Playground Physics Turns Real-World Motion Into Graphs

Title: Playground Physics
Summary: Fun video app lets students track motion to explore physics concepts

Pros: Gets kids moving their bodies to explore science; the interface is ridiculously easy to use, and there are tons of available resources and lesson plans.
Cons: Motion tracks have to be built by hand, so it's not as magical as specialized data-logging hardware. Generated graphs can't easily be exported.
Bottom Line:This is a cheap way to get students out of their chairs to make physics real and tangible, empowering learners and encouraging curiosity.
