Let’s rocket ourselves up to the R on the SAMR latter and together Redefine the way we teach. Get you and your student’s creativity superEmpowered with these imaginative, hands on, student centered activities. Set spark of deeper learning in your classroom with these examples of creative, collaborative projects.
I want to inspire you to challenge your own creativity when redefining your lessons. I will show you my way of introducing lessons with my own flair that creates interest and enthusiasm. We will talk about stop motion kinematics videos inspired by Mario Kart, and Guy Richie Movies (all shot on cell phones). Converting DC motors into electric generators with 3D printed wind mills and water wheels. Making a DC motor out of a battery, paperclips, magnets and wire. Cosplay demonstrations that bring presentations to life. And for the daring, you will be participating in my design brief that makes lights illuminate with school supplies!
There is no specific demographic for creativity and engagement but the topics I cover will be examples from my own high school physics classes.
