Effective Practical Work in Science

McGill, Colin



Practical work is carried out in the science classroom to teach scientific concepts, increase motivation, develop practical skills and practise being a scientist. Research suggests that much practical work carried out in science classrooms has very little impact on the learning of scientific concepts. This presentation outlines how we can use principles from cognitive science to improve the use of practical work in the science classroom.
