Winter Edition of New Radio Waves E-Newsletter for Teachers and Instructors Now Available
The Winter 2014 edition of Radio Waves, ARRL's redesigned and renamed e-newsletter for instructors and teachers, now is available on the ARRL website.
Among the selection of articles: “High School Students Put Packet Radio to Work for Local Environmental Study,” “Club Boasts Fourfold Increase in New Licensees/Upgrades,” “Instructor Corner — News, Ideas, Support,” and “In The Classroom: Teaching Ohm’s Law.”
Radio Waves aims to provide information that will help educators and instructors with licensing or classroom instruction and to share experiences and stories of other instructors and teachers that may offer ideas for you to incorporate in your own activities.
ARRL Education Services Manager Debra Johnson, K1DMJ, who edits Radio Waves, said the redesign was due in part to a desire to include links to the plethora of information available on the ARRL website and elsewhere.
“We can bring together information that exists in many places more effectively than we could in the past,” she said. “We provide the information in newsletter format direct to your mailbox as a convenience.” Johnson said readers can review the current edition or earlier issues — including an archive of past editions of the earlier Instructor/Teacher E-Letter — for information and ideas about licensing instruction, and for stories about how ham radio is being used in the classroom for learning and fun.
