Laptops and Diesel Generators: Introducing PhET Simulations to Teachers in Uganda
McKagan, Sam
Physics Teacher, v48 n1 p63-66 Jan 2010
This article describes workshops for high school physics teachers in Uganda on inquiry-based teaching and PhET simulations. I hope it increases awareness of the conditions teachers face in developing countries and inspires others to give similar workshops. This work demonstrates what is possible with some concerted, but not extraordinary, effort.
