4 Resources for Biology/Science Teachers

4 resources for science teachers

After collaborating with several math teachers over the course of the year, I have collected several Science-focused EdTech resources that I have found very useful. I have selected my favorite podcast, app, web resource, and blog that supports the math curriculum. Check these out!


Podcast: Science on Top

https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/science-on-top

Each week, Ed (a science enthusiast), Penny (a science teacher), Dr. Shayne (an environmental biologist and Lucas (an amateur astronomer) take a look at the science news that often doesn’t make it into the mainstream media. Science On Top is their attempt to shed light on the extraordinary work being done in the name of science and discuss the world of science in general.


App: Equatio

If you teach science, you understand how math and science fit together.  Here is a cross-over app that will be beneficial for any teacher working with equations or formulas.  Teachers can easily create mathematical equations, formulas, and quizzes through this intuitive typing or speaking app.  Watch the formulas appear on your Google Slides, Sheets, and Docs.


Web Resource: Data Nuggets

What are Data Nuggets?

Data Nuggets are free classroom activities that are co-managed by scientists and teachers.  The goals of Data Nuggets are two-fold:

  • To help scientists increase the broader impacts of their research by sharing their “science story” and data with the public
  • To engage students in the practices of science through an innovative approach that combines scientific content from authentic research with key concepts in quantitative reasoning.

Blog: Science For All  

https://teachscience4all.org/

The purpose of this blog is to share transformational teaching resources that will enhance science education teaching practices while supporting student learning.
