Activities Used for Interactive Teaching of Magnetism and Electro-Magnetic Induction

Victor Arni Sicam, Rosea van den Berg, Ed van den Berg


Some physics teachers use the PC for interactive teaching of introductory physics courses (Sokoloff, 2000; Laws, 1996). To a large extent, this teaching strategy received positive responses from many students and teachers. However, even without the computer, interactive teaching can still be used effectively (Mazur, 1997; Andre, 1993). This paper reports the use of designed activities, without the use of PC's, for interactive teaching of Magnetism and Electro-Magnetic Induction.
