CanvasMol

Canvas Mol could be a great resource for chemistry and biology teachers and students. Teachers can manipulate the models to include or not include all parts of the model. Teachers could choose to not display one element of the model and challenge students to identify the molecule.

Secondary Science Simulations and Activities

This site offers a growing bank of imaginative, highly visual teaching-aids developed for use with interactive whiteboards in 11-18 Schools. The resources are designed to be used as rich sources of visually stimulating material, making use of both animations and drag and drop interactivity. The appropriate Key Stage is indicated for each resource. It is hoped that the resources will help students to make sense of some of the more challenging concepts they encounter. Many of the resources can be used to support starter or plenary activities.

The Physics Classroom

The Physics Classroom Tutorial is an online physics tutorial written for high school physics students.The Tutorial covers basic physics topics using informative graphics and an easy-to-understand language. Each unit is broken up into lessons and sub-lessons. A lesson resembles the type and extent of coverage given to that physics topic in class. The sub-lessons are accompanied by Check Your Understanding sections, providing an opportunity to assess one's understanding of the lesson material. The tutorial, when combined with other resources at this site provides a student of physics a great opportunity to learn and to test their understanding.

Interactive Map of Past and Present Climate Data

In late 2009 the UK Government launched an Open Data initiative, headed by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, along with a call for innovations challenging the developer community to make this data more accessible. In response, Geo.me Solutions is showcasing a number of concept demonstrations using map-based visualisations. The data set represented in the map below was released by the UK Met Office in December 2009. It consists of a network of individual land stations designated by the World Meteorological Organization for use in climate monitoring. The data show monthly average temperature values for over 1,500 land stations.

The Periodic Table of Videos - University of Nottingham

Tables charting the chemical elements have been around since the 19th century - but this modern version has a short video about each one. We've done all 118 - but our job's not finished. Now we're updating all the videos with new stories, better samples and bigger experiments. Plus we're making films about other areas of chemistry, latest news and occasional adventures away from the lab.

Annenberg Media Grade 9-12

Videos can be a good teaching resource, but they need to be used as part of lesson rather than being the lesson. Annenberg Media provides lesson plans that model using video as a part of the lesson rather than using video as the lesson. Lesson plans are categorized by content and grade level. Most of the lesson plans include free online videos. To find lessons that include free online videos look for a small "VOD" symbol attached near the title of each lesson plan. Clicking the VOD symbol will launch a video player in a new window

learningscience.org

learningscience.org is an organization dedicated to sharing the newer and emerging "learning tools" of science education. Tools such as real-time data collection, simulations, inquiry based lessons, interactive web lessons, micro-worlds, and imaging,  among others, can help make teaching science an exciting and engaging endeavor. These tools can help connect students with science, in ways that were impossible just a few years ago. Take a look at a few different types of "learning tools" at this link, Tool Examples. At this point in our project we are highlighting some of the best web resources for science concepts. Although our main emphasis is on students, teachers, and parents, really anyone interested in science education will find the site useful and informative.

Stop Disasters

Stop Disasters is a game designed for students to learn about natural disasters, disaster prevention, and city design. There are five game scenarios that students can play. Students can plan to prepare for hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires, and tsunamis. The scenarios are set in geographically accurate contexts of Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Caribbean.

For teachers Stop Disasters provides fact sheets to distribute to students about each type of natural disaster. Stop Disasters also provides teachers with teaching guides, lesson plan ideas, and links to additional reference materials.

Biology in Motion

Dr. Saul's Biology in Motion features fantastic interactive activities and animations for students to use to learn human biology concepts. The activities and animations seem to be targeted toward a middle school audience there is a lot of value in Biology in Motion for high school students too. Biology in Motion offers some good tips for teachers planning to use these activities in the classroom. Most of the tips are things that might seem obvious, but are good reminders none-the-less.

Teaching with Smartboard Math - Science 6-12

This weekly Video Podcast explores SMARTBoard teaching techniques to 6-12 Math Teachers.  Our emphasis and purpose is to create lessons that are engaging for students.  The lessons we will present will focus on getting students up to the smartboard and out of their desks.  We will be covering template lessons that the viewer will be able to download off our website.  Although we will be focusing on Math topics, most lessons can be applied to any subject.

Welcome to Biology in Motion

Welcome to Biology in Motion Welcome to BiologyInMotion! Here you will find animations, interactive activities, and cartoons designed to make learning biology a richer, more engaging experience. After years of teaching biology in various colleges and universities, I began developing my own graphics and multimedia, mainly for in-class presentation. The many positive responses I received led me to initiate this website, where you will find an ever-growing collection of resources. New additions will include interactive tutorials, quizzes, and other activities, in addition to updated versions of the many biology cartoons currently gathering dust in my portfolio.

NOVA | Killer Disease on Campus | Making Vaccines | PBS

NOVA | Killer Disease on Campus | Making Vaccines | PBS A vaccine against meningococcal disease or any other disease works by generating an immune response in the body against some kind of pathogen--a virus, bacterium, or some other agent that causes the disease. Normally when a pathogen invades the body, the immune system works to get rid of the pathogen. Often, though, the immune system gets a slow start, which gives the pathogen time to multiply and cause trouble. What a vaccine does is expose the immune system to a less-threatening version of a pathogen and, in effect, prime it to recognize and quickly eliminate the innocuous pathogen's harmful counterpart, should it ever invade the body. This feature lets you create six vaccines in your own virtual laboratory, using a different technique to produce each one.
