Enhancing Science Learning with Technology Resources

Monday, May 17, 2010

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By


The 21st Century classroom provides an opportunity for new technological tools to improve students’ science understanding. But which technologies are the most useful? Which allow the students to fully explore concepts without distracting from their basic understanding of core concepts? How can teachers learn about these new technologies and how to implement them in their classrooms?

Join other NYC science and math teachers to hear from world class scientific organizations about the technologies they have developed to augment classroom learning about science.
