The Role of "Talking Physics" in an Undergraduate Physics Class Using an Electronic Audience Response System
Henriksen, Ellen K.; Angell, Carl
Physics Education, v45 n3 p278-284 May 2010
The use of electronic audience response systems (ARS) in undergraduate science instruction is increasing. In this article, we argue for combining such a teaching approach with a more active use of student small-group discussions, demonstrating with examples from a Norwegian physics course how "talking physics" is central to the development of understanding and can be used to enhance learning in ARS classrooms. (Contains 4 figures.)
