LabLearner Teacher Professional Development
The content of this page and its links replicate the content of the teacher professional development that was presented for your school at the time of LabLearner implementation. If you missed that TPD event at the time or have joined the faculty since the initial TPD, simply review the links below.
Metrics and Lab Skills
One of the most important aspects of LabLearner teacher professional development is assuring that all teachers are familiar with both the metric system and how basic measurements of metric quantities are performed in the lab. Below are the key aspects of metrics and lab skills. A trip to the LabLearner lab will permit you to quickly go over the actual hands-on operation of all of the tools necessary for measures of length, mass, and volume used in the LabLearner curriculum. In addition, information for some equipment specific for middle school are also provided below.
In addition to the hands-on lessons and practice for you provided in the links below, remember that you may also want to use your Procedural Toolboxes as well. Both the Elementary Procedural Toolbox and the Middle School Procedural Toolbox are available for your use and download.
