The Effects oF 4C-ID Model Approach on Acquisition and Transfer of Knowledge about Electric Circuits
Melo, Mário; Miranda, Guilhermina Lobato
International Journal of Web-Based Learning and Teaching Technologies, v13 n1 Article 7 p94-110 2018
This paper reports the first results of an experimental research, carried out in a private school with 9th grade students, where the 4C/ID-model was used for teaching and learning electric circuits. The authors describe the principles and features of the instructional model, that is suitability for the teaching and learning of complex knowledge and skills and yet their permeability to develop digital educational resources and learning environments. The authors analyse the preliminary experimental results in terms of students' performance (both reproduction and learning transfer), mental effort and instructional efficiency. They also suggest clues to future research.
