PhETについて

PhET は、物理教育研究に基づいて開発された物理現象の楽しいインタラクティブ・シミュレーションを無料で提供しています。私たちは、物理教育研究のこれまでの研究結果と独自の試験調査を組み合わせることにより、学習者が、現実に起きる現象とその原因を説明する科学を結びつけることができると確信しています。そして、この結びつけは、現実の世界の理解と認識をより深いものにすると考えています。

More About PhET's Design

To help students engage in science and mathematics through inquiry, PhET simulations are developed using the following design principles:

  • Encourage scientific inquiry
  • Provide interactivity
  • Make the invisible visible
  • Show visual mental models
  • Include multiple representations (e.g., object motion, graphs, numbers, etc.)
  • Use real-world connections
  • Give users implicit guidance (e.g., by limiting controls) in productive exploration
  • Create a simulation that can be flexibly used in many educational situations

Several tools in the simulations provide an interactive experience:

  • Click and drag to interact with simulation features
  • Use sliders to increase and decrease parameters
  • Choose between options with radio buttons
  • Make measurements in your experiments with various instruments – rulers, stop-watches, voltmeters, and thermometers.

As users interact with these tools, they get immediate feedback about the effect of the changes they made. This allows them to investigate cause-and-effect relationships and answer scientific questions through exploration of the simulation. For more information, visit our research page.
