Project Idea

November 9, 2007

So I have been working on a project that will allow me to teach some of the electrical lesson in my physics course at a distance.

The topics that I want to concentrate on are the topics of DC circuits and electricity production. The goal of the instruction will be assessed by students designing and building a circuit. To do this they need to understand how electricity is produced and how changing circuits layout will affect the flow of the electrons.

To achieve this I will use the Phet java applets here developed  by the university of Colorado at Boulder. I will also use blogs to pose questions and allow interactions and  movies to show students example phenomenon to aid in their learning.

So off I go searching for valid movies, wish me luck!
