What is the Data logging?
The concept of data logging is widely
spread even if you don't know the meaning of it.
Every device that you can see in the surroundings
logs data corresponding to the purpose when you
turn on the TV, use a computer or patients are examined
in the hospital.
Same as this, science that deals
with real world is same in the way of data logging.
The scientists use computers that can easily measure
very fast or slow physical change compared to
the traditional way and promptly record or analyze
it. We call this kind of way MBL
Like this, as
we can do experiment very effectively if we use
computers, we can do discuss and more researches
in remaining time. In order words, we can analyze
experiment results promptly through data logging
in real time and the results of graph, so we can
remarkably increase the scientific ability of
the scientists or students who conduct this.
As a reference, there is this
ICT education course in the key stage 2 to 4 of
England education course. MBL is composed of 3
main areas for scientific data logging and recording.
