“Using Online Video Pre-labs: Effects on Chemistry Student
Participation and Attitudes”
Christopher Koutros, Oliver Ames High School

How do your students prepare for lab? This presentation will discuss past and present strategies to leverage video and online tools for lab prep in high school and college. A recent action research case study explored the impacts of an online pre-lab video assigned to high school students. Student attitudes and feedback about the pre-lab will be reported. As a take-away, attendees will learn how to implement pre-lab videos in their own classrooms and design around potential pitfalls.

“Integrating Technology in Chemistry”
Group Panel Discussion

A panel of high school chemistry teachers will discuss the ways they have used technology in their day-to-day teaching in both 1:1 and BYOD (bring your own device) schools. This interactive discussion will cover technology use for teachers at all technology comfort levels. Technology is not just about probe-ware and simulations. The panel will cover classroom routines, assessment tools, and building student buy-in.

PDPs available to attendees.
