Instructional Design of Scientific Simulations and Modeling Software to Support Student Construction of Perceptual to Conceptual Bridges
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2002 (2002) pp. 1904–1909
This paper describes the theoretical basis for a constructivist design which can help students develop a set of mental models that increasingly correspond to scientific models to explain or predict scientific phenomena. These student-constructed...
Gender and Spatial Ability and the Use of Specific Labels and Diagrammatic Arrows in a Micro-Level Chemistry Animation
Journal of Educational Computing Research Vol. 41, No. 1 (2009) pp. 83–102
This study investigates the effects of using both specific labels and diagrammatic arrows in the animation of salt dissolution. Four different versions of the animation served as treatments that were developed based upon principles of educational...
International Conference on Mathematics / Science Education and Technology 1999 (1999) pp. 531–536
In this paper we describe the features that are needed in a multimedia module to enhance the visualization skills of students enrolled in general chemistry courses. Visualization of chemical phenomena and abstract chemical principles can help them ...
Impact of a Pre-Laboratory Organic-Extraction Simulation on Comprehension and Attitudes of Undergraduate Chemistry Students
Chemistry Education Research and Practice Vol. 9, No. 2 (2008) pp. 169–181
Many students perform extraction experiments without connecting relevant molecular features to corresponding macroscopic features. Two versions of an Organic Extraction Simulation, one with text "captions" and the other with "narration" accompanying ...
