our virtual labs, simulations, and tutorials. The ChemCollective is organized by a group of faculty and staff at Carnegie Mellon who are interested in using, assessing, and creating engaging online activities for chemistry education. In the game Mixed Reception, students use molar mass calculations, the scientific method, and basic knowledge of chemical reactions to solve a murder mystery. Students interview suspects and gather evidence as they solve the case.
Rhode Island: Come For The Lobsters, Stay For The #edtech Rhode Island: Come For The Lobsters, Stay For The #edtech by Dawn Casey-Rowe, Social Studies Teacher & Learnist Evangelist The edtech scene is heating up in Rhode Island.

While research suggests that foreign language instruction will be a game changer for this generation of students, ELL instruction also is critical. Off the Shelf Chemistry 1. The student will learn that chemicals are not something just found in laboratories. Our physical environment is composed of chemicals. Our bodies are composed of chemicals. 8 Easy Exercises To Help You Stay Fit At Your Desk How many hours a day do you spend sitting?
