5 Earth Science Tools That Support NGSS

Tuesday, October 27, 2015 - 1:00-2:00 pm PDT

Are you searching for quality edtech tools that can be used to demonstrate student mastery of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)? In this webinar, you’ll learn practical classroom applications of five top-rated digital tools: National Geographic Education, Google Earth, PBS Learning Media, KQED Do Now, and Nova Labs. Many of these tools embody the Science and Engineering Practices of NGSS, and all of the tools align with the disciplinary core ideas. Examples that will be shown include:

  • Designing robots to clean up the great Pacific Garbage Patch
  • Exploring earthquake data to map out plate boundaries
  • Solving energy problems in different parts of the United States

Join Barbara Huth, high school science teacher, National Board Certified Science Teacher, and Common Sense Education Certified Educator: EdTech Mentor, to hear how she’s using these tools, and leave with ideas for your own classroom. Barbara will field questions from attendees during this live, interactive event. This webinar will benefit middle or high school teachers as well as science coaches that teach earth/environmental science or general science.

This webinar is hosted on the Digital Classroom community on edWeb, where educators can participate in online discussions with peers, receive invitations to upcoming webinars, view past webinar recordings, and take a quiz and receive a CE certificate for a past webinar, and receive access to resources.
