Abstract:

An innovative approach (which we labeled CONNECT) presents a pedagogical and technological mode crosscutting the boundaries between schools and science centers as well as involving both students and teachers as playful learners. Learning pathways are offered to facilitate in situ learning by implementing an innovative educational environment provided by an augmenting technology mode. This paper describes the educational and technical pathway setting and its implementation at a selected museum site as well as its relevant evaluation figures. The specific theme maintains the issue of a typical physics school content (of friction). Participation in the proposed activities positively influences students' intrinsic motivation as well as cognitive learning. Combining school science with students' activities in a science museum, as well as introducing advanced visualizations to a physical phenomenon, seems to make a substantial difference.
