Woo, Yura; Ju, Young-Gu – Physics Education, 2019
In this paper, we present the details of the development of a smartphone spectrometer for education using a 3D printer and characterized the performance by comparison with a paper craft spectrometer. The optical design and the narrow slit used in the build resulted in the formation of accurate images of the slit on the image sensor leading to a…

Borup, Jered; Walters, Shea; Call-Cummings, Megan – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019
With the rapid growth of K-12 online learning opportunities, calls have come for more and better parental engagement to improve student engagement and reduce student attrition. In this article, we drew from a larger study to share rich narratives from three parents of students who required high levels of parental support for their online learning…

Kvita, Jirí; Cermáková, Berenika; Matulová, Natálie; Poštulka, Jan; Staník, Daniel – Physics Education, 2019
We present several applications of the particle camera MX-10 in different radiation environments, leading to strikingly different observed patterns and consequently particle composition as well as recorded dose. We describe the measurements of the radiation background, cosmic muons direction analysis and the detection of alpha particles in a…

Hosker, Bill S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
A highly simplified variation on the do-it-yourself spectrophotometer using a smartphone's light sensor as a detector and an app to calculate and display absorbance values was constructed and tested. This simple version requires no need for electronic components or postmeasurement spectral analysis. Calibration graphs constructed from two…

Hubacz, Meghan – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
During the author's eighteen-year tenure as a high school mathematics teacher, there has been one question that she has yet to answer: "Why don't students do homework?" On the basis of research, many factors may lead to a student leaving homework undone. A student may lack the drive to complete work out of school. Or a student may choose…

Garrido-Gonza´lez, Jose´ J.; Trillo-Alcala´, María; Sa´nchez-Arroyo, Antonio J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
The generation of secondary colors in digital devices by means of the additive red, green, and blue color model (RGB) can be a valuable way to introduce students to the basics of spectroscopy. This work has been focused on the spectral separation of secondary colors of light emitted by a computer screen into red, green, and blue bands, and how the…

Loomis, Stephanie – Journal of Language and Literacy Education, 2018
Technology evolves at a lightning pace in the 21st century. Not only does technology change, but the online spaces begin, morph, and disappear quickly, requiring teachers to be creative and flexible as they work to incorporate technology use into their pedagogy. Today's Tumblr may well be tomorrow's Myspace. As a high school teacher of many years,…
