A multimedia-based learning environment

In September, Daniela Stengel finished her MEd thesis within the TEMI project in Bremen, Germany. Ms. Stengel developed a multimedia-based learning environment to introduce or extend acid-base-theory for the lower secondary chemistry classroom. The system operates the TEMI mystery of the Chameleon Bubbles, an acid-base-experiment based on alginate bubbles filled with an indicator solution in a calcium chloride solution (like in Bubble Tea). The learning environment follows the 5E model and allows for guided and structured learning; it includes pictures, PREZI-learning pathways, ideas for experimental inquiries, and quizzes for students’ self assessment. The learning environment will soon be available on the TEMI website to be used during TEMI pre-service workshops and in the class by teachers.
