The Physics Teacher
written by Michael Dubson, Katherine K. Perkins, Wendy K. Adams, Noah D. Finkelstein, Sam Reid, Carl E. Wieman, and Ron LeMaster
The Physics Education Technology (PhET) project creates useful simulations for teaching and learning physics and makes them freely available from the PhET website (http://phet.colorado.edu). The simulations (sims) are animated, interactive, and game-like environments in which students learn through exploration. In these sims, we emphasize the connections between real-life phenomena and the underlying science, and seek to make the visual and conceptual models of expert physicists accessible to students. We use a research-based approach in our design--incorporating findings from prior research and our own testing to create sims that support student engagement with and understanding of physics concepts.
