Abstract

This paper presents an interactive web simulation (SimDiabolo), designed by education and computer education researchers. The activity, proposed to students from 15 to 17 years old, is about designing an experimental procedure to highlight alcoholic fermentation in biology. In order to help students in this complex task, fixed and adaptive scaffolds have been designed and implemented in the simulation. The anthropological theory of the didactic has been used for modeling errors and designing scaffolds. The simulation can also be connected to present software FORMID, which can modify the actual script implemented in SimDiabolo and offer different scripts with different scaffolds. Experimentations will take place this year in biology class in high school (France).
