Using PhET Simulations for High School Chemistry: Free research-based resources on the web

PhET has developed 38 simulations (sims) in chemistry, free at phet.colorado.edu. PhET sims provide interactive environments for students to learn through scientist-like exploration, making the invisible visible and emphasizing connections between real life phenomena and the underlying science. Participants will discuss how to use PhET chemistry sims to enhance student learning and engagement, and will learn where to find hundreds of editable activities online to use with sims in all science disciplines.

Free Course on How to Integrate PhET Sims in Science and Math Courses: July 9-29

Teachers, join us for a free online course at Peer-to-Peer University.

Course Description: PhET simulations are designed to provide an open exploratory environment. They can be used in many different educational settings, including lecture, individual or small group inquiry activities, homework, online courses, and labs. This flexibility makes the sims easy to integrate into courses, allowing teachers to choose the simulation and then tailor their use of the simulation to address the most important learning goals for their students. In this three week course, you will learn about how the sims are designed, some best practices for use, and explore/create lessons you can use with your students.”

Texas Instruments to Preview Adaptations of PhET Sims at NSTA Booth #336

TI will preview adaptations for a selection of PhET simulations, that when used with the TI-Nspire CX’s interactive graphing capabilities, color screen and computer software, will bring middle school physical, life, and earth science concepts to life. These activities will be available through TI’s Science Nspired online resource center, free of charge, in Summer 2012.

See these new adaptations at Texas Instrument Booth #336 at the 2012 National Science Teacher Association (NSTA) National Conference in Indianapolis, March 29 – April 1.

PhET Webinar February 15th at 2:00 PM Mountain

Sign up for the newest PhET Webinar brought to you by the ISTE.

Using PhET Simulations for Science Inquiry: Free, Researched, Web-Based Resources

The PhET Interactive Simulations project at the University of Colorado provides a free website of research-based simulations designed to support student learning through active engagement, including Energy Skate Park, Salts and Solubility, Gas Properties, Density, Circuit Construction Kit, and Build an Atom. The simulations are free, and can run from the PhET website (http://phet.colorado.edu) or downloaded to a local computer for offline use. This webinar will offer an opportunity to explore some of the PhET sims and collaborate with other webinar participants to investigate productive ways to incorporate these in your curriculum. Also, learn how to access lesson plans that PhET team members and other teachers have used and submitted to the Teaching Ideas database.
