Effects of a Prior Virtual Experience on StudentsÔøΩ Interpretations of Real Data

Our previous work has shown that experimentation with virtual manipulatives supports studentsÔøΩ conceptual learning about simple machines differently than experimentation with physical manipulatives [1]. This difference could be due to the ÔøΩmessinessÔøΩ of physical data from factors such as dissipative effects and measurement uncertainty. In this study, we ask whether the prior experience of performing a virtual experiment affects how...
