Using Online Simulations to Improve Conceptual Understanding in Math and Science

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Session Description: Learn how online simulations help teachers take advantage of research-proven instructional strategies and help students of all ability levels develop conceptual understanding in math and science. Teachers can supplement and enhance instruction with powerful interactive visualizations of concepts. Students can manipulate key variables, generate and test hypotheses, and engage in extensive “what-if” experimentation.

Session Outcomes: Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to:
1. Share with colleagues what is Gizmos and how it can support math and science
2. Understand how an online simulation can be used to foster inquiry and discovery
3. Incorporate an online simulation into their curriculum
