Anantanukulwong, Roseleena; Pongsophon, Pongprapan; Chiangga, Surasak; Tan, Aik-Ling – Physics Education, 2023
This study reports students' perceptions of learning the physics concepts of equilibrium through making "Bulan" kites. The "Bulan" kite encompasses indigenous knowledge related to the teachings and ideas found in Islam. After a workshop where students (n = 109) made the "Bulan" kite under the tutelage of a local…

Kosmaca, Jelena; Siiman, Leo A. – Physics Education, 2023
Online video experiments are a promising educational technology tool for science laboratory classes. In order to find optimal instructional designs and scenarios for using online video experiments, we need to study learners' experiences. This work describes implementation of an online interactive video experiment at the undergraduate introductory…

Ismail, Mahizah; Minawi, Farid; Mokhtar, Wan Zul Adli Wan; Rashid, Noraihan L. Abdul; Ariffin, Ahmad K. – Physics Education, 2023
Teaching alternating currents, ac or sound waves, is incomplete without an introduction to the oscilloscope. An oscilloscope is a tool that graphically displays electrical signals and shows their time dependence. However, due to the pandemic, triggered by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, many students do not have the opportunity to master the use of an…

Gregorcic, Bor; Pendrill, Ann-Marie – Physics Education, 2023
We present a case study of a conversation between ourselves and an artificial intelligence-based chatbot ChatGPT. We asked the chatbot to respond to a basic physics question that will be familiar to most physics teachers: 'A teddy bear is thrown into the air. What is its acceleration in the highest point?' The chatbot's responses, while…

Echiburu, Mauricio; Hernández, Carla; Pino, Miguel – Physics Education, 2023
Teaching physics in real-life contexts continues to be a challenge for teachers at different educational levels. In this article, three context-rich problems are proposed to be implemented in the classroom for higher education, using the explosion that occurred in Beirut as a case study. These problems require the search and analysis of real data,…

Uddin, Md Jama; Panda, Bhujendra Nath; Agarwal, Prakash Chandra – Physics Education, 2023
Enhancing the problem-solving skills of learners belonging to socio-economically disadvantaged groups is a great concern in general and particularly in the Indian context. Problem-solving skills are the most important skills of the 21st century for all learners to acquire necessary competencies. The main purpose of this work is to investigate the…

Chhabra, Mahima; Das, Ritwick – Physics Education, 2023
Electrostatic force is the preliminary and fundamental topic that forms the bedrock on which the conceptual framework of "electromagnetism" is built. Being a 'vector' quantity, electromagnetic force naturally inherits direction as well as magnitude. The conceptualization of such physical quantities may pose a challenge. The present work…

Buggé, Danielle; Rutberg, Joshua; Ahmed, Sheehan H.; Zisk, Robert; Jammula, Diane – Physics Education, 2023
The Investigative Science Learning Environment (ISLE) approach to learning and teaching holds as one of its core tenets that students should learn physics by engaging in the same processes through which physicists develop new knowledge. One key skill necessary for this is hypothetico-deductive reasoning. In this study, we explored how the…

Fongsamut, Kanokkarn; Tanasittikosol, Monsit; Phaksunchai, Mingkhuan – Physics Education, 2023
This research studied the effectiveness of the simulation-based learning assisted with scaffolding approach to address students' misconceptions (MCs) about projectile motion. The five MCs were related to the direction of the force acting on an object (MC1), the acceleration of an object at the top of the trajectory (MC2), the directions of…

Saputra, H.; Suhandi, A.; Setiawan, A.; Permanasari, A.; Firmansyah, J. – Physics Education, 2023
This study proposes an online practicum model supported by Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) to implement a physics practicum after the COVID-19 Pandemic. This system is guided by exploratory inquiry questions to help structure students' mindsets in answering investigative questions. Online practicum is also integrated with video conferencing, chat,…

Suárez, Mauricio; Pandiella, Susana; Benegas, Julio – Physics Education, 2023
A quasi-experimental group comparison experiment was conducted to improve the conceptual learning of rotational kinematics by 11th grade students of a technically-oriented high school in Argentina. The experimental instruction complemented the original Tutorials in Introductory Physics activities with the PhET simulation Ladybug Revolution.…

Franco, Margareth K. K. D.; Serbena, José Pedro Mansueto; Mattoso Filho, Ney Pereira; de Oliveira Wiener, Denis; Yokaichiya, Fabiano; Fujimoto, Milton Massumi – Physics Education, 2023
At the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic surprised the world, affecting activities that promote attendance, including abruptly impacting the education area. Educational institutions, from preschool to university, were required to adopt alternative teaching methods to continue their activities. Distance learning has been adopted by educators…

Bjurholt, Nikolai; Bøe, Maria Vetleseter – Physics Education, 2023
The COVID-19 pandemic forced the world into unknown territories of closed schools and remote teaching, and gave teachers a range of new experiences with physics teaching. We studied these experiences by using survey responses from 85 upper secondary physics teachers in Norway. We found that home-school physics instruction was characterised by a…
