Can students learn from PhET sims at home, alone?
written by Wendy K. Adams, Zachary Armstrong, and Cynthia Galovich
Most previous work on student learning with PhET Sims focuses on classroom environments where students work in groups, with scaffolding from both worksheets and instructors. By contrast, we present a study that demonstrates students can learn from PhET Sims when working independently, both in class and at home, when using appropriately scaffolded worksheets. Here we explore the space of when and how students can learn individually from PhET Sims.
