iLog Junior data logging software

Posted in Primary Software

The natural successor to Junior Datalogging Insight, iLOG Junior takes Primary Datalogging to a new level. A host of experiments can quickly be conducted using data-logging interfaces or sensors, and using it on an interactive whiteboard, a whole class can observe experimental results.

iLOG Junior is designed to make data-logging attractive, fun and rewarding for pupils. 

The software can be used to collect, display and analyse live data as well as previously collected data from a remote interface. It works with many different sensor inputs, including Temperature, Light, Sound, Motion, Humidity, Voltage and Current. 

iLOG Junior supports over 40 data-logging interfaces – old and new - helping you maximise the effectiveness of your existing hardware. The program automatically identifies the type of interface used and the connected sensors.

A unique movie window lets you link the data, or the sensors, to engaging animations that appeal to younger children. Using these animations pupils can be motivated to explore the use of sensors imaginatively; to contemplate the meaning of graphs, shapes, patterns & trends and use measurement to investigate science. 

Using the new ‘virtual logger’ pupils can simulate logging onscreen - drawing data from a built-in library of sample files or from online sources - without the need for hardware.

iLOG Junior is supported by a wealth of resources to help pupils gain confidence using the software. 

The Welcome Wizard, unique to iLOG Junior, helps pupils and teachers get results with minimum of fuss: setting up experiments, collecting and observing data, measuring motion and animating cartoon movies. It also contains a series of demonstration videos. 

The software incorporates an extensive library of sample files:

  • 24 set-up files - complete with onscreen instructions - allowing pupils to get started with experiments quickly.
  • 20 sample data files - useful for practice in using the analysis tools and interpreting data.  Example topics include: Temperature Control, Speed and Timing, Colour and Light Reflection, Sound Absorption and more.
  • 16 cartoon movie files – fun activities for learning to use sensors and to understand graphs.
