Abstract Title: Promoting Students’ Conceptual Knowledge and Representational Competence using Video Analysis on Tablet Computers
Abstract: The common idea of video analysis in physics education so far is that students record the motion of an object using a video camera, transfer the video on a computer and analyze it with a suitable software. In our approach students perform video analysis time-efficiently using only tablet computers. We present the results of a study which examines learning effects of tablet-PC-based video analysis in high school physics courses in a pre-posttest design with treatment and control groups for two essential topics of mechanics, the uniform motion and the accelerated motion of an object. The results show that the treatment leads to significantly higher learning gain regarding conceptual knowledge in comparison to traditional teaching without video-based motion analysis. In order to confirm our results, a reproduction study with a larger sample size was executed, which additionally investigates the impact of affective variables on students' performance.
