Using Technology to Teach Moles


Using Technology to Teach Moles

Logo for Using Technology to Teach Moles
This lesson plan is about converting mass to moles.  The teacher should make a video or a photostory of a demonstration converting an amount of a substance in grams to moles.  For an assessment and an opportunity for students to collaborate the teacher should set up a Google Doc with a couple example conversion problems.

Like I said before, teaching moles is a very difficult concept for students to learn.  I think the video is a great resource for students along with your stair.  I also like how the students are working independently on what they need to be working on.

Given that math can be a difficult concept for many students, your sequencing of the lesson seems very appropriate. The video is a great way for students to see and hear the lesson. If they need to see or hear it again they can do it as many times as they need to without holding other students back. Google Docs is a great way for students to collaborate with one another and share information. Teaching others is the best way to know you learned material, by using Google Docs, students will have the confidence to know they learned how to calculate moles. As a teacher, you can see who participated as well.

Technical Remarks:

In order to make this a more social assignment, students could blog about what they learned and reply to another student’s response.

I like the way you have set up the plan for teaching about moles. You have some type of mixed classroom and students are not all working on the same subject. Since you have a lot of independent learning, the technology is a great way to introduce the subject. The videos would be an excellent way to show the students how to do the calculations and show them the amount of substance you are calculating. Your stair project is a nice piece for this lesson. If you add a video, the learning experience would help all types of learners. Some need to hear about it, some need to see it, and some need to read it. Your lesson would acomplish all of these needs with the video accomponied by your stair.

Technical Remarks:

For the socialization aspect, if you had some students in class working on chemistry, they could work together to calculate some problems then collaborate on some questions about the process. My other suggestion would be to have some type of discussion board on a Wiki that the students could have some discissons on about the caculation of moles and what it means.
