Ugandan physics curriculum

The Uganda Physics curriculum page needs much more refinement.--White Eagle 07:54, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

I am looking at a way to add in the details, which will need to create new pages for each topic.--Vkizza 19:07, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
No problem, just create sub-pages. See the example I've created already.--White Eagle 09:25, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
One more thing with new pages: We should try to use "talking" uniform resource locators (URL). F. ex. 535 - Physics, the URL Rswells, the author of the page choose, does not say much. Better would be "Ugandan physics curriculum". What do you think?--White Eagle 09:40, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Ugandan curriculum outdated

My view is that the entire Ugandan curriculum,in particular the physics one is outdated,extremely large/big and out of touch with current global realities. Take for instance where it misses out on the whole topic of electronics(more so in this era of digital electronics!!)and includes only stuff up to the diode and nothing about logic circuits. Also completely nothing on astronomy as if we are training Ugandans only for the Ugandan market! So one practical way forward would be how to create a forum where we can talk to curriculum developers and also see how other people do it in other countries.--Jlubega 17:09, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi Joseph, welcome to this new platform for physics teachers! May it comfort you a little that electronics in the Bavarian curriculum plays a marginal role too? But of course, you're right, and our curriculum is not up to date neither. But what does that mean for our work here in WE? Do you propose we should begin working on digital electronics? I think for influence on the curriculum: We are building up such a forum for physics teachers in Uganda, and the more members we have, the more influence we'll gain and the more we'll be taken serious by official educational planners. Yeah, astronomy, I'd like to work on this myself as I love astronomy since I'm a youngster. I had this theme up with Vincent already and we say that we'd wait with that still and concentrate on those things that are more in the core of the given curriculum. In order to gain importance. Here in Bavaria, astronomy is obligatory in grade 10 (astronomy) and optional in grade 12 (astrophysics, one year!).--White Eagle 10:07, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
