Keengwe, Jared; Onchwari, Grace; Wachira, Patrick – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2008
Political and institutional support has enabled many institutions of learning to spend millions of dollars to acquire educational computing tools (Ficklen and Muscara, "Am Educ" 25(3):22-29, 2001) that have not been effectively integrated into the curriculum. While access to educational technology tools has remarkably improved in most schools,…

Masson, Steve; Vazquez-Abad, Jesus – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2006
This paper proposes a new way to integrate history of science in science education to promote conceptual change by introducing the notion of historical microworld, which is a computer-based interactive learning environment respecting historic conceptions. In this definition, "interactive" means that the user can act upon the virtual environment by…
