Thanks for the suggestion, Ryan. I am so impressed to see that Yang made comics for Algebra! How awesome. That guy is amazing.
Looking at your profile, I realized I am the "anti-you". I teach math and English as a second language and you teach everything but math and foreign language! (Am I revealing too much of my geeky self here?)
Anyway, looking forward to participating in the ning.
Hi Ryan - thanks for the greeting. I have the pleasure of doing a variety of things in my job. One of them is helping keep area district teachers (K-12) up-to-date on cool sites and upcoming technology. I found out about this site from a distribution list I'm on for librarians. I'm looking forward to exploring this site and learning how it can be utilized.
I was going to post this, but wanted to ask first - is this ok?
I am an SME for Physics for Twist Education, and we are developing applications to teach physics. Our first 4 apps are up on iTunes, and can be used to teach the seven SI units, the SI metric prefixes, the adding and scaling of vectors, and one-dimensional motion. We are hoping for teachers to try the apps in their class, and contact us with feedback - we are looking to develop potential research protocols with schools willing to test for learning efficacy.
Ideally, these would be close to San Antonio, TX, where we are located.
We would love you to take a look at the website and give feedback. Contact me here, or register for Twist and log in, explore the site, and leave comments.
