How I Use It
Science360 (for iPad), a free app created by the National Science Foundation (NSF), is a good tool for creating interest in the wonders of science. Its massive grid of thumbnails provides access to informative and often visually stunning images and videos related to NSF projects, sure to intrigue and delight even the most science-phobic among us.
My Take
A handy tool for teachers is the ability to email videos and images for later use. In addition, the in-app news feed lets teachers keep abreast of breaking science news. With a single touch, teachers can keep an archive of material they’ve used in class, saving favorite images and video clips for easy re-use. Arguably the app’s best feature is the new content it adds weekly.
