High-Tech Tools for Teaching Physics: the Physics Education Technology Project 

Logo for High-Tech Tools for Teaching Physics: the Physics Education Technology Project 
This paper introduces a new suite of computer simulations from the Physics Education Technology (PhET) project, identifies features of these educational tools, and demonstrates their utility. We compare the use of PhET simulations to the use of more traditional educational resources in lecture, laboratory, recitation and informal settings of introductory college physics. In each case we demonstrate that simulations are as productive, or more productive, for developing student conceptual... More
