Circular and Satellite Motion Uniform Circular Motion How can the motion of an object in a circle at a constant speed be described? Is such an object accelerating or not? If there is an acceleration, then what direction is it and why does it not change the object's speed? How does a change in mass, speed, or radius of the circle affect quantities such as the acceleration and net force? Explore these questions and build the foundation for further studies with the Uniform Circular Motion Interactive. Blog Animation is a powerful technique that allows you to turn complex ideas or vague concepts into a clear and comprehensive story. However, sometimes it might be easier or less time-consuming to demonstrate something using camera-recorded video instead of recreating a situation using animated objects: a product demo, an exterior site, a manufacturing process, an interview — live action helps showing your audience how something works or what you've achieved. This helps you to concretize your story, and to connect with your audience. Other examples of useful recorded video footage include stock videos, event footage but also screen recordings, e.g. to explain a software application. Of course video footage also has its downsides: a long recording of a person being interviewed or a tedious monologue might give your audience a harder time concentrating as there is limited visual or textual support.

Create Netflix-style learning with screencasts Netflix gives us video at our fingertips. What if we created video in class as much as we watch it on Netflix? Here’s how. Principles of Effective Teaching Teachers are always being offered lists of principles, axioms, tenets, precepts – the magic beans of teaching. We’re desperate to make sense of it all – to make something very complicated, simple and easy to grasp. Whether it’s the #5minplan series from @TeacherToolkit or something like my own Lesson Observation Checklist, there’s a demand for handy ready-reckoners of one form or another.
