Join Greta Dromgool and Ted Cizadlo in a session designed to build confidence in teaching the Physical World.

Using simple, everyday equipment, we will take you step by step through how you can teach the Physical World concepts of force and motion.

This session will be valuable for middle to upper primary and lower secondary school teachers. However, all teachers are welcome to join us.

Register here.

Keep an eye out for the upcoming webinars in this series exploring Physical World concepts such as light, sound and electricity.

Joining the webinar

Follow these simple steps to join our webinar on Zoom:

  1. Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android by clicking on the link https://waikato.zoom.us/j/359736528 and following the instructions. You can also access Zoom on your phone, just follow the prompts.
  2. Find the chat box located in the toolbar at the bottom of your screen. You may need to access this by clicking on ‘More’.
  3. Using the chat box, introduce yourself, where you teach and, if you are in a group, how many people are there.
  4. Set up your screen for optimal viewing. If you’re using a mobile device, you may wish to view in landscape. We recommend selecting a thumbnail view of the presenters – this way, you can easily see what is being shared on the screen.

Then you can:

  • watch, listen and respond via chat to the presentation and discussion
  • ask questions using the chat box at any time
  • continue your learning on Slack – our online discussion forum.

The Science Learning Hub team will be there to support you and answer questions.

PLD certification

We currently offer recognition of teachers’ involvement in our online PLD.

To qualify for a professional learning and development certificate, teachers must:

  • register for and watch the live webinar or let us know they have viewed the recorded version once it is published on the website
  • register in Slack and participate in our discussions about our Physics made simple – force and motion webinar in Slack or in the Slack learning reflections channel.

The Science Learning Hub’s Force and movement concept has a range of articles and activities focusing on the Physical World, and our teacher PLD Physical World – Forces provides an outline of our resources linked to topics such as flight and rockets.

Hands-on learning is so important – engage students in physics with activities like Investigating pendulums and Investigating car safety features.
