  1. Hi Arlene,
    I visited your activities this morning and really enjoyed them. I think they would work well with my Grade 10 low-level ESL students as well – although I would have to prep the with the required vocabulary first. I think the scaffolding worked very well and at a pace that is manageable for almost all students. My only problem was that I couldn’t link to the final activity “Science Elements”. Could you email me the URL and I can try a different way to get there. Maybe. Thanks.

  2. Hi Arlene,
    I am so impressed with your presentation. I think this would work welt for many age groups. I thoroughly enjoyed doing many of the activities. (I wish they had these when I was a kid). The various experiments built well on each other and were really engaging. I like that you got the participants to try and they got immediate feedback and were able to see their own results. This would be a big draw for my adult learners as well.

    • Hi Sue,
      Thank you for the positive feedback. I’m glad you enjoyed my presentation. I do work with several students with special needs and different learning disabilities and in order to keep them engaged I often use tools and virtual activities with quick responses. Some of the literature suggest that this is the only way to keep today’s generation engaged and motivated in their learning. Are their any specific simulators or virtual tools you use in your current teaching practice?

      Cheers,
      Arlene

  3. We have hands-on simulators that the students get to practice on. I love the BBC education format. I tried to look for something having to do with healthcare or nursing but could not find it.
    I tried to get into the session and I could see that someone was talking but could not connect for some reason-I’m sorry.
