    Are there any differences between these two forms?

    It depends on the context.

    I think it would be better if you wrote some sentences showing how you think they should be used.

    Re: Have shown/showed

    Well,
    1.I have shown my homework to the teacher
    2.I have showed my homework to the teacher.

    The point is that I really have no idea about differences between these two sentences. I don't even know whether it is possible at all to say "I have showed..."
    So are both of the sentences correct?
