    • Conceptual Change Theory and Scientific Visualisations
    • Conceptual Change Theory
      • Science knowledge can be thought of as a network of connected concepts, rather than as disconnected individual ‘factoids’
      • Students come to the classroom with existing ideas and explanations for the things they see around them
      • Some of these concepts are correct, or close to correct, others are not
      • The incorrect ones are often called ‘misconceptions’, ‘alternative conceptions’, ‘naïve conceptions’ or ‘children’s science’
      • Conceptual change theory is a way of thinking about the process by which students change from their misconceptions to more correct conceptions
      • The four parts of the model are:
        • Dissatisfaction with the current concept
      • The availability of a new concept that is
        • Intelligible
        • Plausible
        • Fruitful
