Physion - Physics Simulation Software

Physion - Physics Simulation Software | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Physion is a 2D Physics simulation software. It can be used to easily create a wide range of interactive physics simulations and educational experiments. Teachers may find it particularly useful since it can be used as a virtual physics laboratory through which they can demonstrate some basic physics concepts in the classroom. Physion has been translated into the following languages: English, Greek, Russian, Japanese, German, Spanish and Indonesian. The software is available both for Windows (XP, Vista, 7) and Linux (x86 and x86_64) operating systems and most importantly it is 100% free.

MinyanLand - Fun Way for Kids To Learn Economics with Hoofy & Boo

MinyanLand - Fun Way for Kids To Learn Economics with Hoofy & Boo | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

MinyanLand was created as a platform to entertain and educate a young generation so they understand the concept of a market and the basics of economics and finance on a real world level. The economic system of MinyanLand mimics the real-life pricing of general goods and services. As players participate in the system, their actions will affect the overall MinyanLand economy. This is how they will learn. To keep the economy stabilized, for instance, players must stay healthy by eating on a regular basis. MinyanLand will also offer incentives to encourage such behavior as charitable giving.

Neuroscience & the Classroom: Making Connections

Exciting developments in the field of neuroscience are leading to a new understanding of how the brain works that is beginning to transform teaching in the classroom. Neuroscience & the Classroom: Making Connections brings together researchers and educators in a dialog about how insights into brain function can be harnessed by teachers for use in their own classrooms to address their own particular challenges. Course components include 42 video segments interwoven with an online text and other useful resources on a comprehensive Web site. The Web also includes interactive simulations of neuroscience research tools, glossary, and course guide for teachers to use all the materials for sustained professional development.

Virtual Reality and Computer Simulation and the Implications for UDL Implementation

 Computer simulations and virtual reality are potentially powerful learning technologies by themselves, offering teachers a means to concretize abstract concepts for students and provide them with opportunities to learn by doing what they might otherwise encounter only in a textbook. UDL provides a context for implementing these technologies and harnessing their power in a way that can improve learning experiences for every student in the classroom.
