Title: how to get more teachers to contribute their lessons ideas worksheet here
Post by: lookang on March 12, 2009, 01:45:46 pm
http://phet.colorado.edu/simulations/sims.php?sim=Energy_Skate_Park

(http://phet.colorado.edu/images/phet-logo.gif) has one of the best simulations and well used applets. notice there allows people to post their worksheets and share lessons around the applets.

If only more people are contributing their worksheets to use your applets, it will push the reach of this forum (NTNUJAVA Virtual Physics Laboratory Java Simulations in Physics:) to a even more meaningful level.





it may help if you can autoadd texts ( feel free to post your worksheets here, to help others learn, help other use the applet in classroom one to one exploration ) to advertise to educators visiting your forum, to co-design applets ( already possible with some people like me ;D ), contribute/design worksheets, activities to make the learning by doing more thought out, better conceptualized.


it will be a slow process ( only you and few others willing to share ?), but i think your applets are well designed, just abit more people to help complement the applets, it will nurture this forum to becoming closer to being a learning community of educators and students.


This is a powerful strategy for improving physics education worldwide.

for your consideration
just thinking out loud! :)

This is a forum and all the user can post their comments and suggestions (attach files are also possible).
All the user are welcomed to upload their worksheet (Yes I did receive worksheet before and that is the reason I transform my web site into a forum).
I hope more users can contribute.

May be I should make it more obvious so that user will do it in a more nature way.
I will add the following message to all the applet
Quote
Please feel free to:
post your ideas about how to use the simulation in the classroom
post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
upload worksheets as attached file to share with more users

I will try to create a new interface so that it will be easier to input and share ideas.
Your suggestions are always welcomed!
