Title: Exploiting IT simulations for interactivity, thinking and assessment in science education
Authors: Yap, Kueh Chin

Abstract: This paper will review the use of computer simulations in science classrooms and then introduce internet-based simulations. The paper will discuss one way of using IT simulations that conforms to a constructivist approach in science education. Elements of interactivity, thinking and assessment are introduced with the use of such IT simulations. Based on the performance of pre-service science teachers on afloating and sinking simulation, an assessment of their conceptual understanding and specific IT skills will be discussed. The paper will conclude by suggesting that the use of IT simulations should not replace laboratory experience.
