Greenlawn, Long Island (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
MurderAtOldFields.com, a breakthrough web-based tool for learning Forensic Science, was launched at the most recent NSTA (National Science Teachers Association) national conference in San Antonio, Texas on April 11–14, 2013.
This online lab activity is a pioneering approach for teachers and students to learn the science of forensics through an objective-based, learning-by-discovery educational tool.
"This approach is no longer the "future" of science learning, it is the "now" of science learning," said John J. Stevens of Bullfrog Communications, the developer of MurderAtOldFields.com.
- Lessons that teach the real science of forensics according to National Science Education Content Standards
- Quizzes auto-graded to quickly and easily gauge a student’s mastery of the science lessons
- Discovery of the evidence at the 3D crime scene of a historically-accurate rural American 19th Century farmhouse
- Lab activities to analyse evidence, record data and apply the scientific method to solve problems through a compelling and engaging use of the most advanced online tools available
- Easy-to-use accounts where students can assess their results and teachers can monitor student performance; Teachers can choose to enable some or all of the lab activities to accommodate the class schedule and help students learn through discovery, at their own pace.
Meticulously crafted to reflect the facts of this long cold case, MurderAtOldFields.com is also an ideal interdisciplinary/cross-curricular learning experience, with a rich immersion in American history and a strong narrative of the crime and the time.
Along with the real-world lab activity kit available through Ward's Natural Science, MurderAtOldFields.com provides complete flexibility for teachers to work in the lab at school, or on the computer either at school or at home.
The function is compatible with the two most recent versions of all major browsers - including Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Opera - and is designed to perform well on iPads.
