I am a doctoral student in physics education research in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. As well as conducting research, I help teach the practical courses for trainee physics teachers on mechanics, electro-magnetism and optics. Away from the lab I offer seminar courses in mechanics, electro-dynamics and quantum mechanics.
Promoting and scaffolding productive dialogue in the classroom gives learners space to explore ideas in a meaniful way with a means of reflection through a peer or other partner.
To take full advantage of digital media in the classroom it is important that we make decisions based on a pedagogy and play to the advantages of the media at hand.
In any classroom it is important that communication works well. My focus is on challenges that arise through linguistic differences between every day language and scientific ideas.
