Mahoney, Mark – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2013
Students graduating from today's campuses are entering a world where alternative energy vehicles are becoming more reality than concept. Students at all levels of education must be prepared for this reality, whether entering college, graduate study, industry, or simply functioning as a consumer. At the Technology and Industrial Arts Department at…

Havre, Sigrid Jordal; Väkevä, Lauri; Christophersen, Catharina R.; Haugland, Egil – British Journal of Music Education, 2019
This article is based on a case study of how the Rocksmith entertainment music video game can be used in the context of studying electric guitar and bass as part of music teacher training. In empirical terms, we were interested in how music teachers' knowledge becomes articulated in the pedagogical discourse of our participants. As conceptual…

Li, Jing; Singh, Chandralekha – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2019
We discuss an investigation of the difficulties that students in a calculus-based university introductory physics course have with electric field and the superposition principle for the case of a continuous charge distribution and how that research was used as a guide in the development, validation, and evaluation of a tutorial on these topics to…

Bacalla, Xavier; Salumbides, Edcel John – Physics Teacher, 2013
We demonstrate that the time profile of the light intensity from domestic lighting sources exhibits simple yet interesting properties that foster lively student discussions. We monitor the light intensity of an industrial fluorescent lamp (also known as TL) and an incandescent bulb using a photodetector connected to an oscilloscope. The light…

Hekkenberg, Ans; Lemmer, Miriam; Dekkers, Peter – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2015
In an exploratory study, 36 South African physical science teachers' understanding of basic concepts concerning electric and magnetic fields was studied from a perspective of possible concept confusion. Concept confusion is said to occur when features of one concept are incorrectly attributed to a different concept, in the case of this study to…

Rediansyah, Herfien; Khairurrijal; Viridi, Sparisoma – Physics Education, 2015
The aim of this research was to design a simple experimental device to see electric field force lines using common components which are readily available in everyday life. A solution of baby oil was placed in a plastic container, 4.5 × 4.5 × 1 inches, with both ends of the electrodes (metal wire) immersed in the solution at a depth of 0.2 inches.…

Egbue, Ona; Long, Suzanna; Ng, Ean-Harn – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2015
Despite attempts to generate interest in science and technology careers, US students continue to show reduced interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors at the collegiate level. If girls are not engaged in STEM learning by the middle school level, studies show that they are even less likely to choose a science- or…

Isik, Hakan – Physics Education, 2015
In this study, an easy and enjoyable activity to determine the type of electric charge is presented, using a readymade electronic test screw. A four-way usage of the tester is explained with an electroscope. In the activity, ebonite and glass rods are negatively and positively charged by rubbing with paper sheets, respectively.

O'Connell, Robert M. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2015
Team-based learning (TBL) is a form of student-centered active learning in which students independently study new conceptual material before it is treated in the classroom, and then subsequently spend considerable classroom time working in groups on increasingly challenging problems and applications based on that new material. TBL provides…

Nakamura, Yumiko; Fukayama, Kaori; Majima, Yukie – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2015
Based on the Nursing Learning Support System, which was developed and tested by our university, this study developed the "Digital Nursing Dictionary (ver. 2)," a terminal tablet with a new function of an electronic books, by taking advantage of the developed ICT. This paper describes an interim report of the results of those assessments.…

Hamilton, James – Occupational Outlook Quarterly, 2012
Many occupations related to electric vehicles are similar to those that help to make and maintain all types of automobiles. But the industry is also adding some nontraditional jobs, and workers' skill sets must evolve to keep up. This article describes careers related to electric vehicles. The first section is about the electric vehicle industry…

Demski, Jennifer – T.H.E. Journal, 2008
A student committee whose main duty is changing light bulbs may sound like the punch line to a bad joke, but as the students and faculty at Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) in Rockville, MD, know, changing a light bulb is no laughing matter. As part of the district's green initiative, all standard incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs…

Métioui, Abdeljalil; MacWillie, Mireille Baulu; Trudel, Louis – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Qualitative research conducted with 237 pupils from Canada, France, and Morocco, between 10 and 12 years of age, on the setting and functioning of simple electric circuits, demonstrates that similar explanatory systems of the students. For this, we had given them a paper and pencil questionnaire of a sixty minutes duration. The first question was…
