Published as part of the Advances in Learning and Instruction series, Modelling Changes in Understanding brings together Psychologists, Science Educators and Computer Scientists to describe and explain how we develop an understanding of the physical world around us. The contributors examine how changes in our understanding and consequent learning can be modelled using computer software.

Focussing on the discipline of Physics, this volume discusses the following topics: the difference in the organisation of knowledge between experts and novices; the construction of accurate models of the learner at different stages in the knowledge acquisition process; computer models which claim to answer questions and accumulate understanding in a similar way to human beings.

Psychologists, science educators, and computer scientists describe and explain how people develop an understanding of the physical world around them, and examine how changes in that understanding and consequent learning can be modelled using computer software. Focusing on the discipline of physics, they discuss the difference in the organization of knowledge between experts and novices; constructing accurate models of the learner at different stages in the process of acquiring knowledge; and computer models that claim to answer questions and accumulate understanding in a way similar to human beings.
