Abstract

In the present paper a comparison between the ideas of two groups of students, both of which were taught the same physics laboratory curriculum but using two different instruction approaches is presented. The experimental group was asked to watch some videos including the associated links to Physics theory explaining the phenomena to be observed, gather the information needed and then perform the experiments involved, while the control group followed the traditional lab teaching practice. The aim was (a) to investigate if it is feasible for students to watch a science experiment on a video clip, and then to construct and repeat in the science-lab what they have just watched on video, b) measure the extent to which students that follow this new instruction approach can achieve a similar level of understanding of the scientific topic addressed by the hands-on science experiment, as the students that were instructed how to conduct the school experiment in the traditional way. The final results of this dual educational trial are presented in this paper, while conclusions are presented and discussed.
