>Tonight my twitter physics buds and I tried an Elluminate chat. Here’s the recording of some of it. It was a lot of fun as we talked about standards in physics courses, a database of (re)assessments, Momentum as King, and more.
We thought we’d try to make it a weekly thing so here’s the details:
8:30PM central time

We thought we’d use Elluminate instead of a twitter chat because you gain a lot more functionality. Tonight we had eight participants but the system can handle up to 100 (I think) so please think about joining us.
We talked about leveraging some of the functionality and asking people to occasionally give a mini-presentation to set some context. Next week we’ll start that off with a presentation from me on my thoughts on Momentum as King. This will involve talking about both force and energy as accounting tricks, lots of fun.
As just a teaser for how cool these chats can be, at one point tonight I made an offhand remark about how we could all share the first three things we teach in an intro physics course. Wow, with just eight people I think we got ten opinions! It lead to some great conversation.
Thanks to all who joined me tonight. Please comment below about your impressions of tonight when you get a chance.
