I-pads really do offer us a wonderful tool to enhance students’ experiences in class. Every high school chemistry class includes a “flame test lab” and if you remember this from your own education, you may have a pleasant association. What high school student does not love fire and colors and the “ooh, aahh!” sensation?
This time around, my students had the chance to do this lab a new way, utilizing I-pads to record their results! They loved the experiment itself of course, but they also enjoyed taking pictures and using “Notability” to put together their reports, which fairly glowed with photographs of different colored flames!
