Abstract
Interactive digital video provides students with control of computer visualization techniques and provides them with opportunities to be involved in the "active" process of learning science as described by the National Science Education Standards. These visualization techniques allow students to collect, analyze, and model two-dimensional motion data from experiments they performed and recorded digitally themselves. Activities that utilize these techniques were developed to enable students to investigate the relationships among the physical concepts related to motion and situations which students could encounter outside the classroom. These activities illustrate how "user-friendly" technology can be effectively integrated into a learning environment in which students are engaged in the "active" process of learning physics. The evaluation of these activities indicate that they have the potential to offer students and teachers a better way to visualize, investigate, analyze, and understand the various topics in physics.
