Title Remote Technologies in the Middle School Classroom

Description We will be investigating the authentic uses of Bugscope (remote technologies) for use in inquiry and project based learning in the middle school classroom. We will spend time aligning the use of Bugscope with California State Science Content/ Investigation and Experimentation standards for 7th grade science. Teachers in the course will interact with Bugscope experts in order to better understand the authentic use of technology in the "STEM" scheme. (Other dates possible: TH May 19 or TH May 26, 7-8 pm CST).


Where did you hear
about Bugscope?
I have used Bugscope every year since 2000. I find it to be extremely helpful for students to be engaged in authentic uses of technology.
