Collecting Physics Data with Your Phone

I don’t have a smart phone, but you bet all my students do!  (One day soon, I’ll upgrade…)  Since my schools is piloting BYOD (bring your own device) in the classroom, I may be able to use some of these apps in the future.

Physics Gizmo

physicsgizmoTurns your Android device into a motion detector using blue tooth!  Looks much cleaner and easier than Logger Pro.

Another one to look at: Physics Sketchpad (also Android)

These types of apps are an awesome development!  They will allow students to access real world data without the need for super-expensive sensors.
