Whether for remote learning, or in the classroom, simulations have become a great tool to learning in science. This session will introduce ideas from various sources, including PHET, to aid teaching in the classroom as well as introduce student led investigations that can be done in classroom on laptops and iPads, or at home for homework, flipped learning or during distance learning. Learn how to use simulations for collecting data, or for quick demonstrations to engage students. For those with very little IT background, with a few ideas for those who have more of IT know how too.

These physics courses form part of the Stimulating Physics Network programme of support. They are fully funded by the DfE and are open to all English maintained secondary educators, not just to SPN partner schools. Please select the course you are interested in attending from the list to find out more and to book your place. Please be sure to note the venue; some are remote courses and the venue will appear as “virtual”, and some are delivered face to face and may be in your locality.
