Abstract:

Because many concepts in physics are non-engaging and difficult to understand, instructors in physics are challenged to fully engage students in the study of physics. For even the best students, current practices are not fully engaging and do not provide a deep understanding of fundamental principles. While traditional laboratory exercises are a good way to support and reinforce learning, haptic simulations can be more effective. Haptic feedback can increase understanding within a virtual environment in certain instances and can provide an additional modality for imparting tangible principles. In this paper, we discuss the design of an educational simulation tool using audio, visual and haptic feedback for learning basic concepts in physics at the elementary school student level.
