What is this study all about
What is this study all about? Source Simulation

Explore the design, customization and use of customized energy simulation in elementary classroom


Why is this study significant
Why is this study significant? Source Simulation

  • Literature review conducted by Smetana and Bell (2012)

    • Conducted in ERIC and Education Fulltext database

    • Only 2 of the 61 (3.3%) studies were conducted in elementary school

  • Triangulated by searches in Web of Science

    • Using “simulation” and "elementary school" and “science

    • 3 studies in primary school context

  • Google Search : Not much simulations in primary school context

    Lack of Research in Elementary School

  • Self-Directed Learning with Simulation

    ““I like the fact that we can experiment with the simulation by ourselves, and the simulation is very interactive.” T”

    ““We don't understand we can check ourselves”.

  • Enhanced learning with the Design Features

    “The indication of height (blue line) helps me to see the relationship between GPE and height”

    “KE depends on the speed. The yellow arrow on the simulation shows that when the speed is low (like 7.3 m/s), the KE is 26.3J. But when the arrow is longer (faster) (like 11.3m/s) the KE is 60.5J.”

    “The total energy is made up of KE and GPE. The bar at the sides shows the bar. The TE bar shows both KE and GPE”
