Data logging equipment usually sits unused in a cupboard in the preproom
Whilst visiting schools this week, I was reminded that many science departments have data logging equipment sitting on shelfves or locked in cupboards - and it seems that the least use is taking palce within chemistry based lessons.
Is this correct? What is the availability and use of data logging equipment like in your department?
If equipment is not being used, why is this?
Is it that data logging is now old hat, with iPads and mobile technology replacing it? Or is there a need to share examples of experiments and investigations which benefit from the use of data logging equipment?
Let me know what you think...and if you make use of data logging equipment in chemistry, share your ideas.
If you have equipment that is not being used, would you be interested in getting your pupils to collaborate with others across the country to conduct a series of research activities? If so, let me know.
