Use of a Microcomputer Simulation and Conceptual Change Text to Overcome Student Preconceptions about Electric Circuits.
Carlsen, David D.; Andre, Thomas
Journal of Computer-Based Instruction, v19 n4 p105-09 Fall 1992
Describes a study of undergraduates at Iowa State University that tested the effectiveness of a computer simulation of electric circuits used in combination with a conceptual change approach to science instruction. Erroneous preconceptions of scientific concepts are discussed, and the use of traditional text is compared with conceptual change text. (17 references) (LRW)
