Why May Students Fail To Learn from Demonstrations? A Social Practice Perspective on Learning in Physics.
Roth, Wolff-Michael; And Others
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v34 n5 p509-33 May 1997
Explores why students fail to learn from teacher demonstrations in a physics course. Reports that six dimensions may have prevented student learning, including lack of a theoretical framework to separate signals from noise, interference of discourses learned in other contexts, interference from other demonstrations and images, and problems in piecing together coherent representational frameworks. Contains 44 references. (Author/JRH)
