Class Activity – Science Experiments

Gaby Charmont Blog

The Activity: A science experiment where students are able to practice The Scientific Method and truly learn the process. This activity is aimed to urge students to think scientifically in order to design and test their experiment with a good degree of accuracy. To describe their process, students will use 30hands Pro to reiterate the steps in their experiment through the audio tool and display photos on each slide simultaneously. The Level: This activity can be a planned experiment geared towards younger students or could be a challenge activity for older students by allowing them to complete an experiment of their own design. They will each come up with their own hypothesis, follow or design a procedure, and formulate conclusions based off of data collected. This will allow each student to explore and utilize the scientific method in order to complete experiments. The Procedure: Show this sample video to your Students to spark some ideas and have them run their own experiments. Students can map their slides with respect to the scientific method, plus making additional slides for each step of the procedure. Have your Students take a photo of each step before they complete it and their 30hands Video will be clear and outline their procedure. Students will be able to form conclusions based off of their data collection and could make suggestions on how they would improve their experiment or better test their hypothesis. Students will obtain practice with scientific experiments and simultaneously test the power of iterative creativity …

Class Activity – Language Learning with 30hands Pro!

Moia Rowsome Blog

Language Teachers ahoy! Our Class Activity for this week is especially for you. We have a fun idea to get your students speaking the target language in class with 30hands Pro! The Activity: Your students will conduct an interview in pairs in their target language and record it in 30hands Pro. It’s a great way to get them speaking and interacting in the language, and it gives you some fun material to assess them and /or give helpful feedback on their language use. The Level: Any – it is customizable to suit your class’s needs and level. The Procedure: Set the students up in pairs. Together, they can choose what role each person is going to play – the interviewer or the interviewee. The interview can be on any topic they have been learning in class such as their hobbies, their school or their family to name a few. If their level is advanced, they could even conduct an interview for a new job! In their pairs they can write a quick script for their interview questions and answers. They can practise it together and when they are ready, get to recording their interviews! They can do this easily by using the video function in 30hands Pro. Perhaps they’ll want to take some photos and import some images and narrate over it? They can do that too! Depending on what you have covered already and the level of your learners, you may want to pre-teach some relevant language components first. These could include question words, formal and informal language, …
