00:01 - Peggy George
:-) interesting Susie!

01:19 - Annette Whitby
Sounds fun!

03:18 - LucianeCurator
Hello Paula :)

03:37 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hello Luciane. :)

03:47 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Hi Paula, Susie, and Luciane

03:56 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hello everyone. Excited to learn from Tia this morning.

04:06 - Peggy George
Hi Paula! Always so great to see you in the room!!!!

04:25 - Peggy George
Our Livebinder for today:

04:38 - Peggy George
she gets super excited is an understatement :-)

05:04 - Peggy George
you can simulate science experiments without all of the consumable products

05:08 - Susie @shighley
I taught science for 23 yrs., left to work in library in 2001. I often think of ways I would do things differently if I were still teaching science

05:13 - Peggy George
less teacher prep time :-)

05:41 - Annette Whitby
Recently, I was looking some online research logs. I think this is a very engaging way for students to log into.

05:41 - Peggy George
love that there are so many tools now that allow students to collaborate!

06:02 - Peggy George

06:14 - Peggy George
Her Livebinder is the first sub-tab in our binder today!

06:21 - @viralber
I'm following Letia!

06:26 - Peggy George (Letia Cooper’ website)

06:42 - Peggy George
Livebinder for her resources. She’l focus on this tab:

06:58 - Peggy George (Science NetLinks)

07:04 - Susie @shighley
I've always liked the calendars on her website

07:21 - Peggy George
it's great to have so many science lesson plans always ready to go for all grade levels!

08:08 - Peggy George
are the Science NetLinks aligned to Common Core? :-) You just answered this! Thanks

08:28 - tam
wow, love it!

08:41 - Peggy George
everyone has standards and teaching objectives even if you aren't using Common Core standards

09:56 - Peggy George
I love PBS Learning Media! They have incredible videos, lesson plans and resources for all subjects!

10:09 - Peggy George (PBS Learning Media-Science Collection)

10:38 - Peggy George
Hi Nancy! Welcome!

11:00 - Peggy George
wow! science had 1300+ resources!!

11:42 - Peggy George
all of those resources can be accessed on computers--don't need ipads, etc.

12:16 - Peggy George
you can embed these videos on Thinglinks, Livebinders, Pearltrees, Pinterest, etc!!! So many places!

12:22 - Susie @shighley
I haven't heard of this one

12:25 - Peggy George (BrainGenie Science-Gr. 6-8 example)

12:45 - Peggy George
I can go back and learn all of the things I didn't learn in HS :-)

13:52 - Peggy George
I'm sure that's a huge help to parents who don't really know how to help their kids!

14:18 - Peggy George
haha :-)

14:42 - Peggy George
if they take a long time you'll know they're searching for the answer on Google :-)

14:51 - Annette Whitby
Wow . . . liking the Brain Genie site . . .

15:02 - Peggy George (Instagrok)

15:41 - Peggy George
such a visual way to learn

16:13 - Peggy George
all those green things are links

16:20 - Peggy George

16:56 - Susie @shighley
Is instagrok a site that has free parts but also premium paid parts? I was thinking it used to be like that

16:57 - Peggy George
do students need emails to create accounts on instagrok?

17:19 - Peggy George
Lorie will ask Tia our questions during Q/A

18:11 - Peggy George
Instagrok is also available in Edmodo

18:13 - Peggy George

18:29 - Peggy George
$45/year for classroom

19:10 - Peggy George
it has a 90 day free trial so you can explore everything all summer long :-)

19:11 - Sava Kovacevic
Edmodo is exelent!

19:27 - Peggy George (BioDigital Human: great site for exploring and learning about parts of the human body. Hear the correct pronunciation of body parts, learn what conditions affect organs, nerves, tissue and muscles. Turn on and off the different systems.)

19:36 - Peggy George
seeing it great!

20:16 - Peggy George
absolutely! This would be so helpful after you get a diagnosis from a doctor!

20:27 - Peggy George
Hi DrThomasHo! So glad you could join us!

20:50 - Peggy George
that's something you could not do if you didn't have technology!

21:05 - Annette Whitby
That looks fun. In my law course, I can create a hypo showing how the consumer was injured by a food product for example . . .

21:39 - Peggy George
all the names for the bones! they could become trivia contest winners :-)

21:47 - Peggy George
Hi Laura! Welcome!

21:56 - Peggy George (Sixty Symbols: videos about the symbols of physics and astronomy)

22:31 - Peggy George (Stop Disasters Game: Great site for learning about hurricans, tornadoes, wildfires, tsunami, earthquake. This is a great economics activity too.)

23:02 - Peggy George
This would be an amazing site to be using right now during all of the flooding and wild fires and draught!

