Abstract

Modelling is nowadays a well-established methodology in the sciences, supporting the inquiry and understanding of complex phenomena and systems in the natural, social and artificial worlds. Hence its strong potential as pedagogical approach fostering students' learning of scientific concepts and skills, in a systemic perspective. Modelling helps learners to express and externalise their thinking; visualise and test components of their theories; and make materials more interesting. Modelling and simulation in education can thus make a significant contribution to improve science learning.
