Join Director, Kathy Perkins, and 90 other participants of the Learning Sciences and Online Learning Symposium on May 21-22, 2015. The symposium will be livestreamed at: http://lsol.mit.edu/live/. Sessions begin at 9am EDT on Thursday, May 21 and run through 12:30pm EDT on Friday, May 22. Ask questions via the web or from Twitter using the hashtag #LSOL2015.
The ability to balance chemical equations is a foundational skill in chemistry. This week Yuen-ying Carpenter, Emily Moore, and Director, Kathy Perkins will be available to discuss employing guided-inquiry activities along with PhET simulations to teach students skills in balancing chemical equations. Please join the discussion at http://confchem.ccce.divched.org/2015SpringConfChem
We’re presenting PhET’s work May 11-15 in the NSF 2015 Teaching and Learning Video Showcase. View our video and browse the more than 100 other great videos about STEM teaching and learning. You can even join the conversation by posing questions to presenters. Vote for your favorites with the “Public Choice”. Winners will be announced on Monday May 18th.
Want to learn more about how to use visualizations—animations and simulations— in chemistry education? This conference will discuss a range of topics in the study of chemistry visualizations, providing insights into: problem solving practices; student ownership; multi-model learning; and inclusive chemistry learning. Each week there are two “assigned” papers for reading, and then an open discussion period where participants can post questions and engage in a public discussion with the authors. Join us for some or all of the conference:
Time: Friday, May 8th 9 PM through Friday, June 4th 9 PM
PhET will be featured during:
Using an Interactive Simulation to Support Development of Expert Practices for Balancing Chemical Equations
Yuen-ying Carpenter, Emily B. Moore, and Katherine K. Perkins
May 29-June 4
Designing Accessible Interactive Chemistry Simulations
Emily B. Moore

Thanks AACT and all those that attended.
Are you going to the CCTM Annual Meeting at the Denver Merchandise Mart?
See PhET’s Amanda McGarry talk about how to use PhET in teaching the Common Core. She will discuss how you can support students to engage in the Standards for Mathematical Practice and show ways you can incorporate sims into your teaching, engage students in inquiry-based activities, and access PhET resources for teachers, including lesson plans and videos of master teachers. See you there!
Place: CCTM Annual Meeting, Denver Merchandise Mart
Date: September 26, 2014
Time: 1:15-2:15 PM
