Being an elementary school teacher, working on a science endorsement, and getting ready to combine the two for a revamp of our 5th-grade science education I set out first and foremost to see what cool new apps I might be able to use to enhance our science curriculum.
My search led me to the science journal app. This is a free app that makes excellent use of onboard features in your chrome book and android phone, features you may not have even been aware were available.
Like many journaling apps, it lets you take notes and add pictures to experiment journals that you can then share via email and social media. Where it gets curious and brings in the wonder is its use of your devices tools that sense light, motion, magnetic fields, and sound.
Not sure what you can apply this to or how this could be implemented? Check out the experiments list on their website:
Getting started with it is easy. Google provides plenty of information on how to get things up and running. I also found Science Buddies to have great documentation as well.
