Abstract Title: The digital technologies of physics education research
Abstract: The field of physics education research (PER) has principally grown up alongside the advancing technology of computing since the late 1950s. In this poster, I explore the developmental history of instructional technology in PER, showing how the shifts in theories of learning over the last 60+ years have influenced the digital tools that we use to teach and learn physics (and, perhaps, vice versa). I illustrate how, as the field of PER has moved from transmissionist models of teaching and learning to more socio-constructivist ones, so too has the PER community tended to move toward embracing digital technologies which support more active learning and collaboration.
