Gizmos “allow students to easily experiment and test new ideas”

“I love the Gizmos I’ve used so far. They provide a great way to enhance student learning. I especially love the data collection features offered in the Gizmos. They provide a structured way for students to collect and analyze data. Seeing graphic representations of data collected at a mouse click allows all students to easily identify patterns and trends. The Gizmos incorporate most of the strands of the new science standards and provide a way to allow students to work individually or cooperatively to understand concepts. They allow students to easily experiment and test new ideas using an interactive medium. The ability to form hypothesis and test them is fundamental to the understanding science. The professional development provided was excellent. It inspired me to develop more student-centered collaborative learning experiences using the Gizmos.”
