Abstract

This paper presents the cross-thematic scenario “Free fall simulation development” as a framework for activities, using the multimedia programming environment MicroWorlds Pro (MicroWorlds Pro 1.1 - Greek version and the incorporated Logo programming language). This scenario combines elements from informatics, natural sciences and mathematics, and places emphasis on the development of models, programs and multimedia applications as combined projects. The paper's aim is to discuss the basic parameters of an effective alternative didactical approach, in the level of planning, development and implementation, as well as to support the teaching community with particular suggestions for implementation.
