Phenomenon-Based Learning


#1 Using Physical Science Gadgets and Gizmos, Grades 6-8


#2 Using Physics Gadgets and Gizmos, Grades 9-12

by Matthew Bobrowsky, Mikko Korhonen, and Jukka Kohtamäki
Publication Date:  April 2014

These brand-new titles-all about small devices (gizmos and gadgets that students love)--are targeted for Middle School (physical science) and High School physics teachers and students.


Invaluable resource books--these new titles will have great impact because


 #1 It's a great way to improve students' thinking and problem-solving skills.     


 #2 Uses easy-to-perform experiments that engage students in physics., and


 #3 Makes physics lessons inclusive and participative.


Phenomenon-based learning (PBL) is the authors' approach-instead of putting the theory before the application, PBL encourages students to first experience how gadgets work and then grow curious enough to find out why. Students conduct experiments and activities not as tasks to be completed, but as exploration and discovery. This helps students go beyond simply memorizing physical science facts. Using Gadgets and Gizmos in the classroom will help students learn broader concepts, useful thinking skills, and science and engineering practices (as defined by the Next Generation Science Standards).
