Skills & Interests

  • Education / TeacherEd / Teaching Methods (Advanced)
    Use of Smartboard technology in my classroom. I currently make use of a 3M Digital Wall Display to teach physics at Lockport High School. This technology makes possible interactive teaching situations using digital graphics/sound and open ended scenarios in all types of lessons. It incorporates Adobe Flash Physics simulations called "Fizzixs Flixs" to teach all concepts in physics.
  • Education / TeacherEd / Teaching Methods (Advanced)
    Adobe Flash programming. I create Physics simulations using Adobe Flash. I call these simulations "Fizzixs Flixs" which are real time interactive graphical representations of most every concept in physics. You can find examples of these simulations on the University of Buffalo, Project CLAW website at: http://www.physics.buffalo.edu/claw/
