Edutech for Teachers » Tech Tip of the Week Gooru: Science & Math Resources February7 Resource: Gooru is new service whose mission is to provide teachers and students with a variety of multimedia resources – videos, diagrams, interactive displays, documents and quizzes – related to 5th–12th grade science and math topics. Ohio's State Tests in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies Why do students take state tests? State achievement tests tell us how well our students are growing in the knowledge and skills outlined in Ohio’s Learning Standards. These tests help guide and strengthen future teaching so we can be sure that we are preparing our students for long-term success in school, college, careers and life. Test results also allow citizens to know how their local schools are performing compared to others around the state. Which tests will be given for what grade level? Grades 3-8
100 Coolest Science Experiments on YouTube - X-Ray Technician Schools Although YouTube has something of a reputation as a repository for the inane mental diarrhea of stunted man-children injuring each other for cheap laughs or shrill teenage drama queens shrieking like harpies over the latest bland, interchangeable lump passing as the epitome of masculine beauty, many others thankfully take advantage of its services as a portal to share their knowledge and educate viewers. While few of the scientific offerings formally follow the scientific method or test an explicitly stated hypothesis, even those videos veering more towards demonstrating various principles, theories, and laws still offer visitors a chance to learn something about how the world around them operates. By this point, it should go without saying that many of the following videos contain procedures that may be dangerous to perform at home or without the proper equipment and/or training. Please do not duplicate any of these experiments unless assured that they are entirely safe for amateurs.
Simple But Mindblowing Helium Balloon Experiment Newton’s first law of motion states that an object at rest will stay at rest, while an object in motion will stay in motion, unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. An easy way to demonstrate this is in the car. When the car accelerates, you (and all other objects in the car) appear to be pushed backwards because the car is moving faster than you were as a resting object. A sudden deceleration makes you fly forward in your seat, because your body was now traveling at a particular speed and was going to keep going at that rate. This is why seat belts are important. MathOps Worksheets Worksheets Worksheets About - Features Seamlessly integrating VoiceThread into your Learning Management System (LMS) is the key to user happiness. VoiceThread works well within a broad range of systems, but the most powerful option is the standard developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium called Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI). LTI allows VoiceThread to integrate into most major Learning Management Systems, including but not limited to Blackboard, Sakai, Angel, Canvas, Desire2Learn, BrainHoney and Moodle. Single Sign-onAll users access VoiceThread with a single click. Through LTI, VoiceThread will know the context of the user from the LMS, and an account will be created for that person.

Synthetic Biology Synthetic biology is perhaps the most accelerating science. In fact, since biology became an information technology, for the past several years synthetic biology has been developing even faster than Moore's Law. And just one example - paralel to the pioneering days of computer science, is the explosion in DIY biology garage-based hacker labs. There is a large and rapidly growing number of relevant YouTube videos.
