Integrating PhET simulations in science and math studies.
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.
