An article I have posted on LinkedIn about my use of a suite of professional astronomical telescopes around the world to have students do real hands on astronomy.

I have now published my website aimed at teachers. It still has some work to do but I think I have done enough for it to be live. I will eventually add blog posts to it as well:

Here is a diagram I made using 'lucid chart' on Design Thinking & action research incorporating Concept-Knowledge (C-K) theory. Like all diagrams it has limits (design thinking is not just cyclical). A place you might start on the diagram is 'empathise' but not necessarily.   I have published it through flickr as creative commons non-commercial use. If you would like to use the diagram please contact me for permission first. Happy to accept any useful suggestions for improvement too.

Thanks to Simon Crook for sharing the article 'Students with laptops did better in HSC science'

http://theconversation.com/students-with-laptops-did-better-in-hsc-science-46326

The article was from 'The Conversation' outlining quantitative research on the impact of 1:1 laptops on student attainment in the sciences, published recently in well-ranked international journals as part of his PhD.

I read this with great interest and shared the link with all my science colleagues. I have used computers with my own Physics students using simulations and spreadsheets for graphing. I have used Google sheets, for example, to make the gathering of data much faster and efficient and then transferred the data to excel for graphing. I have also used PhET simulations as part of assessment tasks including the one on the Photoelectric effect. I have also used a simulation from 'Project CLEA' for an assessment tasks on the mass of Jupiter. Such simulations allow students to see phenomena that is otherwise hidden making it much easier to learn. As such I am not surprised that Physics students had the most cognitive gain from using laptops in such a way.
