This latest movie from the Globisens filmed experiment series explores "Free Fall". Using the Labdisc built-in motion sensor and a ping pong ball to measure Newton's 2nd Law, exploring free fall acceleration
This month we talked to Yuvalal Liron, the Globisens software creator with 30 years programming experience to understand the philosophy behind the GlobiLab for iPad platform. He explained to us how the GlobiLab and Labdisc system perfectly echo the iOS principles.
Many science teachers are struggling to find appropriate technology that will be easy to use and motivate their students. Complicated, bulky data loggers that connect by cable to various sensors and accessories are not a realistic option when trying to engage young students in hands-on activity.
Due for release in Q2, 2012, this feature wirelessly connects 8 Labdiscs to a single teacher's computer which then communicates with the class interactive board. Leveraging existing technology and removing the need to buy more computers, the compact, cable-free Labdisc transforms the class into a digital science lab with 8 stations for hands-on experimentation and collaborative learning.
Globisens first exhibited the Labdisc at BETT this year and the reception was overwhelming with intense interest from educators and leading market players alike. Globisens was flooded with requests for collaboration from every corner of the education market including science simulations, data logging, interactive boards and content software.
