Dean Baird: The Blog of Phyz

We've all know those teachers that have their lesson plans set in stone from year to year. I met one once while I was still student teaching that had a ledger filled with his lecture notes, discussion questions, etc.

Jacobs Physics

On one hand, Aaron saw that university physics professors -- the ones who are ultimately responsible for awarding credit for AP exams -- were "pleased at the depth of knowledge that the test assessed." That's correct.

The Flipping Physics Blog

The many ramblings of jonathan thomas-palmer about flipping physics.

Many aspects of learning require the ability to visualize - the structure of the cell, the interconnected relationships of historical figures, the forces on a figure skater, the shape of a population distribution graph. But students rarely have the opportunity to create their own visualizations - a critical part of learning.

If you don't already know, Flappy Bird is the hot new mobile game right now. The premise is simple: navigate the bird through the gaps between the green pipes. Tapping the screen gives a slight upward impulse to the bird. Stop tapping and the bird plummets to the ground.

Science Learnification

Disclosure: my colleague, Georg Rieger, and I are currently in the process of securing post-doc funding to evaluate the effectiveness of Learning Catalytics and that position would be paid in part by Pearson, who owns Learning Catalytics. I have been using Learning Catalytics, web-based "clickers on steroids" software, in a lecture course and a lab course since the start of September.

Pedagogue Padawan

Mark Rowzee and I spoke at the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) 2016 Winter meeting as part of Session EI: Quadcopters, Drones and High Altitude Balloons. Our talk was "Blueprints for Accessible and Affordable High-Altitude Ballooning."
