Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, v12 n2 Article 9 Dec 2011
Electrochemistry is found to be a difficult topic to learn due to its abstract concepts that involve the macroscopic, microscopic and symbolic representation levels. Research showed that animation and simulation using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can help students to visualize and hence enhance students' understanding in learning abstract chemistry topics. As a result, IMMPA named EC Lab was developed in order to assist students in the learning of the Electrochemistry topic. A preliminary investigation was carried out in a secondary school involving 35 students to test on the usability of the module developed. Instruments involved were pretest, post-test and a motivation questionnaire. Results showed that the students have higher scores on their post-test as well as gained higher motivation level after learning with the EC Lab. (Contains 4 tables and 4 figures.)
