Seeing isn't believing: Do classroom demonstrations help students learn?
Eric Mazur and
Catherine H. Crouch
Physics is the study of nature. So, physics classes typically include demonstrations of how those laws of nature play out, often in surprising ways. But do students see what we intend them to see? This 18-minute podcast discusses the results of recent studies by respected physics education researchers. It addresses what the research says about classroom demos, and how to help students get the most out of them.
