Teaching with Technology: Using Websites and Videos to Increase Understanding of Bacterial Transformation
McCormack, Stephanie; Ross, Donna L.
Science Teacher, v77 n7 p40-45 Oct 2010
Technology can be a powerful tool to increase motivation, engagement, and achievement (Park, Khan, and Petrina 2009). In this article, the authors describe their collaborative approach to integrating technology with a lab on bacterial transformation. Students view websites and create videos to increase their conceptual understanding. Although the authors used this project in a 10th-grade biology class, the concept is applicable to all scientific disciplines. (Contains 1 figure and 8 online resources.)
