July 6-7, 2013
Indian Association of Physics Teachers (Regional Council -6) has organized a workshop cum conference “Innovation in Laboratories” at Centre for Development of Physics Education, University of Rajasthan on 6-7 July, 2013. More than 60 teachers from 35 schools participated.
In the workshop lecture on High Energy Physics was presented by Prof NL Sharma from University of Michigan, USA and various demonstrations of school level physics were presented by Mr. MS Marwah from Khalsa College, Chandigarh, Mr. Manoranjan Singh from Pilani and Mr. AK Srivastava from Dholpur to make difficult concepts of physics understanding in much simpler way through experiments.
In year 2013 IAPT RC-6 will be targeting to provide a platform to those school teachers who use innovative methods of physics teaching in their classes. Through this platform such innovative teaching style and methods can be shared with various schools to increase the reach of these methods to make learning easier for large group of teachers and students.
For the same RC-6 is developing a Physics Videopedia on cloud technology where any physics teacher can upload their physics videos of innovative physics teaching methods or demonstrations which after screening by experts will be made live on the cloud videopedia. The videopedia is named Physics Information Cloud for teachers and students.
