Abstract
A domain of research in physics teaching is focused on the study of the effects of different types of learning interventions aimed to help students build a scientific conception. Microscopic Virtual Media (MVM) is the application of a particular interest in physics learning because they can support microscopic powerful modeling involves physics concepts and processes. In this study, one group (experimental) of 19-20 year old students were studied to determine the MVM role in the development of a functional understanding of the concept of expansion of solids. The experimental group used MVM using DLSM (Dual Situated Learning Model). The results presented here indicate that students work with virtual media exhibited significantly higher scores in research tasks. Our findings strongly support that MVM can be used as an alternative instructional tool, in order to help students confront reduce their scientific misconceptions and develop an understanding of physics concepts
