Abstract

The current study explores the learning effects of applying LEGO NXT in the science and life technology course based on the situated learning theory. Two fifth-grade classes of experimental group use LEGO NXT in the teaching; and the other two are control group by integrating information technology into the teaching.
The results reveal that the learning effects of students instructed with LEG NXT in the teaching are superior to students instructed with information technology integrated in the teaching. Meanwhile, using LEGO NXT is sufficient playfulness but not ease of use. Furthermore, Using LEGO NXT in the teaching has a positive impact on learning effects.
