An Interactive Learning Environment Designed to Increase the Possibilities for Learning and Communicating about Radioactivity
Mork, Sonja M.
Interactive Learning Environments, v19 n2 p163-177 Mar 2011
Information and communication technology (ICT) is a natural part of most people's everyday life, and has also been introduced in schools. Previous studies have tended to focus on issues related to competency of teachers and lack of computer technology in schools. Focus now seems to be moving towards studies that help us understand how ICT may be used to enhance students learning. This article explores the learning environment "Radioactivity" from the Norwegian Viten project in order to provide insights into how features of the environment may influence student learning. A characteristic of the features of "Radioactivity" is provided and discussed in light of a set of quality principles for digital learning resources developed by the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency. (Contains 9 notes, 2 tables and 3 figures.)
