International Conference on Mathematics / Science Education and Technology 2000 (2000) pp. 207–213
One of the more fruitful innovations in science education has been the use of computer-based manipulatives (herein referred to as CBMs) — open-ended, exploratory environments within which students can solve problems and conduct investigations in a ...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2004 (2004) pp. 1817–1822
The Concord Consortium has developed a powerful technological infrastructure that supports the rapid development and deployment of learning activities that monitor and scaffold students' interactions with manipulable models in biology, chemistry,...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 3, No. 3 (1994) pp. 161–85
Describes a project that explores the use of interactive computer software for teaching Einstein's special theory of relativity to secondary students. Also describes ways to use computers to help students visualize and experiment with otherwise...
Journal of Education Vol. 181, No. 2 (1999) pp. 1–23
Describes the hypermodel approach to designing science education software. Hypermodels combine stored or web-based multimedia materials with a manipulable model of the subject domain. Hypermodels are scriptable, and are powerful tools for creating...
Integrating Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment, and Evaluation in a Technology-Supported Genetics Learning Environment
American Educational Research Journal Vol. 40, No. 2 (2003) pp. 495–538
This article describes an extended collaboration between a development team and an evaluation team working with GenScope, an open-ended exploratory software tool. In some respects, this was a routine evaluation, documenting substantial gains (of...
Advancing Educational Theory by Enhancing Practice in a Technology-Supported Genetics Learning Environment
Journal of Education Vol. 181, No. 2 (1999) pp. 25–55
Highlights key points from national reports addressing contemporary perspectives on learning theory, K-12 educational technology, educational theory development, and educational research policy, using illustrations from GenScope, an open-ended...
Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association 2000 (April 2000)
This paper discusses the role of high school chemistry teachers' beliefs in implementing computer visualization software to teach atomic and molecular structure from a quantum mechanical perspective. The informants in this study were four high...
