Associate professor Giovanni Organtini: Innovating physics laboratory with new digital technologies
New trends in physics education stress the importance of an inquiry based learning. Arduino and smartphones make it possible for every student to perform quantitative, precise and instructive experiments, even at home. Both tools can be exploited at universities as well as in high schools and are complementary to each other.
In this terminal I will give an overview of the potentialities offered by these new pervasive digital technologies, discussing the value added to traditional laboratory activities.
