Overview for Learn and Teach Physics: Based on UNESCO ICT initiatives
Physics is the crown jewel of the sciences, making an elegant link between the understanding of the deeply fundamental and the powerfully practical. It leads as to a deep understanding of the structure of matter, resulting in developments like the transistor and the laser that continue to profoundly change our way of life. Today, a student with an interest in physics can have exciting opportunities for a productive and fascinating career in a wide range of sciences. The teaching and learning of physics is more important today than ever before. The mission of physics education is not only to convey practical skills and knowledge about the structure and behaviour of matter, but also, and maybe in the first place, to contribute to education for wisdom and responsibility. The task of the physics teacher is to figure out how to help students to understand hoe the world works, how to think logically, and how to evaluate science. The present publication, designed on the basis of UNESCO ICT initiatives, is about learning to be a more effective physics teacher. It takes into account the various factors of learning and teaching of physics. It contains valuable information on a variety of tools and techniques for improving both teaching and learning of physics. The book is meant for anyone who is interested in learning about recent developments in physics education.
