Abstract: 
In this paper, the researchers collaborated with an experienced physics teacher to
design a multimodality modeling workshop involving a 3D computer model to facilitate the
workshop participants’ learning of their self-generated astronomy topic – lunar libration.
The modified visual representation in computer model improved the quality of their
observation experiences and assisted them to consolidate their understanding on lunar
libration. Participatory learning environment created through the Embodied Modeling
Mediated Activity (EMMA) encouraged learners to investigate their interest driven and
self-generated inquiry. Researchers modified and integrated modeling software (i.e.
Astronomicon) to support learners’ interests. Multimodality was employed to mediate the
self-directed exploration and collaborative discussion in understanding the lunar libration.
This finding implies that it is important to establish a sustainable learning community to
design and conduct multimodality modeling lessons in informal learning settings.
