As schools plan for an unusual 2021 academic year, many physics and chemistry educators are searching for flexible teaching methods to support their students’ evolving needs for in-class, distance and hybrid learning.
On this week’s edition of PASCO Live, our specialists will unbox and discuss PASCO’s latest solution, Lab Stations for Physics and Chemistry. Complete with printed lab instructions, corresponding sensors, connections to computational thinking with coding, digital access to robust teaching tools and suggestions, all packed into a custom-cut storage and classroom management tray. Lab Stations simplify experimental setups to provide educators with an easy and affordable solution for examining standards-aligned phenomena from any location.
Programming lessons are essential for preparing today's students for tomorrow's job market, but many coding solutions fail to make real-world connections. Join us this Thursday for the debut of the //code.Node Solution Set, an all-in-one approach to teaching key coding concepts through hands-on investigations. We'll introduce the //code.Node Solution Set and explain how you can teach coding alongside standards and data literacy in any learning model.
Join us this Wednesday to learn about PASCO’s new solutions for Distance and Hybrid Learning with our Science Lab Stations. We are helping Elementary, Middle and High school science educators meet the challenges of distance and hybrid learning environments for the upcoming school year.
Join us Thursday, June 25th for a special edition of PASCO Live! Host Mike Paskowitz will be doing live demonstrations using his favorite PASCO product, the Materials Testing System. He'll take you beyond simple load-displacement curves using a thermal camera, microscope, and video analysis to complete in-depth sample analysis. Don't miss your chance to participate in this live investigation of sample tension and bending.
Join us on PASCO Live to learn how you can use PASCO software for data analysis in traditional and distance learning environments. We'll highlight key analysis features in both SPARKvue and Capstone to help you determine which platform is best for your students, before demonstrating how these features can be used for in-class and remote learning. Don't miss this chance to have your software questions answered live by PASCO specialists.
Join PASCO specialists for a discussion about using digital curriculum and labs to enhance distance learning for science students. We will discuss how you can use Essential Chemistry and Essential Physics curriculum to remotely support student learning in a distance learning environment. If your school is considering distance learning or a hybrid model next year, be sure to join us to ask questions, get answers, and participate in this educational discussion.
Join us for an introduction to PASCO’s latest innovation and see how you can infuse coding in new and exciting ways both in-class and at home. We will run through //code.Node “out of the box” to introduce features. Then we will model what a lesson in-class may look like, followed by how a student could complete an extension to the lesson at home.
PASCO Capstone™ and SPARKvue software now support coding through Blockly! Join us for a live session on Facebook or YouTube to learn how you can use coding to enhance science learning in your classroom. We will address relevant topics, including:
- Computational and sequential thinking
- Principles of coding for scientific investigation
- Basic sense-and-respond interactions
Plus, we’ll demonstrate how students can use Blockly to continue learning from home without additional equipment.
This week, JJ Plank and Dan Burns will showcase the great ability to teach online or in-class with FREE resources that can be used with basic and complex circuitry. Former Florida State Director, Dr. JP Keener will host this exciting opportunity to see ways to teach online while building your in-class resources for both University and High School Physics.
Will your students continue distance learning next Fall? Or during the Summer? Whether you are planning for at-home labs, a flipped model or some hybrid, PASCO has solutions for you! Join our Facebook Live event to learn the pedagogy of how PASCO supports your science lab instruction in any mode of delivery. Give students access to free science software, as well as other materials, and discover tools that allow students to share data between lab groups.
