Session Description

Have you ever been on a field trip? Have you wanted to extend student learning via technology? This presentation is going to provide you with some tools that were used when ninth grade students were brought to Shanghai Disney Resort for a day of physics and magic! We focused on the use of mobile apps and students were actually required to bring their phones. Notably we used WeChat for communication, Vidometer to record video and g-force at the same time, and we used NCSC MyTech as an accelerometer recording device. I will also share a little bit of my journey in making a custom app that was to be used in conjunction with paper packets.

This is a journey of learning to code and what apps we used when we went to Disney in Spring of 2017.
