Displaying Science Fair Projects


This year, my school would the students to celebrate science week by having the students complete a science fair project. It will be their first time doing this kind of project to display in the hall for parents and the community.

The science committee has talked about showing our staff how to go about displaying a science fair project. Thus far, googling science fair projects has come up with informative websites on the process and display ideas. The displays I have seen are all on cardboard and paper.

Tim Holt, has shared an alternative way to display science fair projects using current technology available, in this video. I will show this video to the science committee when it's time to discuss our Fair.

Teachers assess for understanding over the course of the semester and do not use assessment as the end product. The end product, for example, is the meeting of a person's or community's need.

This slideshow, by David Truss has made me think about how I teach the students in my class. At work we talk a lot about scaffolding in order to teach outcomes so we are on the right track.

This presentation also helps me to think about how to use technology in the classroom. Not just as a checklist to show that I have introduced this web2.0 tool or that web2.0 tool but to choose effectively, depending on student outcomes, so the learning is authentic.
