Rico's Teaching Tip
Creating student opportunities to make real observations and share results are defining challenges during NTI. I created these plans to help my own science methods students explore and share their results while learning from home. The first is a simple cardboard document camera stand, assembled in a few minutes from three pieces of cardboard and a hot glue gun. It allows my students to use their smartphone to record a range of at home experiments. The second, a waterdrop smartphone microscope, lets my students explore hidden details around them.
