Using RealTime Physics with different instructional technologies in a circuits lab
written by Mónica Quezada-Espinoza, Angeles Dominguez, and Genaro Zavala
Prior physics education studies have established a positive influence in learning when students use research-based strategies (mainly Tutorials) and instructional technologies in physics courses. This contribution studies learning outcomes and behavior when combining a research-based strategy that promotes collecting data, RealTime Physics (RTP), with different instructional technologies: 1) RTP using probes and computers (original version), 2) RTP with probes and a graphing calculator, and 3) RTP with PhET simulations. Participants in this study were 271 engineering students enrolled in a private Mexican university who are familiar with the use of Tutorials in the physics lab. The experiment was conducted in the circuits unit of an Electricity and Magnetism course. This qualitative study uses a research-based open-ended test and systematic lab observations. Results show that student learning and behavior are related to the type of instructional technology used in combination with RTP in the lab activities.
