Summary: Overall, this article was about the Important it is to teach students about subjects, specifically force and motion, through self- exploration. Using technology, text, and hands on experiences, students will receive a well-rounded understanding of the concept being taught. Reflection: I really enjoyed reading this article. It gave me motivation to use all different kinds of resources to teach one piece of content. Sometimes as teachers, we close our mind off to teaching something one way, and only one way, but this article reminded me that I can use everything that I have as an advantage to help my students understanding. I love that this article stresses the importance of students exploring on their own to learn new concepts and open up their thinking. It also gives an example of a type of technology that I as a teacher can use to better explore my resources. Great read!!
