What Happens When Computer Software Is Used to Monitor Students' Conceptualization, Construction, and Analysis of Actual Electronic Circuits
Viviano, Thomas
Online Submission
Of primary concern is the ability of students high school age to be able to conceptualize what actually goes on in electronic circuitry in order for them to be able to build and troubleshoot with precision skill. The Fault Assisted Circuit Electronic Trainer (FACET) was used on three students to determine if this electronic computer-aided instruction would be beneficial in helping students understand and conceptualize this complicated circuitry. This was a qualitative study where after each exercise on the FACET System, the students were interviewed to determine what was difficult to understand, easy to understand, where they struggled, and what was beneficial about this type of learning. This study took place in an Electrical Technology class at a three-year half-time Career and Technical Center. A bibliography is included.
