What blogs and podcasts do you recommend? Does anyone use these resources in their AP Psych classrooms? The link below is to the blog titled Brain Pickings. Now, it's not always about psychology or the brain but a simple filter by subject provides all the psych related posts.

Love to hear your recommendations.

Anyone knowledgeable about Psychometrics? It's been a long time since college stats class. If I'm comparing dating from the control and experimental groups for a significant difference, do I need to run a paired T-test? Can I use a spreadsheet or online calculator to enter data for the 2 groups?

3D Printer Life size Phineas Gage Skull. Came out really cool! Had to be printed in two halves and I had to glue it which is why there is a seam around the head. I think it came out nice!

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.

Today, my AP psychology students used lucidcharts (an app on chrome) to complete a statistics activity. They then turned it in to google classroom. Way more exciting than paper and markers! Plus, they can save it to their google drive to view in May when they create their own research statistics; instead of throwing away the group poster. ;)

Hello. Is this group still active?

Hi AP Psych community! I'd like to incorporate more writing assignments into my curriculum next year. Does anyone have assignments you are willing to share? Thank you!
