EDUApp Review: Tinkerbox!
This app would be great to use in physics or physical science courses to help students learn how to apply physics concepts like force, motion, vectors, gravity, etc. Each level has a different goal that could be linked to national or state standards.
Tinkerbox could also be used in guided inquiry or project-based learning Teachers could have students show them when they have figured out the solutions for each stage or have them create a system according to a rubric. Students could record and post their efforts to a blog or learning management system as a performance-based assessment.
