Geology[edit]

Exploring the geological times with "le Calendrier Géologique" (Geological Calendar)[edit]

By turning "time buttons", it is possible to get informations among geological times (biosphere, tectonic, climate…). http://cat.upatras.gr/en/Lyon_ICT_Example_1

Learning the principles of relative chronology with CHRONOCOUPE[edit]

The students’ tasks consisted in reproducing different images of geological cuts with Chronocoupe, a software which allows simulating the results of geological events. http://cat.upatras.gr/en/Lyon_ICT_Example_2

Explo Multimedial[edit]

ExploMultimedial is a constructivist learning environment currently dealing with physics units based on optics. These units are designed to foster the motivation of both, boys and girls equally and keep up strong interdisciplinary connections with biology. The software focuses on real life experiments assisted by the computer. The software also tries to foster cooperative learning by asking two (or more) students to work together – strengthening communicative skills and learning processes. http://cat.upatras.gr/en/Heidelberg_ICT_Example

EPR-Simulator (Excel based)[edit]

The entanglement of two photons is an approved voucher for quantum theory. The experiments are interesting but not usable at school. The sheet provides a simulation which is not easy but comprehensible in each detail (white box). http://cat.upatras.gr/en/Gmuend_ICT_Example_1

Gas Properties[edit]

The behavior of a gas can be observed as several parameters were changed. http://cat.upatras.gr/en/Gmuend_ICT_Example_2

Denkwerkstatt-Physik (Think-Tank Physics)[edit]

Brain-teasers related to physics. One will come across questions which could also encounter daily life. The user can choose between different offers which appeal interesting to herself or himself to get closer to the solution. http://cat.upatras.gr/en/Gmuend_ICT_Example_3

Simple electricity experiments - Web based learning Environment[edit]

We press a switch and we turn the lights on. How is this possible to be happening? Let's construct a simple circuit. Let's improve a bit the simple circuit we just created. Can we connect more light bulbs? If yes, in how many different ways can we do that? What do we mean by "induction"? How does an electromagnet work? What is electricity? How do we produce electricity? How is electricity coming to our houses? What is the function of a transformer? http://cat.upatras.gr/en/Patras_ICT_Example_1

Hydrostatic pressure and buoyancy force[edit]

Cmap - Concept Maps[edit]

Concept maps are effective in representing and communicating knowledge. They help students to organise their thinking and to summarise subjects of study. From an educational perspective, a growing body of research indicates that the use of concept maps can facilitate meaningful learning. http://cat.upatras.gr/en/Helsinki_ICT_Example_1

Use of Microcomputer-Based Laboratory (MBL)[edit]

Microcomputer-Based Laboratory (MBL) (in UK data-logging) tool is a combination of the hardware and software that are used for collecting data (data acquisition) using sensors/probes (such as temperature or pH sensors) connected to a microcomputer through an interface. These collected data can be analysed and displayed in graphic form, in real or delayed time. http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=fi&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.edu.helsinki.fi%2Fmalu%2Fkirjasto%2Fmittausautomaatio%2F&act=url
