New Models of Physics Instruction Based on Physics Education Research.
Redish, Edward F.
During the past 15 years, physics education research has revealed many surprising things about the difficulties introductory physics students have in learning physics. At the same time, the ongoing revolution in information technology has led to new tools for creating innovative educational environments. In response to these two developments, a wide variety of new models of physics instruction are beginning to appear. This paper reviews some of the findings of physics education research, putting them into the context of a theory of thinking and learning. Some of the most promising instructional models currently being developed in the U.S. are discussed. (Contains 20 references and 12 figures.) (Author/WRM)
