Teaching Physics With Technology
with David Strasburger and Jon Jasinski
This webinar is an opportunity to learn more about the upcoming summer workshop June 21-22, 2012. We will explore innovative ideas, effective techniques, and thoughtful plans for incorporating Web-based resources, desktop software packages, and new and emerging technologies into the Physics classroom. Participants will explore examples of the best science-related web sites, and will work with innovative tools to help improve Physics education, such as wikis, embedded maps, graphs, charts, and online social networks.
