I teach: Physics
To ages: 8 to 21
PocketLab Voyager equips sensors like new smartphones, but this device is apart from monitor (smartphone, tablet, PC web browser), thus you can share the realtime measurement or throw the device upward. In additon, PocketLab develops a lot of teaching programs. They make teachers easy to begin their classrooms.
In Physics study, air pressure is not so difficult because you can see a turgid bag in a shop at high places such as a mountain. But most of us don’t know air pressure is very sensitive and it defer between on the 1st floor and on the 2nd floor. If your school posses Aneroid barometer, you can show that difference, but the instrument is expensive. However, all iPhone have a pressure sensor and can measure it very precisely. You can do the same measure with iPhone.
In Physics study, Mechanics is foundamental but not easy to learn. All students start from Motion and have to understand concepts of velocity and accelaration. It’s difficult because the concepts isn’t in everyday life. However, the concepts IS in everyday life acctually. This app can show that. For example, when you ride on some viecle or an elevator, you can watch the change of acceralation with this app. These are very easy and concrete way to understand the concepts.
That’s very simple app. You can look only 4 models. However, It’s very good to imagine electric field. Electric field is very difficult to teach, because it’s invisible. Many students give up studying Physics at the point. Thus, this app is very effective.
This product is so intuitive that my 5 years old son can play with that. There are a lot of devices in this product, so it successfully hides complex things such as electric current adjustment and signal processes. Therefore an user can concentrate on jointing parts. I have held several workshops with that and every participants enjoyed. In my opinion, a sensor and a actuator are hidden into the package of product, so it’s good oppotunity to touch with this teaching material for understanding modern devices.
