The tools on this site can be used to draw chemical structures more accurately for students to visualise and challenge their comprehension.
The use of simulations in Chemdoodle allow students to “interact with one another, the equipment and the environment in a goal-oriented way.” (Dieckmann, 2009). Teachers can use this resource to make highly detailed chemical bonds and add any information which is required depending on the year level to engage critical thought. Having a mobile app version also provides a tool for students to use at home during explanations with other family members.
