Contribution: @Beta Digital multimedia materials for education in biology, chemistry and physics
school level: High school level
type of communication: oral
In the AMSTEL Institute of the University of Amsterdam has been
developed a complete digital educational method: @beta
Some features of the method are:
1. Multimedia approach: Students measure with the aid of ICT, work with modelling and interactive video.
2. Rich material: More material than necessary; Students can use their own learning style.
3. Self-evaluation: Students criticise their own activities: A logfile system saves the activities of the students, so the teacher can control the results.
4. Credits: In a credit system students learn with some game elements.
Several schools are testing the @beta. The first research results are positive.
