CSAAPT Spring 2019 Meeting


Talk Abstract: #iTeachPhysics – Can Social Media Make Us Better Physics Teachers? Over the past decade, social media has moved beyond status updates about what we ate for breakfast and is changing how physics teachers engage in our profession. Social media allows teachers to instantly connect with each other -- sharing ideas, epiphanies, frustrations, and failures. Social media can also evoke empathy by allowing us to see the previously unknown personal and professional struggles of others. It can transform our perceptions about our students and colleagues and thus spark action to seek change within ourselves and within our institutions.
