Create and maintain a marine biome with this virtual lab. During this lab, you set up a reef tank and collect data over a (virtual) 12 week period. Along the way, participants learn about using water testing strips to check ammonia, nitrate, and nitrite levels in the tank and monitor ph levels. Other activities include viewing the effect of adding rocks and fish to populate the tank. Throughout the activity, use the journal and tables provided to record data, and answer question prompts.

tag(s): biomes (139), habitats (107), marine biology (35)

In the Classroom

Include this virtual lab as part of your lessons on biomes, specifically the marine biome. Have students complete the journal entries and fill in tables then print to include with your end of unit assessments. Take this activity a step further and have students write blogs to share and discuss their work in maintaining a proper marine environment. Edublogs, reviewed here, provides a free blogging tool for students and educators. Learn even more about marine biomes through a Skype call, reviewed here, to a marine researcher. Alternatively, you might find a webcast on marine science and a scientist to follow at STEM in 30, reviewed here.

Links within the cabinet take users to eight different categories including short video explanations by professionals within the field. Click on any image within the cabinet to view a short description of an item used for a STEM career and one or more videos. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as ClipGrab, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): anthropology (12), careers (144), communication (10), ecology (137), engineering (132), marine biology (35), oceans (165), STEM (184)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save to use when exploring career options with students. Ask students to use information found on this site and others to create an infographic sharing information about a chosen career. Canva, reviewed here, offers many templates for creating infographics. To increase student knowledge of options within STEM careers, have groups of students create a weekly podcast sharing different career fields. Buzzsprout, reviewed here, is an online tool to use when creating and hosting podcasts.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from February 2018, opens in Adobe Connect. Making a learning environment accessible for everyone is critical to a successful inclusive classroom. Today's classrooms are diverse and include English Language Learners and students with learning challenges, whether they have been identified or not. Every teacher needs to be able to create and deliver content in a way that is accessible to each individual student. Fortunately, teachers already have free technologies at their disposal to assist with this. Join us as we explore strategies and tools that facilitate an inclusive learning environment. Participants will: 1. Understand the importance of accessibility; 2. Explore Microsoft tools that can be used to create accessible materials; and 3. Identify an easy new habit, hack, and/or tool they can adopt to help make material accessible for their students. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

tag(s): Accessibility (2), differentiation (53), Microsoft (43), Special Needs (33)

In the Classroom

The archive of this teacher-friendly, hands-on webinar will empower and inspire you to use learning technology in the classroom and for professional productivity. As appropriate, specific classroom examples and ideas have been shared. View the session with a few of your teaching colleagues to find and share new ideas. Find additional information and links to tools at the session resource page. Learn more about OK2Ask and upcoming sessions here.

TryIt is a curation site for STEM learning experiences. Similar to Pinterest, educators choose and create collections of videos, tools, and events. Students build collections of scholarships, internships, and available learning opportunities. Browse by selecting categories or experiences. Register using email to create and curate your collections. The videos on this site reside on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

BiologyGuide is a site from the United Kingdom providing study information and videos for Advanced Placement biology topics. Choose topics from the four different categories to view outlines with information on the category. In addition to outlines, this site also offers many videos including course notes. The best way to find videos is to click on the video link, then "view all courses" instead of entering a search term. The site was created in the UK, so some of the pronunciations and spellings may differ from those in American English. Topic pages include unmoderated Facebook comments. The videos reside on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.
