Question Detail

I am changing my PreAP Chemistry classes to a technology rich, engaging classroom next year. I will have chromebook tablets for each student, and will be using Google Classroom, I believe. I am looking for apps, and ideas for teaching Chemistry. Any suggestions from anyone with experience in this area? My current classes are very traditional; paper, pencil, labs, etc., without the technology component that I want.

      Do you have access to any electronic data collection devices? I use Vernier, that is a nice technology to have in the classroom and they have apps for almost every platform.

      With Google Classroom you could probably have students submit work electronically (I'm not very familiar with its capabilities). I have students do their daily drill either on a Word document which I check monthly, or in an organizational program like Evernote or OneNote. I like Evernote the best but in my experience students have an easier time with OneNote. Both can be shared electronically with a teacher. Not sure if Google has a similar program.

      The PhET website has a lot of great animations for Chemistry topics: https://phet.colorado.edu/. I'm sure there is a great periodic table app out there too but I haven't used one.

      Quizlet is a great website and app for vocabulary, very popular with students.
