Often, children learn science, influenced by their daily experiences that may lead to them having alternative conceptions (as distinguished from scientific conceptions or misconceptions). When these alternative conceptions are not addressed, they hinder the learning of scientific conceptions. In this webinar, we explore 5 sources of alternative conceptions and use the A.B.B.A. approach to engender conceptual change.
