  10. 10. Laboratory work is considered to be a key factor in Science Education Students can acquire a better and deeper understanding of physical phenomena and can develop scientific way of thinking. However, several studies provide evidence that during hands-on experiments students often tend to spend most of their time on handling equipment Thus limiting the effectiveness of hands-on experimentation
  11. 11. Virtual laboratories (VL)have emerged as powerful environments which can successfully support experimentation and student activities A large number of research studies suggest : virtual laboratories, as educational environments, are not inferior to their real counterparts
  12. 12. A lot of Applets available - Typically :  Do not have a realistic look and feel AND / OR  Are limited to predefined set-ups  Conceptually oriented vs. Manipulation oriented also
  13. 13. Offer all the advantages / features of Virtual Laboratories Are accessible freely at any time over the internet May break the natural barrier between the classroom, the laboratory, the school, and the community (students – parents)
