A learning path is proposed starting from the characterization of a sound wave, showing how human beings emit articulate sounds in the language, introducing psychoacoustics, i.e. how the sound interacts with ears and it is transduced into an electrical signal for transmission to the brain. What is perceived as noise is presented and the concept is extended to physical measurements. The interdisciplinary teaching process is focused on active learning through activities at school and outside…

The time in science: an interdisciplinary laboratorial approach

In order to promote problem-based and active learning in the physics laboratory, we designed a flipped classroom focused on the Franck-Hertz experiment. The flipped classroom approach moves course

Promoting Multimedia in Physics Teaching Through the Flipped Classroom in Pre-Service Education

A flipped classroom was introduced in pre-service education in order to promote MM and the quality of their use in the teaching and learning process in laboratory. The course, Physics Lab Didactics,



An empirical study on a learning path on wave physics focused on energy

We describe an extracurricular learning path on waves focused on energy transfer. The advantages of introducing mechanical waves by using the Shive wave machine and laboratory activities are
