Teacher roles during amusement park visits – insights from observations, interviews and questionnaires

Pendrill, Ann-Marie LU ; Kozma, Cecilia and Theve, Andreas (2014) In ICPE - EPEC 2013 Proceedings 2013. p.591-599
Abstract
Amusement parks offer rich possibilities for physics learning, through observations and experiments that illustrate important physical principles and often involve the whole body.

Amusement parks are also among the most popular school excursions, but very often the learning possibilities are underused. In this work we have studied different teacher roles and discuss how universities, parks or event managers can encourage and support

teachers and schools in their efforts to make amusement park visits true learning experiences for their students.
