Sensor-based mobile application for teaching physics to regular basic education students

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


In this work, we present the development of a mobile application that uses sensors to teach the physics course. We expect to improve portability and reduce complexity in experiments using services and standards. The application is based on design thinking and design material to standardize interaction. We think this is an outstanding improvement to previous efforts where the creation of technological educational materials are complex at high costs. This new alternative will motivate the use of mobile educational materials. So, educators can focus their efforts on creative tasks such as content design, instead of dealing with complex developments, seeking to complement learning, proposing innovation in the presentation of content through interactions with sensors, promoting learning outside the classroom, profoundly impacting on improving the quality of the educational content.
