OneNote Classroom in 7 and 8 grade physics
Inga Karjalainen, Secondary School teacher (mathematics, physics and chemistry)
Name of school
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: To motivate the students to study physics.
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: Studying material was shared in OneNote Classroom (PowerPoint presentations, videolinks, Quizlet flashcards, phET simulations).
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).
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).
OneNote Classroom is a useful tool in sharing materials, ideas, instructions etc.
Using OneNote Classroom helps students to take more responsibility of their learning.
Phenomenon- and project-based studies will be an essential part of the new curriculum.
It’s fun to study physics when you understand it better.
