Managing Student Conceptions about Evolution Using the Integration of Multiliteracies in the Classroom
Williams, Jenni-Lea
Teaching Science, v55 n1 p10-14 Mar 2009
Educators are increasingly looking to Information and Communications Technology (ICT) as a means of enhancing student learning. The New Life Sciences (NLS) is a domain where complex and often abstract concepts must be communicated from a scientific perspective and understood by the student in terms of their underlying implications. This intervention study examined students' misconceptions about evolution and identified ways through which these misconceptions could be influenced by the use of ICT. The results of this pilot study indicate that pedagogically-sound use of ICT in the classroom can benefit student learning and dispel student misconceptions about evolution. (Contains 2 tables.)
