The use of multiple cameras to capture students' virtual and real actions
This paper explores the value of multiple video sources to capture both the real (i.e. physical/concrete) and virtual actions of science students as they interacted with computer models to reason about natural selection in an informal learning environment. Expand
Collecting and managing multiple video data sources for visual semiotic analysis of science students' reasoning with digital representations
We explore the use of digital representations, in this case multi-agent based computer modelling software (NetLogo), by students to reason about natural selection as a complex systems phenomenon. Expand
A representation construction pedagogy of guided inquiry for learning data modelling
ABSTRACT Increasingly, learning in science and mathematics is considered in terms of induction into the multimodal language practices of the disciplinary community. A strong strand of research inExpand
