Virtual Spring Collaborative Microworld

Networked virtual science

A demonstrator project to show how a real teaching problem could be tackled with networked Virtual Science. The aim was to create an environment in which the procedural aspects of the transformation of observation to data, and data to symbolic representation, could be brought out clearly. The shared microworld allows children to collaboratively collect data, make predictions and plot graphs. For older children, the graphs developed may then become a virtual spring balance for 'unknown' masses.
