Evaluation of an Educational Computer Programme as a Change Agent in Science Classrooms
Muwanga-Zake, Johnnie Wycliffe Frank
Journal of Science Education and Technology, v16 n6 p473-490 Dec 2007
I report on benefits from 26 teacher-participant evaluators of a computer game designed to motivate learning and to ease conceptual understanding of biology in South Africa. Using a developmental, social constructivist and interpretative model, the recommendation is to include the value systems and needs of end-users (through social dialogue); curriculum issues (learning theories in the ECP and those the education authorities recommend, as well as ECP-curriculum integration); the nature of the subject the ECP presents (e.g., Nature of Science); and the compatibility of the ECP with school computers.
