Abstract

We present research design, application and evaluation of a learning environment took place, where with the use of software that supports collaborative learning, we succeeded improvement of students' learning in comprehension of concepts relative to electrical circuits and deepening in how they learn physics.

The curriculum topics of the Physics course in 8th level were about the electrical circuits. For 10 instructive hours, one experimental class (24 children) and three control classes (66 children) participated in this research which was held at the laboratories of informatics and physics of Athens Kostea-Geitona private school, during April and May 2002, as a part of the ICT European project ITCOLE http://www.euro-cscl.org/site/itcole (Innovative Technologies for Collaborative Learning Environments and Knowledge Building). This project focuses on developing innovative pedagogical models, design principles and technology for collaborative knowledge building to be used in European education.
