Our tech department has a 3D printer and there is a 3D print file of the scans from Phineas Gage's skull....so check out what just was printed for me!

It took 16 hours to print!

Behaviorism is alive and well. https://game.classcraft.com/home

Has anyone used Classcraft? 

Here is an idea I think I'm going to explore when I teach the methods section. My idea began when I purchased Google Cardboard, the Virtual Reality (VR) headset that can be used with smartphone apps.

I have since bought a more comfortable headset for $15 at my local supermarket. I've read a couple articles about how VR might increase empathy and memory so I want my classrooms to put it to the test.

NYTimes has a VR app and an app named WITHIN is also very good. The control group would watch a news story in 2D and the experimental group would watch the exact same story in VR with the goggles. We would test each group for memory and empathy. I don't think we have to do a before/after test.

I'll try to keep you updated. Should happen in the next few weeks. Any suggestions or thoughts are welcomed.

Hello. Is this group still active?

Hi AP Teachers, we are looking to purchase a new textbook, does anyone have a recommendation? We have looked at King and Myers AP, thanks!
