Description: Virtual labs can be used to augment or replace hands-on lab investigations if you:
- have a limited amount of glassware, tools, and measuring devices available in the lab.
- have no lab technician and you need assistance in preparing for your experiments.
- find it difficult and costly to ship the standard chemicals and other specialty materials.
- want to incorporate more computer-based activities info your classroom.
As an online teacher for LEARN, I simultaneously teach students that are in multiple locations around the province. Some of them are in remote communities. Some of them are in small urban schools. Students are doing labs without me being physically present to support and supervise them. I will introduce to you some creative tools for providing students with authentic lab experiences even in the face of these challenges.
