Özet

In this study, the effectiveness of visual multimedia supported conceptual change texts (VMMSCCTexts) on overcoming senior high school students’ misconception about boiling concept has been studied. Two students’ misconception about boiling concept addressing in this study, that is: 1) Boiling is identic with high temperatures, and 2) At the time of boiling, the fastest rate of water convection. VMMSCCText was designed based on students’ misconceptions by following six-phase Conceptual Change Model (CCM) synthesized by Stepans.Visual multimedia used in these texts included image (photo), virtual simulation and Video. These texts were tried out on senior high school students at one high school in Bandung district. A quasi-experiment method with design one control group (n=36) and one experimental group (n=36) were used. Experiment group were given the VMMSCCText, whereas the control group were given CCText. Data were collected by two item conceptual test in the three tier test format concerning boiling concept. When the results of the study were examined as to the quantity of student whose misconceptions are remediated and who have consistency of scientific conceptions in the two groups, it was found that the number of students whose misconceptions are remediated and who have consistency of scientific conceptions in the VMMSCCText group was higher than that of the CCText group. It is believed that these visual multimedia used in these texts can be concretize concepts that represent abstract phenomena enable to show many processes to students which are imposible to show; thus, it becomes possible to remove students’misconceptions and prevent any possible misconceptions
