INTERACTIVE DEMONSTRATION EXPERIMENTS
with digital media

Student-oriented demonstration experiments - is that possible?  We say: YES.

Traditional teacher-centred lessons (classes) are often criticised for not involving the students sufficiently. But just because demonstration experiments are performed in front of the entire class and by the teacher, this teaching situation is not the same as a purely teacher-centred frontal teaching. Of course, demonstration experiments are an integral part of the classroom for a variety of reasons - some experiments are too dangerous in the hands of students, others are too complex and sometimes, unfortunately, the cost factor also plays a role.

Using a QR code, students can monitor the measurement directly on their smartphone or tablet and then analyse the measured values themselves

CASSY Lab 2 is the all-round carefree software and ideal for measuring and analysing in simple experiments as well as in highly complex experiments. Despite the wide range of functionalities, CASSY Lab 2 is easy to use and does not require a long training period due to a "Plug and Play" function and integrated experiment examples.

For a long time it has been possible to display the computer screen, which can be seen on the CASSY Lab 2, on an interactive whiteboard.  In this way, students can easily follow the measurements. With the sharing function, CASSY Lab 2 now supports the learning process even more. The teacher generates a QR code in CASSY Lab 2, which the students can easily scan from the whiteboard with their tablets and smartphones from their desk. The students' mobile devices only need to be in the same network as the teacher's PC (e.g. school WiFi).

The measurement is displayed in the browser of the tablets and smartphones in real time. The measured value display is shown immediately. Using a menu, your students can easily switch back and forth between this, a table display or a diagram. In this way, the students are involved in the measurement step by step from their desk and the lesson (class) receives a completely new attention for the students.

      

 

After storing the measured values in CASSY Lab 2, the measured values can be downloaded from the tablets and smartphones and each student can then analyse the experiment. Common programs such as Excel can be used for this purpose or the students can use the free demo version of CASSY Lab 2 for the analysis of the data - for example as homework assignment.

The sharing function of CASSY Lab 2 allows the student to follow the measurement on his tablet / smartphone and the beamer can be used to display other information.

USE THE CASSY APP FOR DEMONSTRATION

The CASSY app can also be used for demonstration of experiments to a whole class of course. Simply plug the WiFi adapter into your first generation Sensor-CASSY or the newer Sensor-CASSY 2.


Students can follow measurements in full view on the interactive whiteboard and in real time. You just have to connect a tablet computer to a projector. Results of measurements can be saved and made available to all the students to use CASSY app on their own tablets. This means that students can be actively involved even in demonstration experiments and can experience the experiments in a different way to simply being told by a teacher at the front of the class.

We would like to show you two more possible insights how you might configure your interaction with the CASSY app:

  • Students could save an especially successful measurement to a central location and subsequently work through it with the teacher and the whole class with the help of the interactive whiteboard. Conversely, measurements which haven't worked well could be discussed so that conclusions can be drawn about what went wrong with the experiment.
  • During an experiment measurements can be made by one student with the help of Mobile-CASSY 2 WiFi while another student films them with a tablet computer. Measurement results can then be loaded subsequently by means of the CASSY app.
