Professional Development

To teach is to make a life long commitment to learning--for our students and for ourselves. Teachers must work hard to stay abreast of new science content and pedagogy, which is why most states typically require ongoing professional development for re-certification every five years. LAB-AIDSĀ® can help teachers acquire new content and skills, whether you are a veteran teacher, new to the profession, or somewhere in between.

Using Tablets in the Science Classroom

Why take this course?  More and more Districts are implementing 1:1 digital initiatives in their schools.  Science teachers are often overlooked in the implementation of these programs.  This workshop will focus on the effective use of tablet devices in the science classroom. Content includes use of virtual or online laboratory activities, support for online science notebooks, free or low cost apps (iOS and Android) to support the science program, and supporting student creation of digital or electronic student work products using free or low cost applications like Evernote, iMovie, Penultimate, and more.

Participants will be provided with access to our online libraries of student work products, online laboratories, and more, and will have extensive opportunity to practice with the app library and other workshop tools in real time.  This workshop is suitable for middle level teachers.
