Thank you so much, for giving me the opportunity to take this excellent introductory course, and for the great content, and pedagogical material shared.
Introduction to PhET Simulations for STEM Education is an excellent course, that develops the competencies & skills, to introduce the use of Active Learning as a pedagogical strategy to use PhET sims in subjects such as mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology among others.
In addition, other techniques to accompany PhET, such as, Concept Questions & Peer Instruction, Whole Class Inquiry, and Interactive Lecture Demonstrations are taught and showcased with examples, descriptions, and videos.
The peer to peer method of evaluation gives also a great opportunity to develop the technique for further applications in our own classes, adding the PhET sims.
PhET helps to develop intuition and the scientific method in STEM subjects.
