Title

Sciphile.org — an Online Science Library for Teachers

Submission Type

Event

Abstract

Prof. Blaylock will demonstrate a website (http://sciphile.org) he has developed to help teachers and parents teach science. The site hosts a growing library of short science activities and lessons, which strive to complement traditional lectures with engaging in-class materials. For college teachers, the site offers a number of opportunities. At the most basic level, it can be source of inspiration for their own courses and a place to publish and share teaching materials they develop. Instructors can also use Sciphile.org as a laboratory for college students to contribute to a shared body of science education resources. Students can create materials, share them privately with instructors, and later submit them for general publication if they like. By publishing their work, students have the opportunity to receive public feedback and commentary and produce work with a legacy beyond the confines of the university course. Sciphile.org also allows several authors to collaborate on the same work, providing opportunities for group projects.
