Learning the Physics of Electricity: A Qualitative Analysis of Collaborative Processes Involved in Productive Failure
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 6, No. 1 (March 2011) pp. 57–73
Earlier quantitative studies in computer-supported collaborative learning identified "Productive Failure" (Kapur, Cognition and Instruction 26(3):379-424, "2008") as a phenomenon in which students experiencing relative failures in their initial...
To Guide or Not to Guide: Issues in the Sequencing of Pedagogical Structure in Computational Model-Based Learning
Interactive Learning Environments Vol. 23, No. 6 (2015) pp. 715–730
This research explores issues related to the sequencing of structure that is provided as pedagogical guidance. A study was conducted that involved grade 10 students in Singapore as they learned concepts about electricity using four NetLogo...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 24, No. 6 (2015) pp. 789–802
Model-based reasoning has been introduced as an authentic way of learning science, and many researchers have developed technological tools for learning with models. This paper describes how a model-based tool, "BioLogica"?, was used to...
