Gümnaasiumibioloogia õppekava 1., 2. ja 3. kursuse (IV kooliaste) teemadele vastavate küsimuste koostamisel on silmas peetud õpilase kõrgemate mõtlemistasandite arendamist, aga ka põnevama ja mõtlemapaneva teabe lisamist. Nii oodatakse küsimustepanga ülesannete lahendajalt infost arusaamise, selle rakendamise ja seostamise, analüüsimise ja sünteesimise ning bioloogiliste protsesside toimumiskäigu prognoosimisoskust.
Kõrv loodusesse - loodushelid ja helid looduses
Loodushelid ja helid looduses. Veebilehed info ja illustratsioonidega vastavatest liikidest, võimalik kuulata helindeid. Kõrv loodusesse kasutab kahte erinevat kokkusurutud helifaili formaati: mp3 ja real audio. Üldjuhul võimaldab mp3-formaat paremat kvaliteeti, kuid faili maht on suur. Real audio on väiksema failimahuga, kuid sellega kaasneb kehvem kvaliteet. Aeglase ühenduse korral on seetõttu otstarbekam valida real audio helindid. Kiirema ühenduse korral tasub kuulata parema kvalitee

TÜ Loodusteadusliku hariduse lektoraadi vastavatel kursustel (Loodusteaduste visualiseerimine) osalenud õpetajate koostatud interaktiivsed mudelid bioloogiliste protsesside tundmaõppimiseks. Kuigi mudeleid ei saa lugeda lõplikult viimistletuks, on nad õppeprotsessi visualiseerimiseks asjakohased: kasvõi ideede saamiseks. Kasutajal on soovitav fail enne oma arvutisse salvestada ning vajadusel täiendada.
