Physics Teacher Vol. 45, No. 8 (November 2007) pp. 475–480
Modeling has been shown to correct weaknesses of traditional instruction by engaging students in the design of physical models to describe, explain, and predict phenomena. Although the modeling method can be used without computers, the use of...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2003 (2003) pp. 791–794
Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) is an interactive tool developed for the conceptual learning of science. Ejs is designed for teachers and students who want to create (or modify) scientific simulations. They can then concentrate their effort in writing...

Computers & Education Vol. 52, No. 1 (January 2009) pp. 126–140
Web-based learning environments are becoming increasingly popular in higher education. One of the most important web-learning resources is the virtual laboratory (VL), which gives students an easy way for training and learning through the Internet....
The Integration of Computer Simulation and Learning Support: An Example from the Physics Domain of Collisions
Ton de Jong; Ernesto Martin; Jose-Miguel Zamarro; Francisco Esquembre; Janine Swaak; Wouter R. van Joolingen
Journal of Research in Science Teaching Vol. 36, No. 5 (1999) pp. 597–615
Discusses a case study on discovery learning with a computer simulation environment in the physics domain of collisions. Finds that providing assignments with the simulation improves students' performance on one aspect of an intuitive-knowledge test....
Physics Teacher Vol. 49, No. 5 (May 2011) pp. 273–276
Computer simulations are widely used in physics instruction because they can aid student visualization of abstract concepts, they can provide multiple representations of concepts (graphical, trajectories, charts), they can approximate real-world...
