Article: What Is Data Logging

General


“Critical thinking, problem-solving skills and develop an understanding of the complex natural world around us”


A simple description of data logging would state that it is a method of capturing sensor data over a given time, however, we know that it’s much more than this; the process of data logging is a visual learning experience that allows teachers to engage with students through science.

A data logger is a mechanism or a tool that changes the way children see the world around them; it changes students’ perceptions by allowing them to understand and make informed decisions through scientific experimentation.

When we start to explore why science is part of the national curriculum it clearly defines that it teaches students critical thinking, problem-solving skills and to develop an understanding of the complex natural world around them.

As you can see, adopting data logging into your science lessons is more than just a method of capturing data!

As specialists in data logging, we know what it takes to ensure teachers and students have the right tools that meet with the requirements of the national curriculum.

Data logging makes the invisible visible; a foundation of why we encourage students to learn science and engage in scientific activities as a core life skill.