23:18 - Annette Whitby
A timely topic, indeed.

23:57 - Peggy George
might not be the best place to build your house :-)

25:08 - Peggy George
Her Livebinder is inside of our Livebinder today along with some other excellent Science Livebinders and STEM resources.

25:21 - Peggy George (CSI: The Experience. A great activity to do over the course of the school year. Motivate students who are interested in police works and forensics.)

25:29 - Peggy George
I love CSI!!!

26:04 - Peggy George
I think CSI is the reason many kids decide they want to become crime investigators :-)

26:09 - @plnaugle (Paula)
How much fun would this be for studnets to solve CSI cases.

26:23 - Peggy George

27:09 - Peggy George
lots of great things to think about!

27:21 - Peggy George
they're already watching it on TV!

27:43 - Susie @shighley
it's an advantage of giving students choice to pursue their interests

27:49 - Peggy George
so realistic!

28:20 - Peggy George (EdHeads-great activity starter and for kids who are interested in the medical field)

28:22 - Susie @shighley
I've found that the interest in forensics has sort of dropped off from a few years ago when the shows first came out

29:03 - Peggy George
really Susie? My grandkids still love it!

29:07 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I loved using StudyJams for math and science with my students.

29:10 - Susie @shighley
I've been away from lots of science resources for a while. I'd like to know how she finds out about many of these.

29:42 - Peggy George
one is actually in the military with a job as a forensic investigator

30:14 - Peggy George (American Museum of Natural History’ science website for kids)

30:29 - Susie @shighley
So much better than the traditional "career report"

30:40 - Annette Whitby
@Paula Thx. checking out StudyJams

These are great! I have discovered a new world! I will check some of the weblinks for my classes too...

30:52 - Peggy George
fantastic Tiziana!

30:52 - Annette Whitby
Great, Tiziana!

31:20 - Peggy George (E is for Explore: one stop resource for teachers and parents-unique learning activities, and compilation of additional great ideas from other sources)

31:30 - Peggy George
wouldn't that be fun???

31:40 - Annette Whitby
Love the scavenger hunt!

32:07 - Peggy George (My Fav Scientist: short videos of an assortment of men and women from the past and present)

32:22 - Peggy George
those videos are great! I watched the one about Einstein :-)

32:44 - Annette Whitby
I'm going to spend the summer going through this LiveBinder. So many neat resources.

33:05 - Peggy George (BlendSpace-formerly Edcanvas: Great for building Science presentations. Fully integrated with Youtube, Edmodo,Power Point, Google Drive, dropbox, Flickr and More! QR code embedded. Collect web resources in one place and share with just one link, measure student understanding with built-in quizzes, monitor student progress and adapt to student needs in real-time)

33:19 - Susie @shighley
Our teachers use blendspace a lot

33:39 - Peggy George
I didn't realize EdCanvas had changed to BlendSpace until I saw Tia's resources :-)

33:44 - Susie @shighley
You can search blendspaces that others have created to get ideas

34:24 - Peggy George
can you save them Susie?

35:08 - Peggy George
the blendspaces created by others

35:29 - Peggy George
that is so easy to find resources!!

36:00 - Peggy George

36:06 - Susie @shighley
Yes, you can copy them

36:17 - Susie @shighley
Then you can modify them

36:43 - Peggy George
I put a link in our Livebinder for the tons of free science resources/videos available on Discovery Ed and you could use those in BlendSpace

37:19 - Sheri Edwards @grammasheri
Blendspace is awesome -- as you could see -- very easy to build units. Wondering -- eportfolios???

37:35 - LucianeCurator
In my last blog post I share: Top 20 ipad apps for flipped classroom . I hope all will enjoy

37:39 - Peggy George (Kahoot: game-based classroom response system)

37:41 - Susie @shighley
We've had lots of kids make kahoots

38:14 - Peggy George (Xperica iPad app: Makes science fun and interactive, understanding science through textbooks can be hard, brings the experience of touch to various science experiments to foster better understanding. Users can interact with various elements to see how the experiment as a whole reacts. Free download)

38:21 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I had students create Kahoots under my account for our social studies units. Stuents love playing Kahoot.

38:29 - Peggy George (Animated Essential Atlas Anatomy: iPhone/iPad app-Take pictures from the app to create a powerpoint with the Office HD App or to use in Edcanvas, Popplet)

38:42 - Peggy George (LeafSnap for iPad: electronic field guide, free mobile app uses visual recognition software to help identify tree species from photographs of their leaves. Leafsnap contains beautiful high-resolution images of leaves, flowers, fruit, petiole, seeds, and bark)
