If you are in my OSMOCES 2013 session on Computational Modeling with VPython and want to try the models as we go, here are the three links to you need to get setup:

Install VPython for your system and download my vpython-physics repository from GitHub.

If you referring to these materials later or just browsing, here are the slides I shared.

I also shared several links to other resources, textbooks, papers at the end. They are reproduced here to make navigation easier.

Pedagogue Padawan’s Annual Report from WordPress

The WordPress code monkeys put together a cool 2012 annual report for Pedagogue Padawan:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 13,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 3 Film Festivals In 2012, there were 22 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 73 posts. The busiest day of the year was January 5th with 160 views. The most popular post that day was Holometer.

The full report is available.

To summarize, I’m a high school physics teacher hoping to make time to share my reflections on learning to help others learn. I expect to focus on my interests in assessment, engineering, mastery learning, modeling, physics, standards-based grading, and technology.
