Tech Tools for the Everyday Teacher

Interactive Simulations

phet-logo

We know students have different learning styles.  Some excel visually, some auditory, some need that hands-on activity to truly understand the lesson.  When there aren’t materials accessible here is a website that could easily help you.

It’s full of excellent simulations in:

  1. Physics
  2. Fractions
  3. Biology
  4. Plate Tectonics
  5. Chemistry

 

I have a co-worker who has been using it with his 8th grade students and says that they have loved interacting with the simulations.  The simulations look appropriate for all levels and seem extremely applicable to most science and math classes.  Whether the teacher is showing the simulations to the class or the class is experimenting with the simulations themselves – Physics Education Technology would be a great resource.
