Impact of WLABEL exploitation on electricity learning: analysis of the students’ conceptual evolution
AbstractFrom studies whose objectives were the diagnostic of students’ conceptions and the development of teaching strategies to promote conceptual change, we designed a learning environment (WLABEL – Windows Electricity Laboratory) that aims the promotion of conceptual change in electricity. In this contribution, we briefly present the learning environment. The main purpose of the paper is to describe the qualitative studies carried out to evaluate the impact of WLABEL in students’ conceptual development. Since we have used several instruments, special attention is dedicated to the data triangulation carried out and to the analysis processes. In the last section a synthesis of the results is also presented.
