Contributions from Physics 203

Published October 26, 2014  |  Physics

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

Third in our discipline-specific articles on resources available on Profweb is Phystics - Discipline 203. What is it about Physics? So many teachers in Physics Departments across the province are creatively open to information technology to the point where the Physics Department in every single school is, if not the most, one of the most with it departments in using information technology. It’s amazing!

Mixing Academia with Wikipedia

Published February 15, 2009  |  Physics

Simon Villeneuve Teacher, Cégep de Chicoutimi

Because this encyclopedia and its contents are by their very nature collaborative and seek to make all human knowledge accessible, I considered asking the students in my astronomy course to share their knowledge of astronomy through contributions to Wikipedia articles related to this topic. This is how the Wikipedia page Projet : Cégep de Chicoutimi saw the light of day in the French language edition of this resource.

Getting Beyond the Equations

Published October 31, 2010  |  Physics

Kevin Lenton Teacher, Vanier College

My practical teaching style means I am sometimes surprised by how students can push their own learning when they are motivated. Beyond a basic lesson plan, I observe how students interact with concepts in the classroom and try to teach in response to what I am seeing, often with information technology. One challenge with IT is to discover how the modern generation learns. Their relationship with technology is often very different from my own.

MIT’s Classrooms of the Future: Now in a Classroom Near You

Published January 24, 2010  |  Physics

Elizabeth Charles Researcher, Dawson College

An adaptation of the innovatively designed science classrooms at MIT can now be found at Dawson College's Physics Department. These spaces illustrate that IT is useful but works best in environments designed to accommodate it.

20 New Problems for the Website: Problem-Based Learning for College Physics

Published December 6, 2016  |  Physics

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

The Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach has been proven to be successful in several different disciplines and physics is one of the them. Searching for problems designed for all 3 fields of physics at the college level, Olivier Tardif-Paradis, Mathieu Riopel and Alexandre April, of Cégep Garneau, launched themselves into a 2-year project of creating new problems for the existing website by the CCDMD, Problem-Based Learning for College Physics: A Website for Life-like Activities.

A Toolbox for a Blended Learning Pilot

Published May 6, 2012  |  Physics

Greg Mulcair Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

Greg Mulcair touches upon the tools that he has used to blend information technology and traditional teaching in his Physics course which is part of a pilot project for blended learning at John Abbott College.

Using PSI (The Personalized System of Instruction) for Active Learning

Published August 26, 2012  |  Physics

Rocco Iafigliola Teacher, Marianopolis College

PSI helps learners take control of their own learning. It fell into disfavour because of the heavy correction load required to provide feedback. The advent of online platforms such as  MasteringPhysics with self-correcting tests has allowed teachers to revisit this strategy.

Facebook Groups to Stimulate Student Interest in Subject Matter

Published April 20, 2018  |  Physics

Éric Laflamme Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

In the winter and fall sessions of 2017, I used Facebook to help students develop an awareness of the concrete applications of the subject that I was teaching them. The first time I used it was in an elective astronomy course. The second time was in the Electricity and Magnetism course in Natural Science (Health Science profile).

On Using Stellarium: “There Is Nothing Wrong with Treating Yourself a Little”

Published November 3, 2015  |  Physics

Karine Aeschlimann Teacher, Collège Montmorency

Stellarium is a free, open-source planetarium software used to create dynamic 3D sky projections that imitate what a person would see with the naked eye or with a telescope. Among other functions, this software allows the user to obtain full views of the Milky Way and of constellations with their respective boundaries. It may be used at home for fun or instructional purposes, or in a classroom context, as was the case with my “Astronomie et astrophysique” class.
