The subjects’ views in a Greek school were diagnosed and utilised in a constructivist approach to introducing DC circuits. Results suggested that various pupils’ views before and during the early stages of instruction can be modelled after an ‘energy framework’. The uses of this ‘energy framework’ in predicting and interpreting several phenomena, e.g. the Oersted experiment, the… CONTINUE READING
