Data Logging

A Dynamic Way to Teach Science – Exclusive to Timstar

05/10/2020

The possibilities for data logging within education are endless. Whether it is investigating the effect of light on photosynthesis or logging temperature changes over time, Timstar has a considered range of data loggers that can support scientific enquiry, can be integrated into required practicals,  or used to further enhance the learning experience.

‘Using this equipment helps to bring science alive and develops student’s confidence with using technology that is different from what they usual encounter in class.’

So what are the educational benefits of data logging?

Our anecdotal evidence suggests that data logging assists students to take their science work more seriously. They also become more aware of the need to take accurate measurements when working on investigations. Another benefit was that their understanding of graphs and reporting data and their findings improved quickly when seeing ‘science’ in real time.

  • Further Benefits

  • Develop student’s higher order thinking skills.

  • Encourage their science argumentation skills.

  • Students work like ‘real’ scientists.

  • Inquiry based learning.

  • Develop other skills such as numeracy and literacy.

  • Works very well with EAL students.

  • Links the computing and science curriculum.

More efficient data logging…

The Edu-logger provides better processing and presentation of results. The philosophy behind Edu-Logger’s ‘plug and play’ technology is based on each sensor’s ability to store its own data due to an internal flash memory chip and micro-controller in each plastic Edu-Logger body.

The data collected from experiments can be processed by its specialist software (suitable for Windows and Mac) and it sends the data in digital form to a viewer unit, a PC, or a tablet. The most intuitive, rich, and friendly Edu-Logger software to date, and application for browsers including: On-Line mode, Off-Line mode, tables, graphs, data analysis, double-axis set up, statistic operations, mathematical operations.

The software has been designed to work with future technologies, avoiding costly upgrades and equipment obsolescence.
