This lesson makes great use of technology to teach a topic that can be very challenging for students. The use of labs, videos, simulations, and other online activities provide hands on methods of helping students understand the concepts. The addition of the use of Google Docs, a class blog, and the promethian board make this a technology rich lesson. On the other hand, everything seems clear, organized, and extremely cohesive. With all of the variety in the ways the information is presented to students, they will be kept interested and focused on the tasks at hand.
