Abstract

In this paper we introduce a newly developed application for Android tablets that is designed based on the perspectives of constructivist learning and scientific modeling and representation. The purpose of this designed product is to facilitate visualization instruction and assessment in science class. We conducted an initial evaluation study for usability tests and investigated how case users from scientists, teachers, advanced learners and novice learners may use the tool to support their visualization of the concept of carbon cycling. Different patterns of use were identified for further research and tool development.
