Model-based inquiry vs. Traditional computer simulation-based instruction: Which can better help students construct the quantum-mechanical model of an atom?
written by Tugba Yuksel, N. Sanjay Rebello, and Lynn Bryan
Research suggests that students' conceptual models play an essential role in their understanding. Therefore, model-based inquiry has been considered as an instructional method in which learners have the opportunity to actively build and use their models. In this study, we investigated students' model evolution during their learning experience with model-based instruction. We analyzed students' model transition process as they engaged with a sequence of activities supported with physical, computer-based, and mathematical models. We compared the results with students' who received traditional computer-based instruction. Results show that students who received model-based inquiry instruction increased the sophistication of their explanation and gained more accurate understanding compared to traditional compute-based instruction group.
