How I Use It
The accelerometer can be used in any type of lab that requires motion or the use of forces. The app also comes with a sound intensity reader, an ambient light sensor, and a barometer. The data gathered can be seen using the real time graph function. It'll give you the average of what you're measuring over a specified amount of time as well.
My Take
The app is great for science classrooms to demonstrate concepts of acceleration, sound intensity, atmospheric pressure, and lux. The app encourages student to apply what they know and analyze the data to glean some information. On the SAMR model, the app could be used at the modification level. The app allows real time data to be gathered and analyzed with a push of a button.
