Predators Of Knowledge Construction: Interpreting Students’ Metacognition In An Amusement Park Physics Program

- Oct 07, 2017 -

Organized school visits to informal contexts are important learning opportunities where students are allowed, and often encouraged, to manage and direct their own learning There is a developing literature on learning in out-of-school settings. Amusement park physics programs are informal science-learning contexts that are be-coming increasingly popular components of school physics experiences. This popularity can be attributed to the fact that they provide enjoyable, rich, authentic, and salient real-life experiences of physics principles that can be often quite conceptually challenging for students. Amusement park physics programs provide students with opportunities to “experience” the theoretical aspects of kinematics and to think deeply about their problem-solving processes, including their scientific reasoning ability.
