Abstract [en]

In this paper, we investigate the ways in which an open-ended software can support the learning of physics through a case study of a pair of students using Algodoo, a creativity-based 2D Newtonian physics environment which, in contrast to the majority of educational simulations, is not targeted for the investigation of a specific phenomenon (or subset of phenomena). Specifically, we explore how open-ended software such as Algodoo supports the learning of physics by (1) allowing users to experience the variation of physical parameters and, importantly, by (2) requiring users to discern those parameters which are relevant to the learning situation at hand.
