Teaching laboratory skills is an essential element of middle/high school science. Flexible instructional models are making it necessary for teachers to find innovative approaches to provide hands-in minds-on investigative experiences for learners. Join me as we explore how apps, interactive sims, and citizen science investigations can serve as flexible tools to advance science knowledge transfer, facilitate sense-making, as well as further the development, and application of 21st-century power skills.
