Study of the impact of simulation experiments on the teaching of DC electric circuits (Master thesis)

Σταύρου, Χρίστος


The subject of this dissertation in which research was conducted using questionnaire and teaching interventions is to highlight students' misconceptions about DC circuits and to confound them using a simulation environment. Specifically, at the first part were recorded the positions of the main learning theories and the teaching models in the natural sciences. In order to achieve the aim of the work it is attempted to present and analyze the role of the experiment in the educational process as well as the integration of the technologies into it. It also emphasizes the theoretical framework regarding the concept of students' alternative ideas. The second part of the paper presents the reflection, the importance and the four research questions on which the research was based. In particular, was studied: a) The relationship between gender and questionnaire grade, b) The alternative ideas that appeared in the questionnaire, c) The frequency of each alternative idea in each question of the questionnaire, and d) The extent to which alternative ideas were countered by teaching interventions. The conclusions of the study are that the initial gender score difference was reduced after the teaching interventions, while at the same time the percentages of occurrence of the misconceptions decreased in their majority.
