Abstract

The purpose of this research was to develop and evaluate a system that could be used to support university students and graduate school students desiring to become teachers by providing the knowledge and skills necessary for them to provide instructions for scientific experiments; the system involved sharing awareness of issues using easy to use tablet PCs. The system required learners to perform touch operations by pointing at locations with pins of four colors, at which time they became aware of issues within the scenes of the experiments involving the pupils depicted in the manga displayed on the screen. The learners mutually shared the things they noticed using the sharing function. The manga displayed on the screen is a case method learning material, developed for the purpose of educating teachers. It is embedded with a diverse amount of knowledge and skills necessary to become a science teacher, while enabling learners to acquire the observation skills of teachers. The sharing function and the color-sorted frame advancing function of this system were rated positively by the students. Furthermore, learners suggested that the system could be improved by adding a memo function as well as a function for an overall view and for viewing arbitrary pages.
