|Title:||Evaluation of an Educational Computer Programme as a Change Agent in Science Classrooms||Contributor(s):||Muwanga-Zake, Johnnie Wycliffe (author)||Publication Date:||2007||DOI:||10.1007/s10956-007-9078-y||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2972||Abstract:||I report on benefits from 26 teacher-participant evaluators of a computer game designed to motivate learning and to ease conceptual understanding of biology in South Africa. Using a developmental, social constructivist and interpretative model, the recommendation is to include the value systems and needs of end-users (through social dialogue); curriculum issues (learning theories in the ECP and those the education authorities recommend, as well as ECP-curriculum integration); the nature of the subject the ECP presents (e.g., Nature of Science); and the compatibility of the ECP with school computers.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Science Education and Technology, 16(6), p. 473-490||Publisher:||Springer Netherlands||Place of Publication:||Amsterdam, The Netherlands||ISSN:||1059-0145||Field of Research (FOR):||130306 Educational Technology and Computing||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 17
