Title

OneNote Classroom in 7 and 8 grade physics

Author

Inga Karjalainen, Secondary School teacher (mathematics, physics and chemistry)

Name of school

Myllytulli School

Description

We have about 550 pupils in Myllytulli school. They are 7-15 years old. We have two small classes where studies less than ten pupils with different needs of support. Our specialities are art classes.

Goals

Goals: To motivate the students to study physics.

Methods

Methods: The teacher shares information by using OneNote Classroom.

The students use content library as a digital notebook where they can do their homework.

The students use collaboration space to make group work for example about the laws of Newton.

Materials

Materials: Studying material was shared in OneNote Classroom (PowerPoint presentations, videolinks, Quizlet flashcards, phET simulations).

Assessment

Assessment: Two written tests.

Self-evaluation where the students reflected their own work and learning plus the methods used during the course. In self-assessment the students used digital tool (Qridi).

ICT

With the help of phET simulations (Colorado University) the students were able to test the theories they had learned in practice (for example pendulum Lab).
