Exploring Shifts in Middle School Learners' Modeling Activity While Generating Drawings, Animations, and Computational Simulations of Molecular Diffusion

Michelle H. Wilkerson-Jerde, Brian E. Gravel, Christopher A. Macrander
2014 Journal of Science Education and Technology  
In this paper, we explore the practices of five sixth-grade girls as they generated models of smell diffusion using drawing, stopmotion animation, and computational simulation during a multi-day workshop  ...  Modeling and using technology are two practices of particular interest to K-12 science educators.  ...  We found that the girls engaged in two distinct cycles of modeling practice. The first emerged as they created drawings and animations, and the second as they created computational simulations.  ...
