Measuring the effectiveness of computer-based scientific visualisations for conceptual development in Australian chemistry classrooms
Global Learn 2010 (May 17, 2010) pp. 3536–3545
Visual modes of representation have always been very important in science and science education. Interactive computer-based animations and simulations offer new visual resources for chemistry education. Many studies have shown that students enjoy...
Topics: computer animations
But does it work? Effectiveness of scientific visualisations in high school chemistry and physics instruction
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2011 (Jun 27, 2011) pp. 2706–2715
Scientific visualisations such as computer-based animations and simulations are increasingly a feature of high school science instruction. Visualisations are adopted enthusiastically by teachers and embraced by students, and there is good evidence...
One Approach to Finding Evidence for the Effectiveness of Scientific Visualisations in High School Physics and Chemistry Education
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2009 (Jun 22, 2009) pp. 3258–3263
Enormous amounts of money and energy are being devoted to the development, use and organisation of computer-based scientific visualisations (e.g. animations and simulations) in science education. It seems plausible that visualisations that enable...
Scientific Visualisations for Developing Students' Understanding of Concepts in Chemistry: Some Findings and Some Lessons Learned
Teaching Science Vol. 60, No. 1 (March 2014) pp. 30–38
Scientific visualisations such as computer-based animations and simulations are increasingly a feature of high school Science instruction. Visualisations are adopted enthusiastically by teachers and embraced by students, and there is good evidence...
Order of instruction effects – do they make a difference when teaching senior chemistry with computer based visualizations?
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2011 (Jun 27, 2011) pp. 3123–3129
This study investigated whether conceptual development is greater if students learning senior chemistry hear teacher explanations and other traditional teaching approaches first then see computer based visualizations or vice versa. Five Canadian...
