  • 1. Maker Education, Social Media and Creative Learning in the Biosciences: giving students choice TWEET @ka81 Caroline Keep SEB London: Teaching and Communicating Science in a Digital Age 15-17th Dec #SEBEd14 @SEBiologyHEdW rks
  • 2. Fighting the tide of R.E.P.S. and C.A.V.Es?
  • 3. An alternative teaching and learning universe ‘Who-topia’:
  • 4. The T.A.R.D.I.S effect A peak through the wormhole
  • 5. Providing Choice
  • 6. Forget timetables… let students learn when THEY want to (n= 691 posts)
  • 7. Forget the lecture hall…let students learn on the move…
  • 8. Forget R.E.P.S We use TASKPRODS and let students choose how they wish to show their learning
  • 9. Why is this important?
  • 10. It also encourages creativity… “I call this piece “Frequency Histogram with Guinea Pig”
  • 11. Stats Guides
  • 12. Stats Video Guide
  • 13. Data Collection: DIY experiments / observational studies The output Result
  • 14. Silence is not golden: vocalisations help in pain relief Testing for normality Repeated measures Swearing can help...
  • 15. Vodka Jelly experiments: setting time and effects on reaction time after consumption
  • 16. The independent T Test was carried out and there was a significant difference in the mean volume (cm3) of gummy bears in water (n=10) and in salt water (n=10) (t9.023 = 15.002, P<0.001). The mean (±SE) volume of gummy bears in water and salt water were 19.04 ± 0.99 and 2.14 ± 0.04 (cm3) .
  • 17. Static Electricity: does hair length affect how far you can move a coke can? Figure 1: The relationship between hair length (cm) and the distance travelled (cm) after rubbing a balloon against the hair and using the static to push the can.
  • 18. Killing Time... Running Time The Movies
  • 19. How to collect data in your sleep...
  • 20. A world of utility apps & mods

  • 39. The students’ views “It was awesome! Working in a group was fun as we were able to use each other’s skills to our advantage.” “I really enjoyed having the freedom to work on my stats in my own time... the task set was more of a fun activity than an assignment! I feel I learned a lot more than I would have done from lectures at 9am.” “I have loved how it’s given more scope to take charge of my own work and work under my own steam” “Stats made so much more sense in the context of using actual data we had collected.” “I have thoroughly enjoyed this module as being able to carry out a project has made learning and practicing statistics and SPSS so much easier
