Towards a phenomenography of light and vision
Journal/Book: Int J Sci Educ. 1996; 18: One Gundpowder Square, London, England EC4A 3DE. Taylor & Francis Ltd. 837-845.
Abstract: This paper presents a novel structure for displaying a phenomenographical hierarchy, and then proceeds to construct such a hierarchy for children's ideas on light and vision. Five independent dimensions of cognitive demand are proposed. After a discussion of children's use of Emission and Reception models in different contexts, suggestions are put forward for progression in learning in this area.
