Pre-college electrical engineering instruction: do abstract or contextualized representations promote better learning?

Abstract

Pre-college students were randomly assigned to learn about electrical circuit analysis with an instructional program that included two problem solving practice conditions. In the first condition, students learned to solve parallel circuit problems that were contextualized around real electrical devices and represented with realistic diagrams. In the second… (More)
