Using LabCamera, users simply point their camera at what they would like to observe or just load a pre-recorded video and make their measurements and analysis on it. There are seven modules which enable classroom scientists to carry out observations, experiments and measurements. The app allows pupils to record time-lapse videos to observe the slow processes in nature, track objects, draw and analyze motion diagrams in real time, reveal the unseen patterns in motion, log data and eventurn their cameras into a microscope and measure the size of a cell.
“With LabCamera students are able to work as a group,” said Kyle Tidwell of Portland State University. “That collaborative effort brought about more questions which gave them a richer, deeper, more empowered learning experience.”
Jeremy Burnett, CTL’s director of IT and Engineering: “We’re really excited to provide this strong set of STEM tools at no extra cost, enhancing curriculum and reducing the need for costly laboratory equipment.”
The resources help teachers to integrate technology into their lessons, and feature fully detailed lesson plans with sample videos and step-by-step descriptions on how to conduct the experiment. Users are encouraged to build them directly into their lesson or just get inspired and create their own ones!
