After demonstrating the Labdisc all over the world, Andrew Rhodes, ADE and Director of Technology at the International School Norway, chose to showcase a series of three Labdisc and iPad experiments during BETT 2013. His session, aimed at middle to high school educators, demonstrated how the Labdisc and iPad can be smoothly integrated into the classroom workflow.
The Labdisc colorimeter sensor was used, together with the iPad’s spreadsheet and presentations programs to record the results of the experiment and write up an IB/A level chemistry experiment. The built-in motion sensor demonstrated Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion – free fall acceleration. The session ended with the human body – the heart and circulation being explored with the heart rate sensor.
Andrew told us “I think the session really showcased how the Labdisc can be a truly versatile tool for schools at all levels who are working with iPads.”
Andrew’s twice daily demonstrations always ended with a strong flow of educators to the Globisens booth, eager to learn more.
Rebecca Citrin, Head of Marketing for Globisens explained: “The Labdisc was a huge hit at BETT with educators who are using iPads in the classroom. They’re looking for science content that can allow them to get the maximum STEM benefit out of their technology investment.
Our science solution not only leverages the pedagogic potential of the iPad, but incorporates an equally innovative, compact and mobile science learning approach with the Labdisc.”
