WMS Science Teacher Makes Concepts Concrete Using Technology

WMS 6th grade science teacher Josh Huff helps his students understand graphing and measurement by using Vernier probes with handheld digital devices. Students preview the graphs on paper the day before and then partner to move themselves and watch their movement graph on the device. Huff explains that the digital graph corresponding to their movements makes the concept suddenly clear for many of his students.

  1. These kids were so engaged as they worked to get their movements to exactly match the loaded graph. They collaborated and conferred and their learning was obvious.
