Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

It is essential to investigate how classroom activities and interactions with computer simulations contribute to students' understanding of unobservable processes in science. To accomplish this, we developed and implemented a computer simulation as a Java computer application. In our case study we examine how our simulation unit supports a teacher in fostering students' understanding of Le Châtelier's Principle in chemistry. In the showcase presentation we will visually present the plan and development of a case study, the theoretical framework for the simulation's design and accompanying pedagogical material. Furthermore, the computer simulation unit will be demonstrated and we will provide an opportunity for the conference attendees to interact with the computer simulation system.
