Title Datalogging as innovative learning tool
Project Number LLP-LdV-Tol/2008/803
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Marketing Text The latest 2006 report from OECD PISA shows that young Europeans in general lack engagement and interest in science and that they do not fully understand the key part that science plays in today's societies and economies. This situation needs to be reversed. To be able to do that there is a need for making a training course that implements teaching approaches to datalogging. Our project therefore aims at qualifying the science teachers in primary and lower-secondary schools by developing a further training course in how to implement innovative learning approaches to datalogging in science. Datalogging is a tool that by the use of electronic sensors and interfaces measures and records changes in physical variables such as: temperature, hte beat of pulse, pH etc. As a learning tool it contains great didactic potentials.
Description The project will develop a further training course containing descriptions of different teaching approaches to datalogging, concrete examples of how to implement the teaching approaches, knowledge bank, best practice of the use of datalogging as learning tool in science.
