Web 2.0 refers to using the Web in a more interactive, and social way where students can create, share, publish and work together in collaborative groups. Over the years, science teachers have created a variety of Web 2.0 projects for K-12 students.
This post is to announce the availability of three Web 2.0 projects that you can use with your students. The projects are geared to students in grades 4 – 12, and they can be used in a variety of situations. They could be used as an interesting way to begin the year (especially Project Green Classroom), individual or small teams of students could use any of the projects as a starting place for a project or a science fair investigation. You could use any of these as part of your ongoing curriculum.
- Project Green Classroom—you and your students try and answer the question: How green in our classroom? Off to the project.
- Project Ozone–students explore the quality of the air they breathe, and also investigate two aspects of ozone: the good and the bad. Read more…
- Project River Watch–students learn to monitor a local stream or river, and use the data collected to make an evaluation of the quality of the stream’s water. Further information…
Each project has its own website from which you can work with your students, and connect with students and teachers in other schools.
