Journal Cover The Science Teacher

December 2015

In the classic 1980s Back to the Future films, the imagined world of 2015 contained an array of fantastic new technologies, from flying cars and hovering skateboards to flat panel televisions and video chat systems. We don't yet have flying cars or hoverboards, but if the films' characters could have time-travelled to a real 2015 science classroom, they would have been amazed by the technologies actually available to today's teachers, tools unimaginable 30 years—or even a decade—ago. This issue describes some of these new technologies: GIS mapping tools to plot bird diversity, digital probeware to study the greenhouse effect, online simulations to investigate DNA and energy, and even cell phones as digital sensors to explore Newton's laws of motion.
