Multitouch Experiment Instruction for a Better Learning Outcome in Chemistry Education
Multitouch Experiment Instructions (MEI) are interactive multimedia eBooks as a full-digital or Augmented Reality (AR) Instructions as a digital-augmented material for the individual promotion of learning while experimenting in chemistry lessons. They provide a digitized experimental instruction, which is made to support both cognitive weak and strong pupils in the sense of individualization. The aim of the MEI project is to improve pupil’s self-regulated learning using a digitized experimental manual which is based to main results of didactic and scientific learning. Initial research results have shown that the presentation of information follows a structured learning process. To connect the promotion of self-regulated learning, digital competences and experimental skills an existing experiment “Characterization of Alkanes” has been digitalized as one Multitouch Experiment Instruction.
