Greetings. I curate the Connected PD blog for the National Repository of Online Courses (NROC). I'm working on letting more educators know about the Open Education Resource created by NROC called HippoCampus.org--
I would be glad to help in any way I can. I have a lot of experience with Inquiry-based science in the classroom. There is an increasing wealth of information and online website to facilitiate inquiry-based science education initiatives in the classroom. I would recommend solicitating collaborative science projects related to monitoring physical and chemical aspects of your local environment. You can gather research data and post online to share with students throughout the world. Check out www.thinkquest.org.
Hello Dan McDowell
I would suggest checking out www.ThinkQuest.orgby Oracle Corporation. It is an excellent Internet technololgy tool for any subject. You can have your students connect and collaborate with other students and teachers world-wide. It is definitely a 21st century education asset that pays big learning dividends in reading, writng and critical thinking. I have utilized its capacity for over two years in the high school science classroom and I give a firm thumbs up!
I'm actually a social science teacher who also does a lot of tech staff development. I have a couple workshops coming up with some high school science teachers and I was wondering if anyone had some Web 2.0 tools that they use in their science classes - Bio, Chem, Physicals, general science, etc. Thanks!

I am faced with a problem that doesn't normally happen to Chemistry teachers. I have too many students signing up for Chemistry II. I will have more students in two sections of Chemistry II than I have ever had before, 26 students each. My classroom only has lab stations for 24 students and not the best equipment. I am hoping to use some cooperative learning centers and maybe have stations of activities. Does anyone have any good resources for cooperative learning in upper level science courses?
