Experimentation in Physics on Virtual Labs Using Smart Phones in Schools
Abstract: The study carried out on Students and Post Graduate Teachers in Physics from various schools strongly suggests and recommends the use of virtual labs and smart phone as the smartest technological tool to access the physics labs at home, seeing its effectiveness in both conceptual understanding and problem solving well beyond that achieved by conventional methods. • Virtual labs offer advantages in education and can supplement physical labs. A combination of virtual lab experience before and after the conventional hands on lab may provide more learning gains. • Students can navigate the website at their own pace, speeding through familiar material and more carefully exploring difficult or interesting parts of the experiment Virtual labs reduce equipment needs, and thus cost, by providing ‘‘virtual access’’ to equipment and accompanying materials and can act as a boon especially for remote area and economically weaker schools/institutes.
