Though the difficulties many students face when learning chemistry have been known and explored for years, there is no consent on how best to assist and assess their learning. Over the last ten years, the availability of a range of technological innovations that are aimed to improve student learning and assessment has made the choice of teaching and assessment strategies more complicated. Many teachers are quickly adopting new technologies in teaching and assessment though their impacts have not yet been broadly studied. Many researchers have investigated the use of particular technologies in aspects of their teaching and assessment, and this ebook contributes to a growing body of literature that lets some generalizations to be drawn. Most importantly, particular strategies are described in detail making it possible for others to take advantage of the learning experiences and enabling practitioners to adopt the practice best suited to their needs.
General tools for chemistry education range from tailored websites (including Web 2.0 interactive features), to enhancing the use of flipped classrooms, to the application of commercial packages in a coherent manner. Technology and Assessment Strategies for Improving Student Learning in Chemistry, (PDF) focuses on these aspects of using technology directly in teaching chemistry. One area of large interest in chemistry education is the role of the teaching laboratory and how best to improve laboratory learning. The use of animations, short videos, and best assessment practices are also included. The chapters in the ebook reflect the somewhat different teaching contexts of the countries in which the authors work.
