Physics Labs Integrates Technology

Teachers are doing lots of hands-on activities in physics this year and incorporating the students' Chromebooks whenever possible. In the lab shown here, students used their personal devices to record the motion of a ball on a ramp. They were then able to analyze the video and turn the data into a graph. This allowed them to find the acceleration of the ball and answer questions about its motion. Students are able to turn labs in, and receive feedback, all digitally through Google Classroom.
