Exploring the use of iPads to Investigate Forces and Motion in an Elementary Science Methods Course

This research article discusses how to use technology, specifically iPads, to increase engagement of science lessons. It highlights a research study that was conducted at Appalachian State University in an elementary education methods course and recorded commentary of the pre-service teachers in this course. They discussed the benefits of using the iPad to record data, create images to describe their research, and how the iPad can be used for assessment. This is a great resource for all pre-service teachers because the research was conducted by professors working with other pre-service teachers. It proves how easy it can be to incorporate technology into science lessons as well as the benefit to the overall engagement of the lessons. Overall, this informative article helps to explain how to enhance inquiry-based science lessons by using technology, an increasingly useful tool in classrooms everywhere.
